Aizay has conquered his fears of public performance. He was tested in front of a room full of people and totally kept his cool!

A lesson for the workplace from 2 kids under 6

Aizay spends 10 minutes setting up a 3 dimensional cardboard gameboard. He goes to the bathroom. Coraline comes into the room singing stomping and dancing. She marches right over the gameboard, flattening it. She runs off to the bathroom.

Coraline: Aizay, I knocked your game.

Aizay comes back into the room with Coraline. He silently stares at the game pieces.

Coraline: I broke it
Aizay: No, Coraline, it's not broken. We can put it back together.
Coraline: I'll help you.
Aizay: OK.

In the workworld, Aizay would have been rebuked for leaving his project unsupervised, Coraline would not have taken responsibility for her actions, a committee would be put in place to review the incident and ultimately, one or both parties would be reassigned so that they don't have to work together again.

Darth Vader terrorized Coraline!

He made her tremble with fear & cling to me. Don't visit Riverside, IA-it's the most wretched hive of scum & villainy

Lost tooth

We should leave a note for the tooth fairy that Aizay has a second loose tooth, so that she can calculate the most efficient return path.  Her supply chain manager will thank us.

The 'book nook' may seem like a brilliant idea but...

...Coraline disapproves. This playhouse made of books makes her angry cause she doesn't understand why she can't read them. She spent some time trying to pick up & open the books and asking me to read them.
