Well, Babyhead is out of school. We managed to make it the first week. I wasn’t as bad as I thought it could be, but worse than I had hoped. Podling still gets up at 7:30am so no too late sleeping for me! The pool here isn’t open yet, next week it will be. I look forward to
trying to get the little monkeys in the pool going swimming. Last year was a disaster going to the pool by myself, I hope this year I can manage.
I have let Babyhead have this week off, but I think we need to start him reading again so he doesn’t get out of the habit. Trying to think of new educational things to do over the summer. The school actually sent home ton of worksheets for the summer but I am not sure I want him to feel like he is in school.
Oh, we got new hermit crabs. I wanted something BH could actually interact with more so than the fish. Unfortunately, and typical of 6yr olds, he didn’t listen to our directions and got pinched. Lesson learned. I tried to explain that they are animals just like we are and that we seem to be giant monsters going to eat them. Of course they are going to pinch if you poke at them. Then he began to ask questions such as, “Will hermit crabs pinch birds? What else will they pinch?
Somehow this week we got on the topic of where babies come from. Actually he asks if all things lay eggs, so I have to say no, that sometimes eggs stay in a mom’s body and babies grow there. Then he asks if dogs lay eggs, cats lay eggs, etc. Thankfully so far he hasn’t asked anything else. Maybe I can be let off the hook for a little while longer…
