Boring Thursday Just Saying

Well hello everyone on this somewhat sticky Thursday afternoon, this morning mum and I went to see nanna, we took Denni with us this was the first time we have taken Denni. She is only 3 and such a quiet little one not like her big sister Temika who is a right little chatter box. Nan was about the same sleeping mostly, saying most stuff we can't make out with the odd word here and there like “Ron” “Jo” and sometimes “Mavis” although I think when she says Mavis she is thinking of her sister not her daughter.

Well the boys and Sydney-May have gone back to school today when I picked up the boys I asked them if they had a good day who is their new teacher you know the usual stuff Blain said he doesn't go into a new class till Monday and Leo said he had a so so day, he has a male teacher but couldn't remember his name.

Last night when I was talking to mum about how I do not understand a child wanting to miss the first day of the school year, this is the day you find out your class and who your teacher is and when in high school you get your time table for either the term or the year. I think if you miss the first day you are kind of lost.

Speaking of mum made me remember she got a phone call on Tuesday telling her that Dawson would not be going back today he goes back tomorrow, Dawson was a bit worried he asked her is it just me or everyone in my class that goes back tomorrow. Mum reassured him that it would be all the class not just him, she is worried about how he is going to do at this new school as he doesn't handle change very well at all.

On Tuesday when we all went to mum & dad's for breakfast mum heard him telling Leo and Blain not to swear, you do not swear at that house and you do not swear around his little sister and cousin. Now when Dawson was little he went through a stage when he tried swearing but his nanna (my mum) told him it is rude and that her and pop do not use that type of language and neither should he. He would hear his mum and poppy Robert yelling and swearing at each other and thought it was normal, his nan & pop soon taught him that it is not normal and it's not polite to swear and he stopped didn't happen over night but after a few months of being told not to swear he got it. Yes he may still swear when he is talking to his mum or maybe school mates and that is fine as long as he knows not to do it around young children and older people.


This morning Natasha said she thought Dawson was a bit old for Lego, Dawson loves his Lego and it doesn't take him long to put them together, any way I tried to explain to Natasha that doing Lego is Dawson's hobby, some people read, some collect stuff Dawson does Lego. I am not sure if she got it.

  1. You are never too young or old for Lego.

  3. Leggo is wonderful for the young. Teaches
    co-ordinating skills, geometry skills, building skills - for God's sake foster young Dawson's interest in this sensible hobby.
    Certainly don't thwart this interest in the young boy. Far better doing leggo than sitting glued to a bloody TV watching thrash.

  4. I, also think that missing the first day of school would cause a student to be at a disadvantage.

    As for the Legos...no one is to old for Legos. Some of the kits are very complicated and adults work to get them built. Recently here in Kansas City there was a Lego competition and there were all age groups represented.

  5. Dear Jo Anne, how lucky you are to still have your Nana. My nana was in a nursing home too. She was 100 when she passed in 2014 but she had a good long life. Lego is great for all ages, and way better than computer games, it still gets pulled out at our place and the kids are teens. Have a good weekend. Karen

  6. Legos, well any kinds of blocks really, are something kids can play with for a long, long time because they can use their imaginations. And Legos have kits you can collect so teenagers and adults even collect them--like people collect trains. :)
    Hope they all get on well in the new classes.

    1. Yes Dawson may be 16 but he does enjoy putting his Legos together and has even taken some apart and create something different all together. He is not the type of boy who like to play sport or go hang out with friends, he does have school friends but he is like me in that he things most of the time why do I need to see them on the weekend I see enough of them at school

  7. I remember not wanting to go to school when I was a kid. I think part of me hoped that, if I didn't go, it wouldn't really happen.
    Yeah, that never worked.
    BTW, you get a mention at Penwasser Place. You lucky girl, you.

    1. Well I have just popped over to check your blog and left another comment. School for me was just a place I had to go to day in and day out, year in and year out

  8. Some kids never outgrow Lego, nothing wrong with it as far as I'm concerned.
