My kids came up with some gems this week. One boy told me (excuse the grammar problems – that’s one thing we work on): “Did you know that there’s plates under the earth?” Someone’s parents have been talking about geology, but forgot to clarify about the dinnerware.
Another was while we were drawing nativity scenes. I show them a very basic method to follow and then they can do what they want. My youngest boy was putting an angel in the sky and said, “I’m making a zombie.”
“……. there are no zombies in the nativity story.” That’s something I never thought I’d have to say.
My last is about this particular group’s eating style. Again, this is something I’m working on. I have several children who eat cuties/mandarin oranges like apples. No peeling of the segments – just peeling then biting into the side. What?? I also have a boy who eats his trail mix feedbag-style: holding a handful up to his face and munching until it’s gone. I redirected him later to use his finger and take smaller bites, but he kept giving me sidelong glances and shoveling it in.
*sigh* Happy Friday.
Haha! I like the idea of feedbag-style eating. Several things come to mind that I’d like to eat like that…
