Elijah lost his other bottom front tooth earlier today (I’ll have a picture up soon). He proudly come running downstairs and showed me. Now, what to do with the tooth since E doesn’t believe that a fairy would want his old teeth and I don’t ‘do’ the Tooth Fairy. Any ideas?
We’ve had some wonderful weather lately. It’s been nice to have all the windows open and to breathe ‘real’ air after the long Winter of stale air. Being able to go outside without coats and layers has been divine. This means I have to go make my garden bed ready for seeds and plants…I’m trying an adapted ‘lasagna compost’ for the garden bed this year.
We’ve acquired 3 new games for the DS. Garfield’s Nightmare, Hi! Hamtaro: Ham Ham Challenge and Lego Indiana Jones. I have enjoyed Lego IJ more than Lego Star Wars for some reason. Elijah REALLY likes Hamtaro, but anything that is bubbly, cute and Sanrio-esque makes him happy — I personally think the game is quite below him and was afraid it would be too boring, but the bubbliness of it all overrides the fact that there is NO challenge in the games. Garfield is a 3D platform game…is there much more to be said…I’m neither happy nor upset at the purchase, but it will probably go into the pile for trading or selling when we are done with it.
I recently remixed all of E’s sweats into fun mix-matchy pants and two tops all complete with huge pockets for stashing stuff. They make him happy and now I don’t have to look at boring old sweats everyday!
We got our tax return money and promptly registered for the Northeastern Unschooling Conference and finished paying off our bill for the Unschooling Cruise 2009 to Bermuda. We are excited and hoping to meet some really awesome people. That’s where our tax return money is going this year. I think next year, we are planning on going to California to Legoland and possibly staying and working for a week at Arcosanti before we end up at Legoland.
I’ve found myself overwhelmed with emails and discussion board topics relating to children and their eating and sleeping habits. I’ve already shared some on these topics here, but I’m forming some more in depth looks at why we fret so much about what our children are eating and when they are sleeping. Just let them eat and sleep as they need already…oh, I guess I can’t get away with just saying that…if only the rest of the world would accept that idea.
I think that’s it for right now. ha!
