Bar Buddies- Big Daddy and Kenley enjoying a bedtime snack.
We had Open House at B’s school tonight- which meant the girls got to spend some time with their Sassy while we met Britton’s first grade teacher. While sitting at B’s desk tonight, in her little chair I looked around her classroom.
1st Grade is such an interesting time. There is play dough on one shelf, the solar system and microscope on another shelf, and across the room a ‘reading corner’ including some of the classics. B now has homework every night, spelling test every Thursday. In addition to piano practice each day, piano lessons on Thursdays and after school drama camp on Thursday afternoons.
I conscientiously try to balance work, childhood and activities so that B has enough hours in the day to be a kid. We made a list this afternoon, with the girls input, of what constitutes an ‘Automatic time out’. I even drew a picture of an automatic toilet (B has always been scared of automatic toilets) so K could recognize the list. I am trying this angle, with the line of thought that B may abide being that she help to ‘create’ the rules. What little dumplings they are!
