I just had to share this with you all....
William, as some of you know has been using a potty/toilet for a long time now, but it only dawned on me this morning *embarrassed squirm* that even using the toilet is a Home Educating moment. Now please excuse me for the wording here...it is entirely his own and has to do with the way he categorises his animals/toys/food/drinks etc
It was pretty early this morning..about 7 I think, and he was sitting on the toilet doing a poo. He made a straining face and as he heard the noise below he said 'big poo' and this was closely followed by another noise and he said, 'baby poo'. I realised at that moment how amazing that is for a 2 and a half year old to know the size of the poo by the noise it makes as it hits the water below!!! He has been doing it for a long time but the whole science facts had escaped me until now!!!
And with that thought, I shall leave you in peace ;-)
