Daddee Yah!

A working Daddee learning to cope in a big big world

With a lack of toys and an abundance of imagination, Caitlin has had to improvise and make pretend toys to spend (some of) her days. Yes I am a pathetic parent letting my kid endure this.

Her “skills” in improvising seems to have extended into her homework.

See, they are teaching her “long” vowels, like school, food, or, feel, reel, and using a different coloured pencil for these vowels.

You guessed it. In her homework she had decided to first write the letters of the same pencil, and then literally fill in the blanks with the coloured pencil for the vowels.

I guess it gets the job done, I just hope that she will still end up learning the actual word and not finding more efficient ways to complete her writing!

No, I didn’t tell Hot Mummee about this… She may well get Caitlin to redo the whole thing!

Hot Mummee came home with the kids yesterday evening. She was the one bringing them home from Grandma’s since I opted to head straight home to use the common room’s treadmill (as you know I am always complaining about my weight, now I am trying to do something. Trying)

Went downstairs to help “herd” them upstairs, and spotted his again crew cut.

It looks better on him now, now that he’s a little grown, and a lot more cheeky too!

Will come back with some photos!

In the meantime, this photo was taken when the kids were fooling around on the loveseat beanbag… Remind you of a Rolling Stones magazine cover of one of the Jackson sisters? Okay okay I was reminded of it- I am a guy after all okay!
