Things have been so rough with Maddie the last couple of weeks, I think I had forgotten how to smile...or laugh...until this morning.
I found a stack of papers Alek left on the dryer. I imagine he wasn't too keen on me finding them. He tucks them away like that when there's a bad grade in the stack.
Hidden in plain sight.
For the most part this kid is an awesome student. Bringing home A's and B's daily...but every once in awhile one sneaks past him.
In that stack I found one such paper....an F.
I was all prepared to talk to him about it this evening...until I saw the note written at the bottom of the page...
If you are looking at this I tried my best! The second paper I did good at. I really tried. I just put the decimal in the wrong spot and did not know the first time.
It made me smile...actually, it made me giggle and snort and laugh out loud.
My son knows me too well! :)
