Lord help me I can't do third grade homework! Normally I am the most patient person in the world but between the hours of 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. I am some crazed lunatic (as in suffering loss of emotional control). Thank goodness for the Internet....what did our parents do??? I really don't think they were as involved as we have to be but since I've had a child I am slowing losing brain cells and can't remember.
Although all of the above is true, I hate to say it but I am learning new things. For instance tonight Lydia had to write sentences from her vocabulary words. One of the words is "records" as in the best performance in a competition. I want to tell her examples but that will make it easy (it is so tempting) and she needs to make up her own.
Stay with me for a minute I am going somewhere with this. I had her look up the word "records" (again thank you Internet). She noticed a crazy picture from the Guinness Book of World Records. I can't believe I never told her about these? We looked up everything from the fastest time to carve a pumpkin ~ 24.03 seconds, to a boy balancing 16 spoons on his face. We are learning good stuff tonight!!
I thought you all would get a kick out of what she decided upon....
"In the book of world records the smallest teddy bear is 0.17 inches."
Just for the record he is fully jointed with hand sewn eyes, nose and mouth. Can you see him below the coin??
I'm going back to my happy place now.
