As part of his schoolwork today, Zander had to trace and write an entire page of letters. For some reason, Z can’t stand tracing the same letter over and over. If they’re all different, he’s fine, but the repetition of the same letter really gets to him.
Well, I pulled out the book and explained exactly what he needed to do. Usually this entails a HUGE argument, tears, and a royal fit.
Today, however, he got a sour look on his face and said, “Mom, I don’t like tracing. I hate it. But I know I HAVE to do it. Even though I really don’t like it.”
