I'm just a blogging fool today. I can't shut up.
So sweet 6 year old A left his notebook in my purse.
I presume it was there for sacrament meeting entertainment. I finally buckled down and told my kids they can only have a notebook and a pen during church - no toys. Who needs 'em? They have a great time creating stick figure wars on their notebooks during the meeting.
The tricky part is turning down the volume on the sound effects. If you have a boy or if you have ever been or known a boy, you know what I mean. I hate to do gender stereotyping but it is my experience that girls do not have the sound effects gene. If you would like to contradict this, feel free.
Back to my point. A has some very cute drawings in his notebook. 6-year-old art is always fantastic. But there was a different part that I really liked.
He graded himself on every page. And every grade was 100%. Even on the personal essay that described how much he liked his cat, because it was warm. We have no cat. But fiction can still get a 100%.
My very favorite? The page that said "100% Mom did this." Like I gave the grade.
I think we have a politician on our hands, folks. Or maybe a PR genius.
What would you give yourself 100% for? That is a hard question for grownups. I like how little kids are not so hard on themselves.
