I Can…

6 has had a bit of a rough patch at school, which has dented his confidence a bit.

We picked our own homework (a ‘wildcard’) this week to try and cheer him up/boost his confidence, I printed pictures of things he’s been up to and he wrote out the captions.

The title is ‘I’m a brave Explorer! I can…’

The content:

  • Explore a castle
  • Cross a river
  • Jump
  • Fly
  • Follow a book through the forest
  • Meet old friends and new
  • Listen, defend, watch and battle
  • Be brave
  • Explore
  • Enjoy the sunshine
  • Be with my family
  • Climb
  • Play
  • Dream

I seem to have something in my eye….

Random stuff my kid said

I got into the car after a meeting yesterday. Husband and children are already in the car.

Me “I’m hungry, let’s go home and eat”
Child “you could eat a… ”
Me “person!”
Child “oh, ok. Daddy, I’m gonna saw your head off there’s chicken in your head”
Me “erm… But I’m vegetarian!”
Child “but daddy’s head is full of vegetarian chicken, I just need a real saw to cut it off”
Me “well, we haven’t got one, so nevermind, I think I’ll have pasta”
Child “there’s one in the kitchen, I’ll use it to cut daddy’s head off and we can have vegetarian chicken”

So… Firstly, is my (vegetarian) 3 year old turning into a cannibal? Or a criminal mastermind(based on his reasoning skills)?

Also, how does he know where the tools are?!?!
