I think my favorite part is the slurring lisp from his missing bottom tooth..."oh mother dear, we shadly fear"...that and his stern re-enactment of mother kitten. Goodness, I would not want to be on the tail end of that tongue lashing. My kid is TOUGH STUFF. Until he rolls over at the end. Reminds me of drum lessons...reading music with Mr. Canaan, as serious as can be...then all of a sudden, Finn is upside-down, on his head saying "wanna see something silly?"
Finn has been learning nursery rhymes all week at school and came home with a booklet he was VERY proud of. He was fairly bursting at the seams last friday when he presented me with his literary masterpiece...
...and many other nursery rhymes were included.
Not wasting any time, he quickly began indoctrinating Calvin. He taught him all of the nursery rhymes starting with Jack Be Nimble, Jack be Quick...
When I asked Calvin how his recitations of the nursery rhymes were going he said, "I can't renember my verse". He thought Finn was teaching him more bible verses from AWANA. Ha.
Well, Finn is a pretty strict instructor, and so Calvin can now recite Humpty Dumpty and a few others. Finn even made Calvin draw exact pictures of every nursery rhyme, just like the ones he drew in class. "Draw the circle just like this one Calvin..."
Finn cannot help it. Teaching is in his blood. Should make for an interesting year.
