"Pause yourself"

Hi All,

Today my mum was doing something and I wanted her to wait so I could do it too, so I said to her "Mum, please pause yourself." She thought that was funny.

That's all for now,

What I'm up to

Hi All,

I've been a very busy boy!

If you're wondering, this is what my week looks like:

Monday - Mum's Group
Tuesday - Swimming Lesson and Kinder
Wednesday - Play Date with my friend Lydia
Thursday - MOPS (every fortnight) or an outing like the zoo or the play centre
Friday - Sporteka and Kinder

I love going to Kinder. This week I start going to full sessions - 2 hours and 2.5 hours. 3 of my friends from Mum's Group go to Kinder with me so I already have some friends. I told mum that some of the other kids names are Meth, Death and Cad.

I'm doing well at Swimming Lessons too. I told my mum that I love Claire, my teacher. I don't really like floating on my back but I'll do it if Claire asks me really nicely.

I have all new kids in my Sporteka class this year as the other kids graduated to school. I think I'm one of the older kids now so I'll have to show the other kids how to do things. Next week we're doing basketball.

Last week I went to the dentist for the very first time. I sat on mum's lap while the dentist looked at my teeth. He told me I had 20 teeth. I told him that, "Actually I have 12." Obviously not a very good dentist. He did say that my teeth were lovely and clean though.

Gotta go now (to Mum's group if you've checked the schedule above...)

Hi All,

Lately I've been talking a lot about seeds and planting things. I found an apricot seed in Daylesford and asked mum and dad if I could plant it. They said yes, so I planted it in the garden. I was very disappointed when I checked the next day and there was no apricot tree.

Because of this interest in growing things, we spent the afternoon in the garden planting seeds and seedlings and plants.

I was very helpful (except I kept stepping on the seedlings - whoops).

Mum says it is my job to water the plants every day.

That's all for now,

My first day at Kinder

Hi All,

Today was my first day at Kinder.

I got my backpack ready with mum. I have to make sure I have a change of clothes and a hat. Later when I go for longer I'll have to make sure I have yummy snacks as well.

Then mum and dad took me to kinder. I showed my dad where I put my backpack and the little cubby hole for my hat. I also showed him the little toilet and my very own hand towel.

When I went to kinder orientation last week, I needed to go the toilet. The teacher said that little boys stand up when they do wees. Why has nobody ever told me this????!!!! I have always sat down to do my wees (people must think I am so lazy!). So I stood up and did my wee. Now every time I have needed to do a wee I've said to myself, "Teacher says boys stand up" so I've done all my wees standing up. I've learnt so much from kinder already!!

That's all for now,

Bus Driver

Hi All,

Yesterday I decided I would use some boxes to make a bus.

I put my teddies in the box at the back and I was the bus driver in the front box. I also put on my bus driver hat.

I got a book to be my street directory (in case I got lost).

I got very upset when mum took my photo. It's not right to distract a bus driver like that.

That's all for now,

Swimming Lesson

Hi All,

Today I went to my first ever swimming lesson!

I was very excited. When I got the pool I asked mum whether I could wee in the pool and make the water go green. She said no and promptly took me to the toilet - party pooper.

I had a good time at my swimming lesson. My teacher's name is Claire. I went in the water with 4 other boys. Two boys were very good swimmers and 2 were very scared. I was kind of right in the middle. I wasn't scared but I don't really know how to swim yet. I got to practise floating on my back, swimming with a noodle and putting my face in the water.

I think I'll go back again next week.

That's all for now,
