So, I know this is supposed to be a SL blog but I don't always have SL stuff to blog about so I am just going to blog about whatever is important to me at the time or about whatever interests me.
Last weekend our soon to be adopted son moved in and my husband and I took the week off to help get us all settled in. We have been spending the past few days getting him registered for school and day care, having visits with case workers, buying school clothes etc.
I have to say it has been a good week. He has even called us mom and dad a couple of times but it will take him some time to get comfortable saying it all of the time. He made a friend a few houses down and that has been really, really great for him and us! LOL! Play time for him is rest time for us! It can become quite tiring having to constantly stay after someone to brush their teeth or to stay on them do do this or do that, etc.
One of the issues that we have been having is sulking and pouting when he doesn't get his way. However, I see that as typical 7 yr old behavior that we will just have to get through. If any of you moms out there who read my blog have any suggestions for dealing with sulking, whining or pouting, please let me know. He can usually be redirected pretty easily but it can be tiresome.
