It was a busy few days for this one.
First day of Kindergarten AND a birthday.
Everything about the birthday was his absolute favourite. It was heavy on the dinosaurs, which I’m not entirely convinced I believe ever existed, but which I now know an astonishing amount about. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw Carl’s watermelon art on display :)
School falls in the category of “ok”. He can read chapter books and count to a million, but get him to sit in one place and write his letters, surrounded by other little people, and he is completely wiped by the end of the day. Twenty minutes at home seems to perk him back up though, which is a relief.
His big sister is pretty happy to have him at school, and has strict instructions to kick in the teeth of anyone who picks on him.
His little brother is…unclear on his feelings about the matter.
I’m not one for change, folks. All this growth is a bit too much for me.
Well I have some dinosaur convincing to do don’t I? Next coffee! :)
Love the food you do, and he looks super happy.

Personally, I love watching my kids grow up… Change can be hard but there is so much adventure awaiting. It’s neat seeing them learn new things.
My girl is 5 today and started school last week. Her little brother was utterly confused when she deserted him (although I secretly think he’s delighted to have some more attention all to himself).
P.S. I checked out your instagram… that watermelon is really cool. The rainbow bowls and cups made me smile and the peaches… I feel your pain.
Awww! He’s so sweet. Just like my nephew, Nethaneil, as the second oldest and a boy after his older sister. I think Kristopher would be my favourite if I got to know him:)
He is growing up so fast! They all are! The dinosaur watermelon is great. Kudos to Carl :)
