Why the Frown?

He recently received a small tablet - one that came with our new internet and home phone package with the new provider.  I have mixed feelings about it.  It can be used for educational purposes but at the same time, he can download games and watch videos whenever he wants to, which can be excessive.  

I downloaded an e-reader for him though so he can include reading in his use of the tablet.  He's now at the stage of being able to read quietly or reading to self as he calls it.  I love reading and it is my primary use of the my ipad.  I really want to pass on my love of reading to the Tatapilla and I know he does love reading.  

This was him last night reading one of the books in Narnia series.  We loved the movies and the books.  Plus it is a classic.  I'm instilling a love for classic as well.  He likes the Little Prince already.  Do you think he deserves a Joy Jewelers fireman necklace

Hmmm, I have been limiting buying toys.  We are being overrun by them but that's another story for another day.

First Day Excitement

My little Tatapilla is not little anymore, not just in size (and it’s another story).  He’s now in year 3.  How time flies. 

The night before, we tried to get him to bed early.  I was hoping for 8PM but apparently that was too ambitious.  It was around 9 or 10.  I can’t even remember now.  I was hoping for an early night for myself as I was quite shattered too. 

I was constantly checking up on him if he was asleep and on a few times, he was up.  I was told that he was very excited for the next day that he can’t sleep.  I woke up the next day and found him asleep in the lounge.  Apparently, he went there around midnight. 

He might be a bit tired on his first day but the report was it was an enjoyable day.  Did a lot of fun and reading (one of the few things he likes doing). 

Oh, he has the same teacher as last year which is really great and same friends - I am not sure if there's a musician's friend there.
