Kooky children

Lj- An explorer. Afraid of nothing. Has a love of bags, shoes, dress up and phones! I thought if I zipped my knitting bag up the yarn inside would be safe...apparently not!

MJ- I can't believe I considered keeping him at home to home school him! A child who wanted me to play with him all of the time, in a unfamiliar place would cling to my legs, wouldn't play dress up and didn't want to be taught numbers or letters has  become a different child since he has started school. Of course there will always be negatives involved, a bit more back chat, more toilet talk and more desire to play fighting games but in my eyes the good is out weighing the bad. He is so much more confident, he loves dress up, plays in his room on his own for long stretches and actually enjoys sharing his new phonics with me.
