NZ Dare #43
here is my entry for the NZ Dare 43. Miss L was allowed to get out of the pram and venture onto the play ground at Western Springs. She didn't like the swing much.
This one is about DS and how his favourite colour is green because he pretends to be a praying mantis. All. the. time. If the green shirt is in the wash then it's a struggle to find something with green on it so he'll wear it without a fuss. I've explained about different coloured mantis (manti?) but it's not working.
We have great conversations about them -what they eat, drink, and how they smell. We censored the bit in the life cycle book about boy ones being eaten while mating though. He was most offended when Grandad squashed one with his shoe. "I saw his guts Mum!"
