A certain someone is being a little NON-cooperative at pre-k these days. I know it’s hard to imagine that a face as sweet as this….
….would be uncooperative.
He has only been in pre-k a few months. At age 3 they don’t do a whole lot of “pushing” when it comes to participating. They simply ask the child if they would like to “color” or “craft” and if the child says “NO”…they do not make them.
Apparently, my child says “NO”. Everyday.
He NEVER wants to participate in any group activities. He would rather play. Not only that, but they are suppose to be learning to write their name. Everyday he brings home a sheet of paper where it looks like he has tried to trace his name. Well, Mr. P Man has decided that since he doesn’t know how to trace his name (nor does he want to)…he will just ask “Char-wee” to do it for him. Charlie is apparently another child in his class.
The teacher said “Parker is asking his classmates to do his homework”.
I decided to have a talk with him about it (even though he is 3 and will probably not know a lick about what I am saying). I told him that he needed to be doing his own work and not asking his “fwends” at school to do it for him.
But, as I was on my soap box, just about to really get in to why it’s not good to ask others to do your work, hubby quickly ruined my disciplinary talk. He decided to chime in and say:
“He’s smart! He’s just outsourcing!”
Lovely. Real lovely daddy. Apparently, his “outsourcing” is a learned behavior from daddy.
I know daddy is REALLY good at “outsourcing” the laundry to mommy.
