I have mentioned before that I’ve decided to start Aidan with some homeschooling this fall. It’s going really well, to my surprise he is wanting to do a lot more than I expected. He actually asks me several times a day, “can we work on our letters now?” He’s really hungry to learn which is encouraging, at this point I wouldn’t be doing it if he was not wanting to. He’s pretty much outgrown his nap except for maybe once a week, I usually use this time to prepare dinner, but now I have this hungry kid begging me to teach him. I’ll figure it out, he’ll probably end up doing more cooking than ABC’s at this point, which is good too, we can work on ABC’s while we cook :)
Yesterday I was helping him to start to learn to write his letters. He’s done a lot of tracing letters but hasn’t written any on his own and I was showing him how. I finally figured out how to show him how to write the letter and was proud to see he’d done it right. He was proud too and said to me so sweetly, “I’m glad you are my teacher mommy, if I didn’t have a teacher I wouldn’t be able to learn how to write correctly.” I said, “yes, we all need teachers, Aidan.” Melt my heart.
I will have to remind him of that when he’s ten. ;)
