Re: Basically it's Tuesday

Time for bed for me.

Tomorrow is going to be horrible. I have to stop doing all this baking. No one here helps me out with anything except for the eating.

I have so many dishes to do it's just nuts. I have work in the morning and then when I get home I'll be to one helping with homework and then everyone will be wondering what I'm making for dinner.

Such fun!

Oh well. I cant fix any of it now...and it's too late to do the dishes too.

everyone!

Her name is Zyaire, and this is Detroit. Your guess is as good as mine. I suppose it could also be a boy, but usually here it is a girls' name.

I am home. I ran around quickly and picked up, laid out clothes for MH and me for tomorrow. Got dinner ready. Waiting on the other two to eat. TACOS yum!

Tonight will be quiet. The Voice and just hanging with my two favorite people!

Soooore.
Meatballs went over well again. I am sad that I didn't make enough rice for the leftovers though.

So no more info than that, eh? I'd be worried that it might be a boy! I would probably go with a Todd Parr book (since they tend to be multicultural and gender neutral) or maybe look into Robert Munsch's "Wait and See" or " We Share Everything."

Munsch has a lot of great characters in his books. Lots and lots of multiculturalism if you choose the right story. (And I am not even really a big Munsch fan).

Re: Basically it's Tuesday

Ok, I went back and checked the tag. Zyaire is a girl, I am not crazy. I have a an extra copy of Heidi, Dr. Doolittle, and Charlotte's web because I buy classics from the dollar bins at Target and forget what we already have, but I was worried they were all too advanced for 6yo. Here 6yo usually means kindergarten, and here they don't expect you to read books independently in kindergarten, just sight words.

Re: Basically it's Tuesday

And now I have read up on the Leapfrog "standalone" toys. Most of them do require a computer that you can download an app to. And they are really aimed at preschoolers. Fork. That makes this hard, like Jess said the $40 cap really limits what you can buy. For that I can get a Tag and a book to go with, or maybe the learning to write bundle, or a map. And then if they don't have a computer at home they can't use it. If the kid was 4 I would totally do the toys instead of Tag, but at 6 they could still be young enough for the toys but they could also be way too advanced for it.
