Does Je$$ have too much time on her hands? Maybe. And am I cursed to look at everything through teacher goggles now? YES! Because I am counting this silliness as BOTH music and comedy. The child cracks me up!
Finally, an experiment! Modeling clay, surface tension, and thoughtful poses are all a part of science right now. Je$$ designed an experiment and documented her findings. BONUS LEARNING: wet modeling clay is VERY slimy.
“You fish it out”
“No! You get it!”
“Ew! Ew! Ew!”
She really does thrive in the kitchen. And I have been enjoying the pumpkin muffins, the cinnamon muffins, and all the other goodies she can make.
We are currently collecting expired postage with postmarks. Je$$ looks up the locations and pins them on a world map. If we do this all year, I wonder which continent will have the most pins? Which will have the least? BTW, the pin in south China represents one “Made in China” Nightmare Before Christmas cell phone cover purchased for next to nothing on Amazon.
