Malachi has a lot of homework this year. He’s in third grade, I know he has I-STEP to pass and I-READ to pass….but geez! I’m pretty much hating homework anymore people, and I was an elementary school teacher! This kid needs time to play outside and pretend and be imaginative. We had an outrageously gorgeous day last week(after winter-like weather), I let my kids play outside for hours and had Malachi do his homework after dinner. He did get some sleep that night, I promise. But what the heck, America has it all wrong. ALL WRONG! Kids need time to play, it will make them BETTER at learning. Stop giving them so much instructional time, stop giving them so much busy work and let them figure out the world by play and imagination. Ok….soap box over….for now.
And my little Laney is into everything….EVERYTHING….especially when I’m trying to make dinner. This is half of what she got into while I was preoccupied.
I go to bed tired, they keep me busy. But I swear I’m not as exhausted as when I was taking care of three boys 3 years old and under….now that was pure exhaustion. So what will it be like when they are teenagers????
