I spoke to G's teacher yesterday and she did know about the bathroom bullying incident from last week and it had been dealt with appropriately. We discussed his need for more self confidence and how best to tackle that.
She then informs me just how much of a delight my little man is... This I already know ;)
So yes, point one to a great start to Monday.
A and I proceed to the shops to get him a foot stool for the loo to assist his tiny body with toilet training. When we brought this home, he placed it a the loo himself and later on went and did his business. He was super proud of himself (as he is too little to climb up himself usually).
Headache comes on just before lunch. Pain killers do diddley squat so I spend the rest of the day in bed waiting for pick up time to roll around.
Minus one point.
A and I left home early to go see G receive his good behaviour award at school. We stop in at the office first to drop off some paperwork. I was ignored until the ladies had finished their conversation. Charming.
Minus one more point.
A and I go back up to the hall and wait at the back. I brought he camera, and was able to capture this...

After I took this photo Ande insists that he needs to use the loo. I figured we'd seen him get his award, and rather than disturb the assembly coming back in, we just left it at that. Found out after that G had received another award. This one was received in front of the whole assembly. I missed this one.

The whole afternoon at home the boys were FERAL. I so desperately needed respite but J was still at work.
Minus 5 points.
I made sausage pasta bake for dinner, and G and A ate all their dinner. A actually ate all his dinner and all of his second helping.

J gets home in a good mood and we have a family viewing of Mythbusters. Both boys snuggled in with Daddy. I love watching that.

Went to bed at a decent hour, and A slept through the night - in his own bed!!!
Add 10 points.
Monday's total: 25 points.
I'd say that over all that makes for a pretty good Monday.
