As you may have read in an earlier blog post, my son is obsessed with a stuffed manatee. This morning he had to teach him how to play Uno.
He’s been telling me he wants to bring “Hubert” to school. But there’s a rule that kids aren’t supposed to bring toys from home unless it’s for a specific project, event, etc. so I kept telling him no. But he kept insisting that Mrs. Collins said it was OK. I finally emailed his teacher today to ask her and, of course, Nash was telling the truth and she did say it was OK for him to bring it in. She thought it would be educational since some of the kids had never heard of a manatee. So tomorrow Hubert will be making a guest appearance at Nash’s school and, according to Nash, they are BOTH very excited!
I asked him what he was going to tell the class about manatees and here’s what he came up with.
Man, I love this kid.
