Tori is having a difficult time adjusting to the back-to-school routine. She goes to bed crying and wakes up crying, never wanting to go to bed. She throws fits throughout the evening and early in the morning. This morning, for example, she woke up, found out Christian was already downstairs and broke out bawling. She assumed Christian had the TV on the channel he wanted, when, in fact, Christian was on the iPad and Huts had turned the channel to what Tori wanted. She got into trouble, and the next time something did not go her way, she took it in stride. She wanted to move her booster seat to the middle, couldn’t and said nothing. That girl! I can’t wait for BTS night to see if Tori is avoiding fits in class.

Unlike her brother, Tori was gung-ho for her room to be repainted. She wanted pink and purple. I threw some teal in there to make things a little less over the top. So, a teal ceiling dropped onto the wall, blended into purple, blended into pink. It’s bright, it’s bold, it’s so girlie, so Tori! And, it works better with all of Tori’s choices.

Then, this morning, Tori has another meltdown at latchkey. She was all excited about being there, but within a few minutes of me signing the sheet, she was weepy. Miss Lynn saw and started trying to distract Miss Tori Bud. I am sure Tori was fine within 10 minutes or so. Christian seemed a little miffed too, but I am sure he will be fine as well.

Tori had another sleepover this weekend with her friend, Shaylee. Shaylee’s mom called me on Friday night to schedule a playdate on Saturday, which turned into a sleepover. The girls drove the cats crazy and stayed up until 1 in the morning. They finally sacked out and got up at 11 on Sunday. Shaylee stayed a couple more hours before her mom picked her up to go school shopping. We were left with a really tired Tori, who was still dragging butt on Tuesday morning. No doubt she will be tired again after Eli’s birthday celebration tonight.
