For 25 years I worked in an office. (Some of you might know this so hang in a minute…) After a healthy dose of downsizing, I decided I’d go to college (natural progression, right?) After graduating, I went into teaching (a life long dream, and I’m getting to my point, I swear!)
I taught Developmental Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and First Grade. So after retiring (here it comes) I knew I couldn’t take on a part time gig without having the words, “FUN” and “KIDS” and “PLAY” involved. So now I ‘sit’ a little genius, and on no school day, his bro.
Sometimes, girls (and their charges) just wanna have fu-un. 😉
My buddy wanted to be a robot for the day. Fun!
Sometimes we make it up as we go along
We made Lego names for an Instagram Challenge I entered. More fun.
And, although this is a moving Odd Ball, still, fun, Fun, FUN!
My friend and I invite you to visit with Cee for more on Odd Ball pix. Click on the icon below.
Talk about unaware! I was just that – unaware that I had any candid photo. Just goes to show you. You never know what you have til you take a good, hard look.
These first two photos are pictures of my little charge. I watch this cutie five days a week, and if you’re familiar with my blog, you know that he is not shy when it comes to the camera. But, as luck would have it, I got him in his unawares. 😉
This boy is all about learning, and planets and how the human body works, and he soaks it up like a sponge. Someday, I’ll share a video of him teaching me about space. Precious!
This gentleman just looked very interesting to me. I practically never take candid shots, but I do remember doing this one. I was being very sneaky, and I felt guilty as hell! Just call me Double Oh Doofus. (I shot this in B&W, hence, the B&W.)
This photo was taken in the same diner as the gentlemen above. She was the hostess and that hair do, in my eyes, made her the hostess with the mostess. I LOVE THAT DO! Color and all.
Well, that’s it for my covert operations. Slip on over to Cee’s and spy with your little eye, a little more on the
clueless unaware. Click on the icon below…
His mom says he’s a goof. I say he’s an adorable odd ball.
And what’s more appropriate for an Odd Ball Challenge than a five year old odd ball of fire surrounded by colorful plastic balls in a giant ball pit.
Now, ladies and gentlemen, find waldo…
That one was a breeze.
OK. That wasn’t all that tough either. Still, a little odd. Wouldn’t ya say?

A fabulous time of year for colorful…
Chrisrmas is coming…
Santa was behind the colors. The REAL Santa!
Kids need to color more today! 🙂
My new hobby. Zentangle. I do the tangling and my friend, Gen, does the coloring.
Stop off at Ailsa’s to see more on her challenge – Colorful. Click on the lips. 😉
HAVE A GREAT WEEK.
AND KEEP SMILING…
I missed the boat on Cee’s “BIG” black and white challenge, so I thought I’d jump on the “small” band wagon.
Birds looking small – dwarfed by their surroundings on Brigantine Beach.
Small boy looking smaller, also dwarfed by his surroundings in Atlantic City.
Lego motorcycles, small, because they just are.
The smallest of my owl collection (See RestlessJo? I wasn’t kidding.)
The doctor is in, but the small Mr. Potato Head glasses are out!

Thanks for visiting. 🙂
When you work (hang out) with a four year old, 5 days a week, you are bound to run into a little splash of color. And you get to play – A LOT!
I spotted the Bella balloon and couldn’t resist, since that was the alternate name I chose for one of Cee’s Share Your World questions this week.
And the last is a plug for The Garden State – why I don’t know since our taxes exceed most other states. Maybe if I advertise NJ enough, our illustrious governor will cut back a little. Ah. No. Probably not.
Visit Ailsa at where’s my backpack for a look at some multicolored masterpieces.
