Dad Attempted School



We have been a sick household this week.  First Dad got sick last weekend, then LittleBit had a really bad day on Monday and has spent the rest of this week recovering and being congested.  Monday night I started feeling bad and Tuesday night I pulled a muscle in my back coughing, yippee for me. 

My husband stayed home from work on Wednesday to hopefully get better himself and give me a day to get better.  I spent most of the day in bed with a heating pad.  Dad announced he and LittleBit were going to do some school,  so I told him where we were in math, science and mentioned the Viking boat we were going to build.  It seemed like enough for them to try, I overestimated.

A little later I heard Dad and LittleBit working on math. Dad was getting a little frustrated with LittleBit’s lack of effort.  I admit it I got tickled just a little, I have spent many a day where he is too tired, bored, etc to put in a complete effort and I know how Dad was feeling, I have been there.  I think is great Dad wanted to help out with school though and I have since been told by LittleBit, that he just not the same as I am, I am better at it.  GO MOM!

So for school time, Dad managed to do 2 pages of math, question my honesty on whether or not LittleBit can actually add with renaming(he can) plus they built the Viking ship, and read about Ugly Bugs.  They also did some “testing”  using different weight papers for paper airplanes.  Not a full school day by any means but a learning experience for all.  COOL DAD!



  1. Love the ship! I will be away at Relevant soon and I wonder if my hubby will continue with the lessons that week..hmmm...maybe he needs to take a page out of your book! lol...Have a great day!

  2. I both love it (and cringe) when Hubs does things with the kids. I mostly love it, but at the same time, I'm always waiting for them to "not know" something they really do know and get "the look." We also have very different learning styles and so very different teaching styles and so my kids look at him like "I have no idea what you're talking about." When he hears the way I taught it, he looks at me like "I have no idea what you're talking about." ;) It's always fun. =p

    I love the ship, too. =)
