Point Taken

When Mister Man arrived home from school today, he announced that he had something to show me. He proudly unzipped his backpack and pulled out his snack box. I assumed he was going to show me how he ate his snack and did not spit his orange seeds into the bag but instead my exhortations that garbage should go into the garbage finally sunk in.

I was a little optimistic.

That said, isn't the hand writing on his note awfully neat? And it's so polite. And he wrote in full sentences. I'm so proud!

Ok, really, I'm searching for the silver lining here, while trying to recover my breath after laughing a little too hard.

How mature of him!

Is it the seeds he doesn't like? That's why I never liked oranges as a kid. You should get him clementines. Cuties are for kids, you know! :)

That's so cute!

That is too funny! And I do think it was awfully polite:)

He was very polite, and he has lovely penmanship.

What a gentleman! He's so sweet.

HAHAHAHAHAH. he is so precious! I love his handwriting too! :) I cannot wait to have kids and have moments like this!

Melisa - Ahhh, yes. Very mature. I suspect he whined about it and his teacher suggested this as a solution. I'm suspicious....

Heather - I thought so. I was so hopeful that my request that garbage go in the garbage was finally sinking in though.

Debbie - He is nothing if not polite. 95% of the time!

Tara - He'll be thrilled to hear that, as we've been working on handwriting for months and months. OT is making a significant dent in it.

Pat - Aww, thanks. I think so, too.

Heather - You will adore moments like this and keep your fingers crossed that you can remember them all. There's always something!

Kelly - I do have to admit, I love the fact that he's polite... at least in this instance ;)
