Merry Christmas everyone!
Also, I think I have some catch up to do either with telling M more stories or working on her listening comprehension, because this is the conversation we keep having:
Me: Knock, knock.
Her: Who is it?
Me: The big bad wolf! Little pig, little pig, let me in.
Her (cheerfully): Okay!
Then the "door" swings open and she lets me in. Tomorrow's lesson: The three little pigs, natural selection and when to open the door.
But for today, it's Christmas! And even the big bad wolf should get invited in sometimes.
Okay, we're on our way out to a big Chinese meal for dinner! Merry Christmas!
When my son was a little bit younger, he used to worry about monsters in his room at night. So we came up with a system for what to do if he found a monster. First, he'd ask if it was a nice monster, or a scary monster. If it was a nice monster, it got to come and have pizza with us. If it was a scary monster, he would bonk it on the head.ReplyDelete
...And who knows? Maybe the Big Bad Wolf could have been a perfectly good neighbor if he'd only been introduced to sushi.
That's a great way to deal with monsters! My dad told me when I was a kid that most monsters are extremely ticklish, so that was always the threat for monsters around my house.Delete
later she started telling me that before I came in I would need to eat "some French" so that I wouldn't eat anyone who lived in the house.
