What we learned today at school

Conversation during Andrew's bedtime routine:

Andrew: "If you are in a store, and have to go to the bathroom, you can ask someone who works there: 'Where is the bathroom?' and they will tell you. If you ask someone who doesn't work there, they won't know where the bathroom is."

Daddy: "That's right Andrew, where did you learn that?"

Andrew: "At school, from my friends." came the reply.

Daddy: "What are your friends' names?"

Andrew: "Alex, Della, Chloe, Dora and Boots".

Daddy thinks he may be watching a little bit of TV when he's not at school.

Christmas projects

What do you give to your kids' preschool teachers for Christmas? Well, when I dropped Andrew off at preschool last week, and saw all the teachers shivering with mittens on, I had an answer!

These are Fetching fingerless gloves, made in Patons SWS yarn (70% wool, 30% soy), and they feel so soft on your skin. It takes less than a ball to make one pair. I like them so much I might not be able to give them away!

Modification: I went down a needle size because I knit loosely.
