BoopaLoop has pre-school three days a week for 3 hours. On the other two days, she hangs out with me. We do some errands. We do some cleaning. We do some playing. We rarely do some teaching.
She is too similar to me in personality, so we get too easily distracted with being silly to dedicate a lot of time to serious learning. However, that does not mean I don't make the odd attempt here or there. Today was such an attempt.
I pulled out an old pre-school book that once belong to LittleMan.
Me - "Okay honey, this is a maze. Do you know what a maze is?"
BoopaLoop - Shakes her head no.
Me - "Okay, you need to find a way to get from the rabbit to the carrot at the end."
BoopaLoop - Starts drawing a straight line from the rabbit to the carrot going through all the walls.
Me - "Yeah, that's the idea, but you have to stay in the walls."
BoopaLoop - Stops drawing to listen to me.
Me - "See the walls? You have to stay in the walls and find a way to the carrot."
BoopaLoop - Starts drawing a straight line to the carrot again - through the walls.
Me - "Honey..."
BoopaLoop - Interrupts me, "I'm flying to the carrot."
