Worms and Words

11 Sep

Certain kid turned DOUBLE DIGITS today. Enjoyed her pressies at the brekkie table (big thrill was being treated to a poached egg… I ask you! Is it a roller-coaster of giddy consumerist excess in this household – or what?)

And then it was over to studying the pressies. She was sitting and a-reading the packaging on her new ‘Wiggly Worm World’  (a kit that helps a child to set up a cross-section of a foot of soil so that they can observe an earthworm’s behaviour.)

And then she goes;

“Oh! That is absolutely outrageous! ‘Create your own garden for your worms to EXPLODE’!  Why would I want to EXPLODE worms? That is SO sick!”

And Dad goes;

“Sweetie. Slow down on your reading. It says ‘for your worms to ***EXPLORE***’

Oh the joys of a sharp mind, with dyslexia….that loves to skip the words…

The next Big Worry. Are we breeding worms in order to feed our ferocious budgie?
