All What Did You do This Summer? posts are primarily authored by the featured teacher, with editing services performed by your intrepid blog author.
This summer I had the joy of shedding my lab coat in favor of a Baby Bjorn infant carrier as I settled into my role as full-time Mr. Mom.
It was quite a serious change from being Mr. Burton: Physics Taskmaster to being Mr. Burton: Dr. Seuss Reader and Diaper Changer, but I feel I have successfully made the mental switch.
I spent each morning
conducting experiments on playing with my daughter. After studying REM sleep patterns in infants holding my sleeping daughter, I would continue my investigation into the correlation between food intake and activity level tenderly feed my darling little girl.
we would conduct experiments exploring the nature of static equilibrium for various center of gravity locations in infants I’d talk in a high-pitched voice, encouraging my rapidly growing daughter as she did her American Academy of Pediatrics recommended “tummy time.”
I then would take
the test subject my bright-eyed daughter for a stroll down one of the many lovely paths in or around Front Royal.
Finally, we would spend the afternoons studying advanced math…and reading Is Your Mama a Llama? or various Dr. Seuss books. According to the data collected, I think the summer was incredibly fun, and while I will miss spending all day every day with my little bundle of joy, I do look forward to meeting the new faces coming to Mountain Vista and seeing the returning faces for another awesome year of
running new experiments on the minds of some new adolescent test subjects traveling down the roads of physics and research.
