Midnight Nit Repellent

And before you ask, no we have not got nits! Well, we haven’t been anywhere, not met anyone and the children have certainly not rubbed heads with any of their schoolmates. It would seem that a bottle of lice repellent was left in one of the draws in their bedroom.

Tara took it upon herself to de-“lice the three little ones as well as herself. She claimed later that it was because her head was a bit itchy. Amritsar fended her off. Good for her!

So showers were had ahead of breakfast this morning. All except for Amritsar that is.

This week has shown no end of breakdowns where Thor is concerned. I almost expelled him from homeschooling this morning, but I restrained myself. I will leave that course of action for another day!

I also barred them from using the living room coffee table (again) as I am just too narked off with picking up fallen pencils and scraps of paper. Again and again and again and again!

Some advice from a lovely fellow blogger Macey. ‘Find a place to homeschool and stick with it.’ So I decided to stay with the kitchen table option for all of their homeschooling dilemmas.

  1. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I was literally about to jump in on the Thor god of war thing but I see Macey’s on it. You’ve been told, Andi! Happy weekend all.

  2. Good advice from Macey. I’d been doing phonics with small boy in my office and everything else in the kitchen. Today, took laptop to kitchen for phonics and he did loads better, attitude and attention as well as sounding out words. Definitely going to stick with that arrangement.

  3. Andi, I am so glad there are no lice as that would be a nightmare.
    I remember when I was teaching at a school almost the whole class was infested!
    My kuddos to you for being a good teacher, I always so enjoy your videos. πŸ™‚

    Oh, we saw Nolan yesterday on his birthday, we all sat out in the front driveway on lawn chairs, with lots of distance between us, Nolan and Rose were so happy to us!
    But when we got ready to leave, it was very sad , all we could do was give everyone an air hug and Rose cried!

    Wishing all of you a wonderful day! πŸ™‚

    1. Oh, poor Rose, understanding all of this social distancing must be do hard for her. 😟 I am so glad you had the get together on the lawn. I guessed it would be a very sad parting for you though Margie.
      Thank you on the complement on my video editing. It’s all pretty spontaneous, so not at all difficult!

      Yes, a whole class with the dratted nit. You poor thing! Cry or laugh on reflection – hey?!?! πŸ€”πŸ™‚

      1. Rose is eight and it’s all so difficult for her.
        She is very social and misses her friends from school and her nanny and papa.
        It seems easier for Nolan as as long as he has his mommy and daddy and Rose,he seems quite happy! (I am glad about that.)

  4. Sooooo, question how much alone time did you leave them because it sounds like they bacame a hairstylist in 10 min lmbo
    Also, one thing my daughter loves is this thing called Wood Art. They sell them here in our Walmart stores but it comes with different wood pieces with the art already drawn on them that the kids color in. May be a great idea for Art class.

    Or there is always the Pie game that I used to play with my cousins. Someone plays the wolf, someone plays the pie man. You set a route with a start and stop point and everyone else are the pies. The object of the game is to not get caught by ghe wolf. The pie people have to whisper to the pie man what type of pie they will be. Then the wolf or it person has to come to the pie man and say I want to buy a blank type of pie. Whoever said they were that kind of pie has to get ready to run the race and make it back to the pie man without getting caught. And you keep going until someone gets caught and then they become the wolf and the wolf turns into a pie and the wolf then gets to whisper to the pie man what kind of pie they will be. And so on and so on. Oh and the wolf has to pay the pie man by slapping the piemans hand with the age of each pie. Then it’s off they go
    So you pick a starting point and create a route and it’s excercise with a twist of imagination. Is this a known game. No only to me and my cousins because we made it up in Oklahoma…hahahaha have fun!

      1. Thor is not an easy god to play with. You named your son after him.
        Maybe I should shut up now. πŸ˜‰


    1. I only just saw the comment on The God Thor! I have to respond outside the worldpress app. It’s loosing all kinds of stuff atm. Yes, Son of Odin. He is a heavy burden to bare! But I believe he grows up good! That’s all we can hope for! πŸ™‚

      1. If anyone can pull it off, it’s you and John. We’re sure of that. Britt and I will cheer you on and throw some unwanted advice over once in a while. πŸ˜‰
