This should have been posted yesterday (Sunday) but I was too tired!
Dd had a friend round and we did sticking, with variable success. Sarah had brought pom poms to make pom pom animals, but the craft glue that we had just kind of absorbed into the pom pom and didn’t really stick desperately well. I asked on MPlist and found out about eva glue, so that’ll be another item for our list for hobbycraft tomorrow!
Dp and I had another long talk about home ed last night, I think we differ slightly in details of approach, but not really in principles. I’ve ordered the sonlight catalog so that we can have a look at curriculum ordered stuff – I find it incredibly difficult to get up every day and try to think of something to do with dd – and possibly because of her being to nursery she does rather expect to have something laid on. I thought if we could stack up a pile of half hour activities then I could just dole them out as and when, trying for something vaguely educational (in the able to use as evidence if ever required by an LEA kind of way) every day.
Oh, and nearly forgot. Dd is currently terrified of pretty much all insects, to the extent that she wouldn’t come out of her bedroom yesterday because there was a moth on the wall above the door. So dp got a big glass jar (my teabag jar! Humph.) and caught the moth (which turned out to be a butterfly) so that dd could have a look at it up close and see that it was rather more scared of her than she was of it. I don’t like insects in jars any more than I like animals in captivity (one of the reasons I’m vegetarian) but in this instance it seemed an acceptable evil and the butterfly was released after about five minutes with dd a lot happier about it all.
Still terrified of the dead spider in the downstairs loo though…
