i made the mistake of bringing the kids with me to the store to look for a birthday present. of course, they will find something they want. but malia has been wanting this panda since she saw it at costco last year. and how could i say no when she was buying it with her own money, and it was 50% off. it was a steal at $18. so there she is sleeping with him, kinda. then she took a selfie with it. and i'm glad she's sharing him with micah, cuz we are not getting another one. the panda is huge!

i'm always shocked when honor roll time comes around and m&m bring me slips that they are getting an award. malia's backpack is full of papers that are folded at least 2 times. i don't know how she finds things in there. i have to tell her to clean out her backpack every week. even at parent-teacher conference, her teacher asked her if she cleaned out her desk. micah leaves his homework at school sometimes or forgets to turn it in. his folder is clearly marked, one side english and the other spanish. all he has to do is turn it in.
but despite their disorganization, they are doing well, so i'm glad. i guess i can't complain. my room was very messy growing up, and i turned out alright, i think =).

annual physical time! funny how their hearing is perfectly fine yet they don't hear me call their names most of the time. malia finally weighs more than micah again, but she's still small. dr garcia always tells her she's fat and needs to exercise. my micah boy is just right he said. flu shots came and it was a miracle that the girl didn't cry. she squeezed me really tight though.

this boy gave up candy for Lent, but was quick to tell me,"popsicles don't count mom," as we passed the popsicle line at school. he always wants to buy popsicles at school. somehow they aren't the same as buying them from the store. he knows he has to earn them by being good in class. at least the money is going back to the school.
