Teacher’s day. A day I used to look forward to when I was still teaching. A day you get too many cookies, cupcakes, red pens and an abundance of cards, photos and hugs. A day set aside to publicly thank the teachers for everything they’ve done. Teaching is mostly a thankless job… Except on this day.
So a day before teacher’s day, I decide it’ll be nice if Allie could “make” something for the hubs, who’s a teacher. So out came the poster paints and the drawing block. It starts simple enough: Cut the drawing block to size, to fit into the ziplock bag. Stuff the paper in, squirt a drops of paint all over the paper, snap the ziplock close. Find a nice spot in the house, and tape all four sides of the ziplock to the floor. There, done.
Now, let baby take over as you marvel at his/her quietly.
The paint got stuck on the bag!
And I’ve learnt too that drawing blocks aren’t sturdy and strong enough for such activities.. Some of the paint peeled off and I was left with some bald patches on the paper. Boo.
There. Allie’s first card to dad dad, looking kinda presentable. Heh.
Happy Teacher’s day!
