There's only one thing that's taken over this house, this week. It's been the main topic of conversation:
With one child starting his GCSE, and another in the middle of the stupid stats (that's what they should be called), the stress levels are through the roof..........mainly mine and Mr. Ojos.
Our middle boy, who I thought would be seriously struggling, is SO chilled! Every day he comes in,
I ask 'how do you think it went?'.
Every day is the same: 'Okay, I think, I answered the questions'.
I know I should be relieved, he's handling it extraordinarily well, but I'm just waiting for the fallout. I've learnt to expect the worst, and hope for the best!
Ajax isn't coping so well, with the stupid sats. He blew through the reading test: Proud parent boast, he's amongst the top in his year. However, he loves reading, it's his favourite thing to do, the rest, not so much.
Thankfully his teacher knows him incredibly well, so when he started to get overly anxious, during the one test, she put a stop to it. I really can't stress enough how wonderful it is, to have a teacher that truly understands your child, especially when your child has different needs.
We have a few weeks of this, then a bunch of other stuff going on, including prom, a Pink concert and a little holiday!
I should be free, around August!
What week sums up your week?
