“And Then There Were Three…”
(Last day with only three children before their older brother comes home!)
The rambling part…
Dx has been learning about flags at school and came home the other day proud he knew Wales was part of the United Kingdom. On the way to school I asked him if her remembered what 4 countries were in the United Kingdom…
(there was then a bit of clue giving and he managed to remember Scotland)
Me: And whats the last one? Can you remember? It’s across the sea…..
Dx: Ooh I know! I remember!!… Is it Bracknell?
It has been interesting this week to see the dynamics change between the children with their “leader” away. The space in the playroom has helped too – meaning Gx and Dx are able to play in there. I think Gx still enjoys his “pretend play” but shies away from it when his older brother is home in case it seems childish – he has played so nicely in there with little brother Dx this week though.
And tonight Gx amazed me with a times-table game he made for Lx on Powerpoint (I didn’t even know he knew how to use it – and I certainly couldn’t have done what he did!). What amazed me most though was how kind he was creating a game to help her with her schoolwork. He has always been a really kind and generous boy but this term (hormones?) he has been more moody and grumpy than usual. it has been lovely to see the “old” Gx return this week.
There was a lot of love between them all this evening 😀
