Let The Homework Begin

Jackson had his first homework assignment last night, and if last night was any indication, it's going to be a long and drawn out school career for the next 16 years. There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth, and that was just Jeremy and I. Jackson was a whole nother ball game.

It wasn't a hard assignment by any stretch; he had to read a story (which went great) and then copy his ten spelling words out twice. He started off great, for the first 2 words, and then it was procrastination central. The whole assignment should have taken 10 minutes max, but someone, ahem Jackson, insisted on carrying on an impressive drama king routine and dragged the whole shindig out for an ungodly 45 minutes for 10 simple spelling words.

Right now my Mom is probably sitting here reading this and thinking to herself, "Payback sweetie!" for all the years I did the exact same thing to her.

To Mom and Dad, I need to give you a public apology from the bottom of my heart. I had no idea that homework really was as terrible to you as it was to me. Trust me, I get it now....

The best part? When he was finally done, Jackson said, "That wasn't so bad!"

If  he only knew...

Amy, God gives us children to grow us up, then grandchildren to laugh thru all the things that didn't kill us as parents. I see Casey "experiencing" parenting with Ella and think to myself she is just like you were at that age and what frustrates you is exactly who you were a that age. Have mercy!Ha! ha!
