So, now that Athena is 3years old, she is in school, Montessori school, there are certain things that are expected of her. One of these wonderful activities, that she will need to actively participate in is Show and Tell.
I asked the teacher about it and she said "she can bring in anything she wants, but it cannot be a toy". Ok, great. There are some parameters, but, nothing too daunting.
Please listen in to our conversation about what to bring in.......
Me- Babe, it's your turn for show and tell on friday. What do you want to bring in?
Athena- Bring in? To tell about?
Me- Yes, what do you want to bring in to your classroom to tell your friends about?
Athena- My train set. The one with the bridge.
Me- oh, sorry, love, it can't be a toy.
Athena- No, not a toy, my train set.
Me- Well, your train set is a toy, because you can play with it. So, what do you want to take in to school from your room?
Athena- My hippopotamus, Gloria.
Me- Well, that's a toy too.
Athena-I don't play with it, I sleep with it.
Me- ok, this is sorta hard to understand huh? Ok, what can you take in to your classroom that you don't play with, but would like to show your friends?
Athena- Ummmm. The "something I didn't understand"
Me- The what?
Athena- The "something I didn't understand"
Me- The outkast cd? What? we don't even have the outkast cd. what?
Athena- Momma! the owl cast!
Me- The owl cast, owl, cast? Omgosh....The Owl cast?
Me- Ummmmm. ok.
This, my friends is what my daughter wants to take into "show and tell" on friday.........
Yes, my belly cast.
I will have to turn off my cell phone and have Michael pick her up from school.
I soooooo wish she could take her train set.
