Princess Lessons

We went to Staples, my all time favorite store, to buy some packing tape and big fat markers. I can't just walk out of Staples without wandering around. You see, I have this office supply addiction. I can't help myself. So we're wandering around and we found a box of chalk...a simple 99 cent box of chalk. Who knew this would lead to so much fun?!

Princess decided she wanted to play school. She was the teacher and I was the student. (I have no idea where she gets this stuff!) She gave me math problems. I got them all right!! Then she taught me about patterns.


I learned the order of things.

Then we played an architect game. Princess drew things step by step and I was to copy her. She wants to be an architect when she grows up. She drew a house first, then this tall building.

I copied her house, but at some point I turned my paper and my roof ended up on the side of the house. I had no idea I did this until Princess asked me why I put the roof there.
I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants.

Violet has been playing school a lot lately too. Maybe the government puts something in the water to encourage conformity.

Very cute. Love your house.

That's awesome! Hehehe, on the house...hilarious.

And I'm with you on the office supply addiction. Pens, paper, post-its, folders, markers, paperclips...I LOVE THEM ALL!

Hubby used to raid his office's supply cupboard and bring me home all kinds of goodies. He said I always appreciated it more than flowers. :P

ha ha ha, that's cute!

I love chalk. I used to buy big (cheap) tubs of it and let the kids have at the driveway in nice weather. Then we'd take pics of all the masterpieces.

And um....re: your comment/my blog? Cancun?

Whatever.

Lucky.

Frau, she knows what school is, but I don't know that she knows about homework. Hmmmm...

Kelly, I think you may be on to something. ;)

SMT...heh, heh, heh.

Zayna, it seems there are quite a few of us office supply addicted people. Maybe we should form a support group.

Sheila, Princess has me take photos of sidewalk chalk masterpieces and everything else. She is totally digging the "inside" chalk. Oh and about Cancun...;)
