Quote of the day March 12 2009

Through the eyes of a preschooler.....
This ad appears very large on a bus shelter near our house Ben was very interested in this poster:

He said to me:
"Who is that guy Mummy? Is he scary? Is he also a vacuum cleaner?"
Pretty good explanation for the hoses if you ask me!

Quote of the day Early March 2009

Here's a quote of the day from last week:

Ben: "Mummy, can you please cook me a squirrel?"
Me: "Excuse me?"
Ben: "Can you pick up a squirrel that is running around on the lawn and cook him in a pan so I can eat him?"
Me: "Um, no."
Ben: "Well then I guess I'll just have to eat him straight off the lawn. "

(Keep in mind that the only meat this boy ever eats is bacon.)

Monkey perceive, monkey play.....

For reasons you may read about here, I've been obsessed with the mail lately.
I keep checking the mail box.
I wonder aloud when the mail will come.
Being a perceptive child Ben has picked up on this, and is also becoming a little obsessed with the mail. He asking questions about the mail, mail carriers, even mail bags.
So to distract myself and to make him happy, I have made Ben a mail bag to carry around (complete with a cow flap), letters to post, and a mail box.
It's been keeping him very entertained. It's also a good way to learn our letters, by reading the addresses on the envelopes aloud together.
