Today’s parenting triumph in the Distance Learning Environment is *remembering* -finally- that Young Miss has *asked* us to remind her to practice her cursive.
What are the three things kids need again?
Love, Expectations, Purpose?
Hell I don’t know. I’ve only been a mom for like 13 years or something. I’ll figure it out eventually. Maybe even in this lifetime.
But for these few minutes I revel in her Purpose.
And her prattle.
“Wait, that’s upper case. Why is it upper CASE? And lower CASE? Why would there be a CASE against letters? Letters are the best! Letters form words, and words are the best. [Pause.] Not violence.”
And just like that, she’s off to her next “meet” for school.
Music for now. Joyful noise. On recorder no less.
And also: “Look!! It’s Mr. Mooney’s cat! His cat’s name is ‘Hamilton.’ Mr. Mooney just. said, ‘Hamilton get off the piano!'”
That’s right Hamilton.
Stay off the piano!
