I know I've been slacking with the Preschool Blog posts... I know because one of my dear sisters asked me about them just last night! Well! I thought to myself, Someone is actually reading them! Whaddayaknow!
I admitted to her somewhat shamefacedly that I had not just been slacking on the blog front, but on the preschool front entirely. It's easy to get excited when your child asks, "What are we going to learn about today, Mom?" but when you actually get down to doing something with the child, all they want to do is watch the latest favorite movie.
This week is The Week of the Young Child, some sort of national observance. This week, Audrey will learn all about herself. To start the week off right, for both myself and her, I took a page from a good friend of mine. Monique Duke is one of the most talented photographers I have ever known and this idea was an inspiration for me. I've been wanting to do it ever since she wrote about it, but wasn't able to find the ideal time to focus just on my girl.
The idea was to call out emotions to her and snap away at whatever expression she gave me. I was worried that she wouldn't understand some of the emotions I was going to ask her to show me, but I went ahead and, with a little explanation, she stole the show.
