Hayden has been waiting and WAITING for his turn.
This past Thursday, he was sent home with a "get to know you" poster to fill out and return on Tuesday (since it was a long weekend). On Friday, I get to go to school with Hade and share a few other things about him. I asked him if we're supposed to bring a treat and he said No. They're only allowed to bring a snack. So I had better make sure to call it a snack. He would like to take Smarties. I can't help but wonder if Smarties really count as a snack and not a treat??
Anyway, because I'm in running for the Mother of the Year award, I remembered many times over the long weekend that I needed to work on Hayden's poster but I never actually acted upon that. My awesomeness resulted in leaving us with the quest to complete the poster in an hours time this morning.
Luckily, Hayden likes to color. (don't worry, we spiked his hair into a faux-hawk before he went to school)
I used my very impressive coloring skills to draw his name. He filled out everything else. It reads (along with my commentary):
All About Hayden
I am 6 years old. My favorite animal is a shark. My favorite color is Red. My favorite food is Pizza (and breadsticks and cheese bread but when I told him that was a lot of letters he decided to just go with Pizza).
This is what I look like.
(mental note: order a replacement pic since I cut this one up)
(mental notes: order replacement pictures of both of these and get someone else to take a picture of Drew and I where our heads aren't THISBIG because WOW!)
McDonalds is my favorite place.
(please note the dual exhaust on the car.. that's because it's fast *insert big engine noises that Hade made*)
(have to say this also really surprised me since I don't think he's been inside of a McDonalds for literally years.. all those germs freak me out!!!)
When I grow up, I want to be- Artist
(the art palette has each color he used while drawing this picture and the art piece has a blueberry bush and a tree, the hole is for a squirrel)
My favorite thing to do is Wii Lego Star Wars
(he's holding the wii remotes in his hands.. that's our big TV up on the entertainment center *in attempt to try and keep Carson from breaking it* and on the screen is Luke, Obi Wan and Darth Maul, all holding light sabers)
If I had one wish, I would wish for A Water Park
(ok, on the left of the castle is two different slides, then there's a bridge with water across it and on the top of the right castle there is a bucket which dumps water out. There is a pool under it all)
He's such a great kid!! I hope he has a lot of fun at school this week. What a relief it was to get this all finished in time.
Only took 3 smarties worth of motivation, too.
