Truth be told
The little one has been given a project for first grade. It is to make a Diorama of one of the "Frog and Toad" stories.
When I got back from Austin Thursday night , the first thing she told me was "Finally, I also have a project!"
What that translated to is "Daddy, you have a project for me!"
After hearing her go on and on about this I asked Jr. "Didn't we do the exact same project three years ago when you were in first grade?! Remember buying silly putty in different colors and making frog and toad and you made a table, bed etc. with it and painted the whole shoe box"
Jr. says "yes and it is probably still in the garage!"
In a fit of laziness blurted out "why can't we just reuse that diorama?" and left it at that.
Friday evening comes and the little one tells me "I asked my teacher today if I can bring the same diorama my sister did three years ago and guess what?"
He said "NO!"
That was embarrassing.. Now I have to go face her teacher who probably is appalled by my "reuse" concept!
Daddy Narayanan is growing too old for Dioramas and is kind of getting bored of going through same projects with a 3 year deja vu cycle.
