Despite the studies outlining that homework wasn’t needed for primary school kids and the many friends who lamented the stress it brought, I still saw the positives. I liked being able to see the progress that his reading and writing was making throughout the year. However those feelings have slowly changed.
Today Mr 6 becomes Mr 7! I realised last week that I didn’t actually do an interview with him last year to see how his answers had changed. It’s been great to see how his interests change and that he still has similar best friends.

A colouring in book is a staple of everyone’s childhood. I’m sure we all have memories of time spent filling pages with rainbows of colour. We all had our own ways of colouring. Some spent extra time making sure every spot was filled. While others scribbled as fast as they could.
This week the prompt for I must confess is ‘I don’t understand…’. I was going to link up an old post I had written about same sex marriage and the people who oppose it. However something else has been bumping around in my mind for a little while now. Then last week Near As Dammit’s post pushed it to the forefront. The thing that has me perplexed at the moment is the bubble that is school.Jessie’s post shared the story of her son and how he was punished for retaliating after being repeatedly punched by a much larger boy. The education department has stated that they have a zero tolerance policy to bullying, and that this includes physical violence. On the surface this seems like a good idea.
Mr 6 loves tacos more than any other food. In fact he recently said that I was 2 trillion the best because I made him tacos for dinner. I also love tacos because they are super easy to make. I buy the stand n stuff soft tacos (or taco boats as we like to call them) because they are easier for Mr 6 to handle.
