When I found out that this week was teacher appreciation week, I freaked out a bit. I knew I didn't have much time to come up with something they'd love. I used a fabulous printable from Jen Gallacher to make things much easier. I had the kids sign them and I framed them in a shadow box frame. The kids and I also made flower pens. They're super simple and the teachers all adored them.
I also picked up the girls' new glasses on Tuesday. Alexis picked these glasses because they weren't the ones I liked. I kid you not. She said, "Well, which ones do you like?" I pointed to the pair I liked and said, "I like those." She didn't hesitate a single second. She said, "Good. I'll take the other ones." Lucky for me... Both of the frames were cute. I just liked the other pair better. I may have to start doing the whole reverse psychology thing. I swear, she's 11 going on 17.
Miss Jordan has always chosen metal frames, so it surprised me when she said she wanted plastic glasses. I asked her why, and she said it's because she wants to be stylish. She also wants to "look older". I haven't figured out the reasoning on that yet. Who knows?!
Jordan and I went to lunch together yesterday because she didn't like what was on the menu at school. I decided to stop before I dropped her off after her therapy appointment. She loves Chinese food a lot. I couldn't believe that she ate an entire plate of food and a huge plate of desserts. She doesn't eat much usually so we have to beg her to eat.
We got our fortune cookies with the bill and Jordan couldn't wait to open them. She gets so excited to see what they say.
Jordan's fortune couldn't have been more perfect! She said, "Mom, It's like they knew I am special needs." "I have to remember this."
Last but definitely not least, I finally got my hands on the January 2013 issue of Scrapbook Trends. Check it out! I can't believe it! Brandon said, "I'm famous Mom!" He sure is. Jordan was disappointed that it wasn't her photo in the magazine. She doesn't know, but I have another layout being published later this year that does have pictures of her on it.
