Carbokid Turns Three Tomorrow!
About 3 years 7 months actually if you count his time in the womb. 7 months instead of 9 months because I think by the 2nd month of pregnancy the foetus will have developed a consciousness - I may be wrong. He's developed by leaps and bounds and he's taken to books in a big way. Carbowoman and I have drilled into him a set of routines such as oral hygiene, washing his hands and feet when he reaches home, relieving himself at the toilet bowl, sleeping without diapers, doing homework, bedtime reading, phonics, and preliminary writing. Presently he's learning up the days in the week and arts and craft. Since he stopped going to school, most of the educational activites were self constructed at home with Carbowoman diligently cutting out the alphabets and shapes for him to glue and match - a low end substitute to a art class. Plenty of effort required but I think no less effective. We've been to enough pre-schools to know some of the activities that can be copied at home.
We have no plans for Carbokid tomorrow but we'll be taking him out for a good lunch and ice-cream and let him pick a couple of books at Borders. So here's to you Carbokid, tomorrow's YOUR DAY! May you be healthy and happy little fella! We love you!
