Wednesday, you were assigned homework. It was due next Tuesday. You wanted to start it immediately.
Mommy wanted to wait for the weekend. I thought it was going to take a long time. And, honestly, I thought it was going to be “mommy homework.”
But, you totally knew what you had to do, and more importantly, how to do it.
You cut out those “momma and baby” animals like you had been using scissors all your life. And, then you used that glue stick and put the mommas right next to their babies. You did it like a pro.
Mommy should know by now that I shouldn’t set limits on your learning. I will work harder at encouraging new things and allowing you the ability to do to them without interfering.
Most importantly, I’m learning that you are becoming much less dependent on me. And, it makes me a little sad and a lot proud at the same time.
