It's the end folks. August is here and do you know what that means? Silly hu? Of course you do. We're all mom's here, or dad's or grandma's, aunties, or baby sitters or teachers and with the exception of the teachers we are all rejoicing. Why's that? August signals the return to school!
Don't get me wrong. I love having my babies home and I loath the school year schedule, but....when my kids are at school and then have their activities after school. My house stays SO clean.
I got to talking with one of my friends the other day. Her first born is starting kindergartenen this year. Oh I remember that! It's so scary to watch your baby go into the big, big world of the unsecured playground. (I know that schools say they are secure, but chain link around the property doesn't count when it's my baby they are protecting. Lol) Anyhow, what do we do about the kindergarten check up? Or the Jr. High, or whatever reason we are fighting with our kids to get them to the Dr. We are taking them to some stranger who is gonna do "that" to them. You know......give them SHOTS!
I found the cutest link today. We all know Big Bird. We LOVE Big Bird. What's not to love about the big yellow guy. Well the geniuses behind Sesame Street have an interactive page on....you guessed it! Visiting the Dr. It gives you instructions and the activity. Lists which Sesame Street episode goes with the activity. Go to http://www.pbs.org/parents/sesame/activity_4206.html if I managed to post that right it should take you to the exact activity. The activity is geared for children ages 2-6 but frankly, I just made my 10 and 13 yr olds watch it and they loved it!
