Today we read The Napping House by Audrey Wood. She is a wonderful author and writes wonderfully silly stories and her husband illustrates them with equally wonderful pictures. That's where the wonderful-ness ended. After we read the story and talked about our own napping houses and I modeled (painfully slow) how to use watercolors, SOME OF MY CHILDREN DECIDED TO PAINT THEIR TONGUES.
(Insert my inner-voice screaming a phrase that sounds like, "ARE YOU TRUCKING KIDDING ME?!")
I told them they ate poison.
The well-behaved children that acted like sheep and painted their tongues shrunk in horror. They might be at home now wondering if they will survive the night.
The punks that instigated the experiment are still showing off their blue and green tongues to anyone who will pay attention.
Tomorrow is the last day of Intersession. Thank trucking goodness.
