Friday Frolics – 15th December 2017

Welcome to Friday Frolics, the linky with the giggles. Friday Frolics is hosted by myself, Claire at Life, Love and Dirty Dishes, and Emma at Island Living 365. It’s the place to link up your funny posts and snort your tea whilst enjoying some others.

This is the last Friday Frolics before Christmas. Feel free to link up as many links as you like – this will be a bumper Christmas special. I’m hoping to see some festive funnies as Christmas is my favourite time of year. Thank you to everyone who has participated in Friday Frolics this year. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, and we hope to see you when we return on 12th January 2018.

 
 
I am looking forward to all the fun and frolics, but first for a couple of serious bits.

1. Make us laugh! Friday Frolics is all about the funny, so please no reviews, or how to make a finger puppet (unless, of course, they are hilarious).

Thank you to everyone who linked up last week. Hope to see some festive funnies over the next couple of weeks – Christmas and humour are two of my favourite things.

Ode to Bob (a PSA)

This is an important Public Service Announcement for all expectant parents: call your kids Bob. All of them. Whatever their gender. Bob. Trust me.

You will thank me when they get to their first Christmas in school and insist they are writing Christmas cards to their entire class*, despite their limited writing abilities and even more limited attention spans. Not to mention the not being able to remember the names of all the kids, and the being no use whatsoever on the correct spelling (for some names the options span the full gamut of English spelling, Irish spelling, American spelling, deliberately misspelt and accidentally misspelt). And those two kids whose names you really suspect (or hope) your child has misheard. Periwinkle? Are you sure??

‘To Bob, from Bob’ is just easier. Doesn’t even need the ‘to’ or ‘from’, really. Just ‘Bob’ at the top of the card and ‘Bob’ at the bottom. Or Bob scrawled across the middle.

Incidentally, I’m pretty sure To Bob, From Bob was in my four year old’s book bag the other week. Or perhaps it was Ode to Bob. Or just Bob. Something like that. I’m sure I remember writing an insightful comment in the reading record: ‘Sounded out and blended Bob really well. By page five, it might have been more of an educated guess that it probably said Bob. Again. But she displayed good recollection of Bob.’

‘I am Bob. Bob am I. Am I Bob? Bob I am.’ I think the reading scheme for EYFS was written by Yoda’s cousin (Bob).

 
 
*They will also, of course, be personally writing cards to their teachers; the headteacher; the class next to theirs; the after school club; some kid’s mother (they can’t remember who that kid or his mother is, but she must have a card); a random lady unconnected to the school, who happened to be passing by the gates this morning; five dinner ladies; four teaching assistants; three classmates’ siblings; two school inspectors and a partridge in a pear tree.
