Baby A came home shortly after school started with some news. “Mommy, we won’t get homework until September.” How do you feel about that? I asked her. “Awwwwww,” she moaned, with a dejected face. “I don’t want to wait!” HA!
I later realized the girls were unofficially counting down until the end of August. September 1st was on a Tuesday, and they just knew they’d get homework that very day.
As it turns out, their teachers waited until this week to finally bestow upon them their long-anticipated homework. They were SO excited!!!
They had a story to read and some questions to answer by Friday, and then they are supposed to read to a parent for 10-15 minutes a night.
I had to laugh when I saw the girls after school today. (Daddy had a faculty meeting so I left work a little early to hang out with them…woo hoo!!!)
“Mommy, can I read in the car?”
“I can read for 10 minutes in the car and then I can do my homework when we get home!”
“Have I read for 10 minutes?” Baby A asked. When I told her I thought it was close, she read the blurb on the back of the book. “Now it’s 10, right?! Now I can do my homework at home!!!”
Baby A ran in and got right to work. She waaay over-delivered on writing sentences. She almost wrote a book herself!
Baby B had done her reading in the car, but she didn’t get to her homework right away. She was too anxious to read new library book. Hee hee!
