last year, kenzie brought home her realistic baby for early childhood development. she took care of that baby from the time she got home friday afternoon, until she took it back to the classroom monday morning. scoring a 100% for the weekend.
this year, madison is taking the class and on friday, february 5th, she brought home her baby. a hispanic baby boy. who cried off and on from the time she got home from school until about 8:00 saturday morning when it let out a little chirp and turned off... for the rest of the weekend. we still took the baby with us everywhere. in the car to volleyball practice, to the family birthday breakfast. just in case it decided to turn back on. but, it never did. come to find out, it's battery had died.
she lucked out... we're pretty sure her teacher's not going to make her bring it home again. she received her grade of 89% because saturday at 3:00 in the morning, baby started crying and madi couldn't find the sensor (it should have been on her wrist but she couldn't put it on until after her practice saturday afternoon) to turn it off so it continued to cry for 5 minutes straight. (she finally found it under her blanket) after listening to all that crying, i think it's safe to say, the rest of us were a little happy about that battery dying.
now, the two weeks prior to madi getting the realistic baby, she had some practice with a five pound sack of flour baby. only she didn't really get much practice because we never saw that baby during those two weeks. she had her friends babysitting or it was hanging out in her locker. she did make sure to bring it to class though.
