So I got to do space school instead. Mommy and I made a rocket. We posted a picture of it – check it out.
I did the important parts like chewing the ribbon for the tail to make it curl and licking all the toilet paper off the toilet paper roll.
Then we drew a picture of Mars, the red planet. I colored myself red, too, so I would blend in when we got there. Did you know Mars has days of 24 hours like Earth?
After that we played that I disappeared in a black hole (aka peekaboo).
I wore a diaper just like the astronauts do.
I banged my head at least twice so I got to see stars. Then we put my plastic ice cube on my head so I could feel how cold Mars is. (Thank goodness we weren't trying out Mercury's temperatures.
We played ring-around-the-moon with my ring set and a ping pong ball. Then Daddy tried to help me moonwalk on the ping pong table, but I like mooncrawling much better.
Then Mommy and I put together a mnemonic so I could remember the eight planets in order. We used my picture dictionary to find words. Here's what we came up with: "Mouse visits elephant man. Jack-in-the-box sings under nest." I wanted to use "noon" instead of "nest," but Mommy said that didn't make sense. I don't think "nest" makes sense, either.
