How did I get so lucky? Rhayn is the best kid ever. She is so sweet and helpful. There are just times that I sweel with love and pride for how great she is. I am so afraid of how she will be as a teenager, and how Bug will be, but I guess I should really enjoy this time. It will be over soon, and I will have a kindergartener!
There are times when I am frustrated and take it out on her. Why? I am only human and she is an "easy target" but I love her so much, and I adore this "why?" stage. It can be irritating, and I can't always explain the answer, but it really reminds me to look at the world in new and different ways.
"How they made our world?"
"Oh Rhaynnie, I just don't even know how to start that one."
"How they made dirt?"
"Well dirt is rocks broken into smaller particles."
"Oh." Pause for reflection "how they made rocks"
"um, well there are different kinds of rocks, and they were formed in different ways"
Hey- LOOK! UNSCHOOLING! I was reading about that movement, and since Rhayn will only be in kindergarten for half days, that leaves me afternoons to shape her little brain more, and I was looking into homeschooling in the afternoons, as in teaching her to read. But then I started looking into Unschooling, and I have been doing that since she was born. If she is interested in it, we totally envelope it into our daily lives. I am excited to find out what she learns at school, but excited to still have time with her.
