A request from the Boy Child

As I discussed yesterday, the Girl Child had her last day of kindergarten yesterday and I left her a note to tell her how proud I was of her for completing her year. She got a certificate for perfect attendance for the first semester and would have had a certificate for the second semester, too, if it were not for the strep throat at the end of the year. I gather the note, which she discovered when she came down for breakfast, was a big hit. I think it also made a big impression on the Boy Child for when I got home from work last night, he made his request.

There he stood, next to the kitchen table, naked as a jaybird, hair still wet from his bath, very earnest and hopeful expression on his face as he shyly stumbled through the following:

Pappa, I know I can't read, but do you think you could make me a note telling me how proud you are of me for pre-school?

The Boy got his note, left for him next to his breakfast spot for discovery when he came down this morning.

I had a good chuckle this morning at that one. I can almost see the look on his face as he asked you that even though I've never seen you or your children.

RP, enjoyed this little story so much. A grand reminder that 'little things' mean a lot. Your children are so special and you obviously play a bigger roll (than you probably even realize -- but its clear from this vantage point), in their interpretations of the important things in life. Their antics and observations often amuse me, motivate me, or return me to sensitivities that are so easily dismissed or forgotten.

A purchase order came before I was pregnant it that's always a good point. The offer was purely ideal along with the technique terrific. Needed getting used to the darkish leafy visual but entire I'm just happy. Edan Aharony.

I got myself this breadmaker these at my guy since i have killed his look-alike Oakleys. They are superior quality, so it appears like I cannot be dividing these so easy! He really likes them, they normally in shape properly!
