I don’t expect my kids to stay the same. Honest. But in the last week, we’ve had a lot of changes.
In the first couple weeks of school, the Little Kidlet has sort of gotten the hang of writing his name. I’m glad we went with a short name for him, because I pity the kids learning to write Christian, Alexander (he doesn’t go by Alex) or Enrique. It’s at least beginning to look like his name- the first week it was just a bunch of scribbles.
He’s also suddenly begun nearly coloring neatly inside lines and drawing faces. This particular classroom is MAGIC. I haven’t even worked with him on those thing. I only had him try to write his name ONCE, too.
This week, the Oldest Kidlet started to insist that he make his own peanut butter sandwiches (I supervise) or peanut butter cracker sandwiches. He’s also been putting his clothes in the laundry pile.
I did not expect these level ups to come so quickly, people. At least video games usually give you progress meters.
