Obedient Boy

Monday, May 19th, 2014

I was using our oven timer while baking cookies. My son was playing in the living room, and every single time the timer went off, he yelled, “Can I get up now?” It was the same timer we used for time-outs!

Waiting Patiently

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

I was at the library with my son, and he had been playing with toys for a while. I asked if he was ready to check out his books and go. He replied, “No Mommy, I’m still playing.” About two minutes later, he looked up at me and said, “Good job being patient, Mommy! Good job!”

Keeping Quiet

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

My son said something that I could not understand, so I asked him to repeat it. He responded, “Don’t listen to me. I have bad words in my mouth.”

Note to Teacher

Monday, April 29th, 2013

apology letter from student to teacherDear Mrs. WB,

I do apologize for the way I have acted today. I drank a little (Mountain) Dew this morning. We got a puppy last night. I was flabbergasted, so I’m a little hyper this morning.
