The Big One is not loving school this year. She says she is bored. It has only been a week and she does not adjust to new situations well, so I'm taking that with a grain of salt. Last night, she started in with the "I don't want to go to school tomorrow" whining. I hate that she doesn't like it, but it is kind of necessary. And I know that given another week or two she will love her new class. I needed something that would make her look forward to going to school. Something she would like to do. I can only bribe with slushies so many times so I tried to think of something free and that she could do AT school. Solution? Make her a spy!!!! You see, today is music day. The Big One has no earthly idea what her music teacher's name is. I know. I asked her every single day last week. So her secret spy assignment is to find out her music teachers name and report back to headquarters. She can't tell anyone she's a spy and she decided that she can't just ask the lady her name. She is really amused with this project, and truth be told, so am I! I hope it goes well. I'm already thinking up more assignments!
