Last week, Charlotte declared that she wants to be a dentist when she grows up. What does a dentist do? "Say no juice and no candy, and brush your teeth." This morning at breakfast, Dr. Charlotte announced: "If your teeth fall out, you don't brush your teeth. It's bad." We usually reverse that statement, but her logic is still sound.
Mummy went out with the Coach House ladies again last night. Claire thought that was a Bad Choice, and she expressed her opinion with tears. Louise tried to help her calm down: "When I was three, I didn't want Mummy to leave, and I was upset. But I didn't cry!"
Louise enjoyed Kindergarten Registration, and she's getting excited about Big School. When it was time for the kids to go one way and the grown-ups to go the other, she grabbed neighbour Alex's hand and marched off to her new adventure. She enjoyed riding on the bus, where she chose to sit quietly next to a teacher. A few days later, she got frustrated when trying to zip up her coat. "Mummy, you do it!" We reminded her of the Cameron Park slogan, "GRIT." The T stands for TEN-acity - Cameron Park kids must try to do things themselves ten times before asking for help. Wanting to do things the Kindergarten way, Louise tried the zipper again. "It only took me three times!" she exclaimed. She also loves the Miss Bindergarten books about Kindergarten, and she's trying to "read" books using the first letter of words as mnemonic clues.
