I mentioned a while back that I love when babies/toddlers have dimples where knuckles will someday grow. To update, Jack Henry at age 3 (and 75th percentile for weight and 50th percentile for height) still has dimply-knuckle areas. Yay.
Ebates is totally working, friends! If you aren’t using this and you shop online at all, you should totally sign up. It’s so very simple: after you’ve signed up (which takes 2 minutes), you go to their website before you go to the site at which you want to shop. Click on the link from the ebates site to get to your shopping site (1200+ sites participate), and start shopping. You can even use other coupon codes for free shipping, etc at the site like you normally would. Then, a couple of days later, ebates credits your ebates account with whatever percentage cashback that site offered (from 1-15%…no joke, I just earned 11.5% back on Snapfish purchases). And you get paid quarterly via check or deposit in your Paypal account.
Do so here. I’ll get $5 when you sign up and then make a $25 purchase through ebates. And then you can do the same for your family and friends!
In regards to how school is going for the boys: overall, really well. I think I can say that we’ve successfully transferred to the new school with no “I-wish-I-was-at-the-old-school” feelings anymore. Such a relief.
However, I will say that the small amount of homework that Luke has each night has started to be a problem. In that he never wants to do it. Starting today, in lieu of me yelling my brains out or just flat-out losing my mind, I typed up a list of rules for after school. I didn’t want to go there, but I had to. It goes like this:
1. Wash your hands.
2. Empty folder and lunchbox.
3. Have a snack.
4. Do all homework, including daily math facts.
5. Playtime – outside, Wii, toys, whatever.
I’ve told him that for now, and until I see a major change in attitude, there will be absolutely no deviating from the list unless he has an after-school meeting. We’ll see how this goes…
All for now. Must sleep.
