What kids hear
What my kid hears versus what I as the parent hears. Now that statement could go many ways as many parents know. But this is just one story.
So my kid has been doing this project thing in class and I thougth cool its a class project as in it stays in class. they had to choose an animal, research said animal and then build an animal out of clay. Cool. Right?
So she comes home from school yesterday and hands me her binder so I can look thru it and sign it and theres a paper in there. She has to create a habitat for the animal she has chosen.
And boy is she excited.
So what she hears is ‘a cool project where I can draw and paint and create’
But what I hear is ‘Crap I’m going to burn myself a thousand times again with the hot glue gun.’
which I have
you see she chose a dog. She loves dogs.
So the habitat that she would need would be a backyard right?
but where do dogs lay down in the back yard???
a dog house.
And how did I decide to build this dog house??? with popsicle sticks.
held together by HOT GLUE!
and I’ve only been working on this thing today and I have burned every single finger. And half the time I am not even sure how it happened and sometimes its because my kids bump into me and my and touches the hot spot or the hot glue.
Either way. My kid hears yay project and I hear ouch. Crap. Damn. Shit. Well you know the kind of vulgar that slips out of your mouth when you get hurt. its like stubbing your toe.
But I am that type of mom. I am going to keep burning myself anyway. Until it gets done.
Yeah……I might need some positive vibes haha. When I was a kid I always had my mom help because she was artistic and I’m not. But now I can’t ask her to do it because she’ll be like… nope its your turn. haha. And this is the 2nd project in less than 2 months. >.<
