I've been lucky enough to gain some new readers this past month, thank you so much to all of you for visits here. Last year, I began "Baby E" post day, on Mondays, where I give our youngest, "Baby E," his space here on the blog. We call him Baby E, because he is the Baby Emperor, and we do all adore this youngest one. He's a good little brother, and a wonderful youngest son.
It's a grey and overcast day here in Wisconsin, it might rain later this afternoon - a perfect day, for a Baby E post. Here's hoping he makes you smile, and reminds you what it's like, to be a kid in the summer.
Happy Baby E/Monday Post Day!
Hi! It's me, Baby E, and it's finally summer.
I told my mom that I want to do a post on what kids want to do in the summer, because the wrong stuff happens to us.
This is my favorite thing to do:
|Me and my brothers having lunch outside|
I like to be in the backyard, playing in the stuff we have: like what my mom calls "the slip-n-die," and with our dragon water sprinkler, and with our water guns, and to be in our tent, and then have our mom bring us lunch outside. That is my favorite thing to.
When it's hot and sunny that is what I like to do.
But when it's cold outside, like today, I like it when my mom plans stuff. Like the museum, or the art museum, or the zoo, or a movie, or my favorite thing! Our "summer reading basket" shopping.
But on the cold days only.
I told her I only like "family outings" on cold days.
Not on summer days.
She told me she has to plan ahead and she can't plan the weather but I think she should just plan ahead to do our family outings on cold days only.
She also makes us do stuff: in the summer, we still have to read chapter books, and tell her about the book, we still have to work inside and outside of the house, we still have to do the family bike ride! and we still have to take classes.
My mom says these things are good, and I do like them after I start them. Right now, I am taking a "make your own instrument" class, soccer school, and "Outdoor Art Classroom."
Those classes turned out nice.
I do like to do other stuff. I do like to go places. But on nice days, I want to be home and play.
What I don't like to do in the summer, is take classes where they make you dress up like Old-Time Paper Boys and do plays:
Stuff like, where I don't get when my mom says, "This is good for you!"
She loves this picture. She is laughing right now. I am kinda getting mad but feel like laughing right now, too.
OK. Now I am laughing.
She says this is good because it's good memories and now I can say I was in a play.
My mom is crazy.
I love my mom.
Next week I can't wait to tell you about our "Summer Reading Basket" shopping.
It is so awesome!! And I want to give a card out for Barnes & Noble for your kids to use to start their Summer Reading Baskets and my mom says I can! I hope they buy the books I tell them, too.
P.S. I like to do my posts.
