Yup... he's got homework in pre-school.
This week's assignment is: "What do you want to be when you grow up?"
So far he's done all his own work. I've helped him make his letters and helped him find stickers, pictures and such for previous projects like "what's my favorite animal" but I need advice on this one.
His answer? He wants to be a bumble bee when he grows up.
I personally think it's adorable. Were it up to me I'd help him find pictures of a bumble bee and help him write it out and be done.
However... I wonder if I SHOULD guide him a bit for the sake of the assignment. Perhaps a qualifier like "something a HUMAN would do for a job"
But frankly? He's 4. I don't want him to have to think about what kind of job he'd like to have when he grows up if he doesn't naturally head in that direction.
So.... do I help him focus in on a human job and hence a more acceptable answer
do I let him run with bumble bee.
