    Default wanna hear something INSANE??! (ot)

    You know how we run a daycare from home...So Wayne comes up with the idea to make June "outer space month" for our theme...I will add a pic of our display tonight...
    So we've been teaching mainly the big kids the planets a little bit (the 3 and 4 year olds) and whether they catch on or not is fine since they learn all that much later in school...
    So our oldest gets in within 2 days and can name them back, then my almost 4 year old cousin....
    What floored us the first time was when C who JUST turned 3 got them on the 3rd day (because we only go over them twice a day quickly)...we made a huge fuss...the next day our 2 and a half year old T (though is very baby-ish) goes "my turn!" She had always run to play while we taught the older kids and appeared to not be listening...but I wanted to let her have a turn...she starts naming them and gets them ALL right. So we all freaked out and I even videotaped it for her mom...
    Well, we have a one and a half year old baby as well (the little sister to C)....the next day I'm changing her diaper and she goes "pluto". We both giggled and I said "do you want your turn to tell us your planets?"... "yeth" she says LOL...So I say "Mercury......." (thinking she was going to shadow everything I said)...nope...she takes off and in the tinyiest little baby voice goes "Venith, Erf, Moz, Poopiter (LOL)...My jaw was on the floor....I go "Uranus..." and she goes "Nuptune.....PLUTOOOOOooo!" Can you freaking believe that??!!! And the real icing on the cake was that her mom's family was all over at their house that night for C's birthday...(someone else picked the girls up that day and I hadn't had a chance to tell their parents what their baby had done)...so they get C to show off her planets and they all freaked out how much she had learned....and then baby E jumped right in and shocked everyone there too! LOL!

    Holy smokes!! That's awesome!!! I would be so proud of my kids! You and Wayne do such a great job with the kids. Those parents are so lucky to have found you.

    Charys, No, she can't come to Texas to watch Kayson... she's coming to Virginia Beach!! (she just doesn't know it yet!)

    oh i forgot to add her "Thaturn" (saturn) lol. See? The kids know them better than us! lol

    Thanks girlies...and unfortunately I'm staying in Canada (or moving to New Zealand one day) but if you ever want to move we should have room. I plan on getting my Early Childhood Ed and expanding this daycare at some point.
