#R2BC Bragging Mummy

Well, Thursday is here again, which means it's time to join in with the weekly Reason's to be Cheerful (R2BC) hosted by Mich over at Mummy From The Heart.

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

1. I had a wonderful birthday on Tuesday and I lost 2 and a half pounds at Slimming World despite DS having his birthday last week! (See Sunshine Skies Happy Heart)

2. The weather has been beautiful meaning walks in the sun and playing out with the kids and some beautiful sunsets.

3. Parents Evening yesterday and all 3 did me proud. DD1 (5) & DD2 (7 next week) still have IEP's (Individual Learning Plans) because of their speech and also because they need to learn to socialise better with their friends. DD2's teacher was full of praise and said that in the past few months, and especially since her operation (See Happy Patient and What A Difference A Year Can Make) she has become a different child. She is now a lot more outgoing and confident, her speech is still poor and she tends to like being with the teachers and helpers rather than playing with her peers, so she needs to work on those two things. DD1 needs to learn not to be such a tattle tail (snitch) and again to socialise with her peers more. Her teacher was full of praise for her work, she is doing really well with her reading, both in English and in Welsh, her maths are very good as is her writing and spelling and her drawing. She doesn't like P.E (takes after her mum then LOL). DS (9) had lots of praise as well, he is one of the best readers in the class and can always be counted on for reading aloud in Welsh or English and has participating in Assembly. His work is very neat and very good, although he is easily distracted. She did say she couldn't tell him off too much because he does do the work in the end, but he needs a lot of encouragement to do so. She did say his behaviour can be a problem sometimes because he doesn't like being told what to do and can rebel and sometimes for no reason at all he can seem to be against the whole class, but I mentioned that he has been complaining about the other children teasing him about his surname and calling him a Tank Engine. But all in all very good reports for all of them and I'm very proud of them!!!

4. Friday night I'm going out with my best buds for a meal to celebrate my birthday and I am so lucky to have such wonderful friends!!!

So now it's your turn. Take a moment and think of what things are making you cheerful this week. Too often we are stuck feeling down and it's nice to sit back and actually think of the positives for a change, the silver lining in the clouds, and then when you've done that join in with the linky and have a look to see what is making everyone else feel cheery as well.
