Me and 4 other friends (Joanna, Haley, Nikki, and Carrie) are doing home preschool this year. Crazy, maybe. Money saving, definitely. We each paid $100 for curriculum for the entire year. I paid twice that a month for Halle’s preschool! We all just rotate teaching, so we teach one week out of every 5. Today was at Joanna’s house and she said everyone did pretty good, but they needed lots of breaks. Josh was very excited about an alligator they made by gluing macaroni to a paper and then painting it green. But he really wanted to eat the macaroni, and was so confused when I kept telling him that under no circumstance was he to eat the paint covered noodles.
Another funny Josh story–he is such a little PARROT. Anyone listening to him talk can tell exactly how I discipline him. Our conversation:
Me: Josh, please go clean your room
Josh: Mom, if you say those words to me again you are going to go to time-out. OK?
Me: Josh, you can’t talk to mommy like that
Josh: says it again
Me: If you choose to say that again you will lose your cartoons
Josh: Mom, if you make me clean my room you will lose the remote.
Oh my heavens! It sounds so sassy, but I don’t think he really means it that way. And today he told me if I took off his Nike shirt that I would be in Major Trouble. It’s so hard not to laugh at him.
