More Than Four “So”s

2014 04 02 Note from Mommy

Mommy wrote than note to his this morning, April 2, 2014

From Daddy: Mommy left the above note to him this morning on the dining room table. He found the note at breakfast. In response, he wrote the note below, taking care to have written “more than four ‘SO’s” in order to exceed Mommy’s!

2014 04 02 Note to Mommy

His response to Mommy’s note, April 2, 2014

He’s getting so skillful at writing notes! In January (I think), he was very hungry before dinner and wrote the note below:

Hunger Note, January (I think) 2014

Hunger Note, January (I think) 2014 (the contrast is severe because he wrote lightly with a pencil and it didn’t scan well)

He didn’t know how to spell the word “make,” and he started to ask me how to spell it, when he ran to get his recently purchased book Baker Baker Cookie Maker:

Baker, Baker, Cookie Maker

Baker, Baker, Cookie Maker

He realized that he could figure out how to spell “make” using “Maker”! I was completely impressed with his resourcefulness.

This Evening

He asked for a little more dinner (well, the fun parts of dinner, anyway), and he very courteously asked and use the word “please.” I delightfully complimented him on being so polite! After Mommy agreed to get him more food, he very kindly said, “Thank you.” I highly complimented him again. He said, “I like saying ‘Thank you.’ ” What a great boy!

Today

His little day camp took him on a field trip to the California Academy of Sciences. Mommy was very nervous about the teachers taking all of the kids on the bus. He had a good time, however. He enjoyed watching the sea nettles. He originally reported that he watched them alone for a while, away from the group. When I asked in more detail, however, he said that he was “this far away” from the group, showing barely twelve inches between his two open palms.

This Morning

On the drive to day camp this morning, I spoke with him at length that he needed to follow the group (especially on and off buses) and to listen to teachers. He said that he knew the consequence might be getting lost, but I didn’t want to dwell on that thought.
