    Default Made me chuckle!

    Sat at the breakfast table this morning. Mindee(4) comments about my DD going to school as she walks out the door to" X is going to school because she has to do homework"
    Then when hubby goes out " X is going to work" I reply yes that's right- he's got busy jobs to do today!
    She then looks at me and says " you don't do anything do you" - lol.
    Had to chuckle to myself. If only

    To be honest today I have

    Driven cars around the room
    Slid down a slide
    Built moon sand castles
    Crunched cereal with my bear feet just to see what it felt like
    Built a farm
    Played in the rain
    Fed chickens
    Stoped and chilled for 30 minutes just becUse a horse came by.
    And I'm sure lots more that I've forgotten.

    Some days like today are awesome and it really does feel like I just play all day lol

    Ha ha, apparently this is the American phrase (as LO used to live there) embarrassingly I have no idea of the English word! It is on the park, 2 seats it spins and bounces - super fun!

    do you now what though? i think you must be doing an amazing job if the children you look after dont realise you are observing and writing diaries etc. You must be a very fun person to be around so well done x i only feel a bit miffed if an adult says it to me but take it as massive praise if its from a mindee x
