We’re Taking A Break Right Now In The Hopes That A Fresh Approach Will Help Us BOTH In A Bit

“But I can’t think of anything that would make someone a good teacher!” my son fussed at me today in response to a (theoretically) brief writing assignment on that topic.

Patience, I kept mentally repeating to myself over . . . and over . . . and OVER . . .


Thanks For Using Me As Your Emotional Proxy There, Son

The school year is coming to an end soon, and I think my son is going to miss his virtual school teacher, but he doesn’t want to admit it.

I came to this conclusion after leaving class briefly to get myself a glass of water, only to come back to hear his teacher saying, “Oh, L., I’m going to miss you guys too!”

Suspicious at the timing (He’d type his every thought into the chat box if I let him, so I usually ask him what he’s typing as soon as I hear the first keystrokes, and this wouldn’t be the first time he’d taken advantage of any lapse of my attention), I looked over his shoulder to see what he had typed in my brief absence:

“My dad is really going to miss you!”
