My dads coming over soon to have coffee with me and to visit. The kids have a half day today (12 noon dismissal). It is parent teacher conferences. Both my kids are doing really well as far as their grades go and behavior so I am not worried.

So nice that you get to talk with your Dad over coffee! I am sure your parent-teacher conferences will go really well. I am amazed our son earned a B.S. in Economics and an MBA in finance/marketing since I used to dread those parent-teacher conferences since his grades were not what they should have been. Grew up to be a smart man though, so all is well.

My children are so much smarter then I was. They get way better grades then I do. My daughter got highest honors. She is in 6th grade. She has a 94.4 average so far this 3rd quarter. My son got very good marks as well. If his was graded the same he would probably have gotten honor roll.

I have one sister but she nor my mother drinks coffee. I started drinking it about 5 years ago. I can tell you with all the sugar and stuff I put in over the years it has effected my health. I wish I had never started drinking it but I was so tired all the time. I have had two mugs of coffee today. I love it so much so I hate when I run out but I only like to have just that much a day or I won't sleep well and will feel to jittery.

@shaggin Same here. Now, I only limit it to 3 mugs a day. I need it since I work at night. For days that I'm not working, one mug is enough.

@rina110383 That makes sense. On days that I have a nap I only drink one mug. It isn't very often anymore that I take naps. I am trying to be active online until the end of the school year because then I won't be on much at all during the summer.

Enjoy your bonding time with your dad. :) I'm really not that close with my dad and so we really don't spend time together. Treasure moment like that. :) Congrats on being a good parent. :)

My father and I did not get a long at all when I was a kid. I was closer to my mother. When I got older and moved out on my own I started getting along with my father better then my mom. It is still that way now. I don't really go out of my way to see people. I tend to keep to myself most of the time so although they live right across the street I do not see them as much as people expect.

@shaggin I am also really not that close to my neighbor. I rarely go outside to mingle with them. I guess I prefer to stay at home or with school friends. :) I guess there will be a time that I will be close to my dad. Hahaha. :)

@JMAndres My cousins moved in next door last summer. I don't really know them well but their son is a year older then my son and a grade above him in school. They get along well and he comes over sometimes to play video games with my son.

Nope my children were at school when he came over to have coffee with me and visit. He stayed for around an hour maybe. This post was short because he walked in while I was writing it. I wasn't sure when I started writing it what time he was coming.

I cannot wait until their last report card to see what their final grade is for the year. My daughter is hoping to make highest honest for the 4th quarter as well. We will have so much fun this summer. I hope to see my dad again soon and maybe we can do coffee again :)

That's good. It's really rewarding for a mother to have kids who are doing well. Enjoy your coffee date with your dad!

I really am thankful that they are so smart and doing so well and behaving at school. My sons only problem right now is that he talks to much at school. I was the exact same way I talked nonstop. I just could not stop even when I would get in trouble and get detention. I would talk through detention too lol.

@shaggin I guess that's totally fine! I remember my primary school teachers always told my parents that I am a good girl, results or behaviors are good, but I talked too much. I think it's totally fine, as I am still a good person and I am still doing well.

good for you because you still have your father. I act as my son's father too when he has problems.

@shaggin and it is also better for you because you still have both your parents. now, my son always shares his cup of coffee with me, which I prepare for breakfast. it is good to talk about some personal stuff over a cup of coffee.

We did have a nice visit. I haven't seen him much lately. I haven't really left my house though. I am not up to really talking to anyone right now. My father is having a lot of problems in his life too it seems like everyone around me is suffering right now.
