Already? Five? My baby?
His teacher was telling me during pick-up today how much he's changed over the course of the school year.
"He soaks everything up and is just beginning to blossom." As if I was worried.
Seriously? He may not know the difference between a q and a p, but make no mistake - this kid has mad skills.
Example: He'll sit for an hour wrapping packages ("packages" meaning old books, broken happy meal toys or smashed granola bars) elevating the items from garbage into gifts. A gift for who? I have no idea. But when I let him know that it's done already
and to stop wasting all my tape, the protests begin:
"Not yet - I just need one more thing to make it prettier. 'Cuz it can be better, Mom, it can..."Is there a preschool unit that teaches "Late Night Dresser Drawer Embellishment"? Give this kid an A+.
Three circles in a row...because even a four-year-old knows that odd numbers are more visually pleasing.
And that layering adds interest.
