Tomorrow will mark the end of our first full week of 2nd grade! Like most mommies, this week has been all about getting back into the swing of things. Homework, packing lunches, new bus stop times, 08972359862395 forms to fill out.... yep, school is back in session! and every day after school Alaina sits down with her snack and tells me about the daily happenings from a 6yr. olds perspective.
Today's conversation went something like this:
Alaina: Mom, Katie wants to be corn.
me: Really? Like for a Halloween costume?
Alaina: No, she just wants to be corn.
me: Well, that's unique.
Alaina: and I want to be rain, in a storm, because lightning and thunder are cool.
me: Rain would be a good choice.
Alaina: and it smells nice too. Oh, and Chase wants to be a panda. - -
Someday, I'm going to crate a little book of all our random conversations. The chronicles of Alaina. I think it would be a fun idea to record everything and be able to look back on our daily ramblings. Do you ever save or scrapbook some of the stories your children tell?
I'll be back tomorrow to choose a winner for the photo canvas!
