Another day with 14 smiley faces! Wow! Not that I expect 14 every day but I am quite impressed.
Griffin mentioned that his teacher complimented him on how well he wrote his name on his work. Usually his handwriting is very sloppy because he does it so quickly. I guess he took this to heart because as soon as we got home he insisted on doing both pages of his weekly homework. Yep, you heard me, I said BOTH pages! Normally we do a page a day so it is more manageable for him each day and so I don’t go bananas. But today, he wanted to do both!
He told me he wanted to write his name “nice and neat” for his teacher. Normally it’s so sloppy and I don’t typically battle him to fix it. Today, not only did he write it on both sheets, usually it’s just one, he wrote his first AND last name BEAUTIFULLY!! And, his writing throughout the work was so neat!
Also, he sat down and did the work while I fed Liam. What? I didn’t have to sit with him the entire time to make sure he stayed on task? You heard it here people! He only asked for help on words he didn’t know or when he needed clarity on a question. This has never happened! My son did homework on his own and NEATLY!
It was so pleasant and needless to say I had tears in my eyes the whole time! Nice and neat…I will take it!
