It’s Sunday morning and I have 2 of my 3 kids at home. My middle child was taken to the SkyZone Indoor Trampoline Park for an hour of jumping and bouncing excitement, and since he’s the one who plays school with our youngest, it means I have to find a way to convince my 9-year-old to do his homework and my 4-year-old to let him do his homework.
After some “discussions” or really “negotiations” my 9-year-old has finished his math homework for Spirit of Math and my 4-year-old has gone from playing with her toys, to sitting on me, to practicing piano and now to wandering the house looking lost.
At one point she sat beside me while I was typing and she was staring at the side of my head.
“Hi, what can I do for you?” I asked.
“You’re so Cool!” she replied. “You’re so cool, I can’t stop staring at you!”.
With that I have taken her to the basement to free her toys from the fort under the stairs, and set her off to set up her own area where she can play and have fun by herself while her brother and I dig into his social studies homework.
Anyone remember the dog from the TV show Frasier?
