Preschool Opinion...

My son, D was pestering me the other morning to "take him somewhere". Which means, the park, the store or anywhere because home was "boring". I told him I was busy, we would go out later and to settle down and watch some cartoon on PBS.

To which I received this reply, "Aww mom, I don't want to watch lame educational programs".

"Lame?" Great, a 5 year old who calls things, "lame". I thought stuff like "lame" didn't come up until they were older. (And when did he learn the word "educational"?) I guess those shows don't cut it after you watch the stuff on Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and the History Channel. This is a kid who enjoys watching the evening news. I don't even watch the evening news. I remember being entertained by Sesame Street at his age. When did 5 become 15?

If he thinks life is "lame" now, wait until he hits the big K, the 'Garden, you know, K-I-N-D-E-R-G-A-R-D-E-N.

I hear you! We have a 3 year old who L-O-V-E-S broccoli, The History Channel, and anything technical.

The 2 year old's main ambition of late is to learn to walk up the walls like Spiderman...

Kids. Never a dull moment!

Things sure have changed though, since WE were that age.

Great blog- I found you through Grey Horse Matters. (She is an awesome lady!)

I don't mind being called "LAME" by my kids . . . I have plenty of practice.

I'd sure rather be "lame" than have LAME horses. . . . know what I mean?

I thought lame was a sore footed horse......now it's jargon for a five year old. Oh my the world is spinning way too fast.
