The Hobbled Wife sends this pic of the Dude engaging in a little act of school-avoidance this morning. The Dude really wanted to sleep in the bathroom last night. In fact, he fell asleep on the bathroom floor. He had set up an elaborate "bed" of blankets and pillows on the floor, plugged in a CD player to listen to a book on tape - and fell soundly asleep. I moved him back to his bed around 1:30 a.m.
He awoke this morning angry that he had been moved and quickly reestablished his claim on the bathroom. What better way to spend those quiet moments before breakfast than lounging in the bathtub with one of his home-school* books?
*We have a variety of teaching aids - most purchased last year during our "school troubles" in an effort to provide the Dude more academic challenges. He often takes them out and "home schools" himself.
