Sam Writes!

I may have wept a little when he successfully executed this. He does so much at school, and I kind of thought that the name writing skills would be mastered under another person's tutelage. But so far he's not brought home any 'work' in which he's written his own name. We were getting ready to go to a birthday party yesterday, and I asked if he wanted to sign the card. When he said yes, we decided he would practice first on some plain paper. This was his first attempt! Afterwards I was so relieved we practiced first, because I wouldn't have wanted to give away his first signature.

I don't know why this made me so glad, but it did. Why try and rationalize it? Maybe moments like these come along to help offset the ones like we had on Friday.


He drives me nuts most days, but I wouldn't want it any other way.


Visit Tracy at Mother May I for more best shot monday.

Those little turkeys sure know how to pull out all the stops when you're just at the point of tossing 'em out and starting over, huh? Well played, Sam, well played! :)

It made you glad because that was a Mom Moment. You know, those little moments where your heart grows a little bigger and you love gets deeper and deeper. I had one the other day when my oldest told me he needed to say his pray before bed. I taught him to pray, not school, so I know that was all my doing and I had that Mom Moment of pride and joy!

How could that sweet blue eye boy drive you nuts?

How sweet. I'm glad you didn't have to give his first signature away... congratulations Sam!

Oh very cool! Just as it should be.I have her first writing and drawing in a box of treasures. Come to think of it, her writing hasn't improved much....
