This week we got a phone call from my two year old niece.
Okay, well Grandma did the dialing for her,
but at her request.
Little Missy got on the phone and asked in her wee sweet voice,
“Aunty Tracey, can Ethie and Bray come play blocks with me today?”
(She speaks in full understandable sentences, well most of them.)
Yes it was a school day but who can say no to such a tender request.
So into the car we jumped for the hour long drive over
(We think she’s worth it).
Little Missy was delighted!
First she had them play Lego with her.
She desperately wants to be big like them.
Then she took them out into Grandad’s yard for some adventures.
They played, “Follow the Leader”
(She’s always the leader).
Then she had them running in circles and counting out loud
(Her current version goes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12).
Her imagination is really blossoming at the moment
so she had the boys collecting leaves and twigs to make a fire.
(She’s been read to a lot so she knows, even a two, how to begin such a task.)
(Later in the day I had to rescue her from a pretend turtle that had hold of her leg and wouldn’t let go!)
Then Grandad took them on an adventure down through the property
This is one of the things I love about homeschooling:
There is time for family.
What a loss it would be for everyone if my little men were at school.
(Oh, and yes, little Missy tried to convince Grandma to call us again the next day.
Good try little Missy.)
