This summer I promised myself that we would do better with science. I will do science! I will do science! I will do science!
I don’t know what it is about the science projects and experiments, I just put them off until I skip them entirely. I am not a science fan and would rather do any other subject…….but in the interest of making sure that the kids do not turn out like me, I have tried to re-prioritize and move science up a notch, or two….
So what did I decide to do? DELEGATE! I sweet-talked the hubby into doing some science things with the kids. I took a deep breath and let go and allowed someone else to take over. And he did science his way………and it was amazing!
He dubbed Thursday night as science night and he grabbed the Usborne book, glanced at it for 2 seconds, threw it on the floor, and ad-libbed the rest of the way. Not how I function, but the kids loved it and they even learned some things along the way. He even cleaned up the mess. How’s that for perfect? He can sub for me anytime!
