Transition (Kindergarden in the US) does not start until Thursday, but in a show of solidarity, school pride, and thinly veiled envy, Schatz got dressed up to take M to school this morning. "Why is her uniform dirty already?" you may be wondering. Because Schatz has school spirit and is known to get into her FULL SCHOOL UNIFORM to grocery shop, check the mail box, or walk the dog. That's how she rolls.
This box was used to move to Australia and to store Christmas presents. It has been a "drive-in car" while watching Aladdin, a snail shell, and an art project. Today Roger is teaching Schatz the art of building an Acme trap...complete with tropical fish camouflauge...
Schatz is a sassy six year old. She is a handful. "Schatz" (Shot-zee) is a German endearment like honey or sweetie.
Early on I decided that I had two options with this child. I could get frustrated with her when she is sassy or bossy; or I could recognize the humor in the situation, grab a pen, and write it down. I chose the latter. Yes, this is real. No, this is not an exaggeration.
In the spirit of fair parenting, I've started peppering this blog with the funny things that my older daughter says and does. You can't make this stuff up!
