Nathan Updates


Here's whats up with Nathan lately

Nathan Loves:
1. Watching youtube toy reviews.  These are like watching paint dry to me, but he just loves them.  
2. Playing Super Mario Brothers.  Lately he has really started to like playing the wii and specifically Super Mario Brothers. 
3. Stories without pictures.  He have read several chapter books together, our favorites were the "Zappato Power" books.  He also likes stories that we make up and tell him. 
4. Switch and Go Dinos.  He has slowly been collecting these car and dino combination toys and he loves them.  

Nathan Hates:
1. School.  Yep, I said it.  It has nothing to do with the school he attends 2 days a week.  He just hates being forced to listen and to learn.   Daniel picks him up from pre-kindergarten and he tells Daniel, "That was my last day of school ever." 
2. Vegetables.  He hates vegetables and is beginning to catch onto my "grind vegetables up into everything" ways.  
3. Homeschool.  Apparently structured learning in general is a dislike.  I have to bribe him with Power Wheel time to get him to finish his work.  I started going through home school Kindergarten material with him.  But he tells me that he "already knows everything so it's super boring."

The dog debate

On our drive to school today: 
Nathan: can we get a dog?
Me: no
Nathan:  when I grow up and have my own house and my own kids in going to wait until everyone is asleep and get them a puppy and a kitty. And put them in a box under the Christmas tree. 
Me: that sounds like a great plan 
Elijah: *bursts into tears* I JUST REALLY WANT A PUPPY!

Thumb sucker

Malachi looked particularly cute today. And I think he's officially a thumb sucker. I can't really stop him from sucking his thumb and he really loves it. He also still hates any kind of pacifier. 

Jump jump jump

Malachi tried out the jump a roo this week. He fell in love! Now he is happiest standing up while he is awake.
