The boy...

The boy had homework from his kindergarten prep day camp.  He needed to trace his name, then try to write it.  Which he did--even if it took an entire line to write a six-letter name.  He then needed to trace 1 and copy it over the line.  And then 2.  And then the vowels. 

He started working on it around 4:00.  He has only just finished.

Lower case e was particularly bad--he kept drawing something that looked like a sperm, and claiming that it was the best he could do. 

I know better than that.  He does better than that on a regular basis. 

I am about ready to send him to his room directly after he eats (which he will not do until he's done with his homework) until bedtime.  I am so tired of his crap that it's not funny. 

And I'm sure I'll have more to make him do tomorrow. 


  1. Don't be too hard on him. Learning to write letters is not fun.

    1. He can already do three of the five. Those were the ones he was really goofing around on. Which is why I wasn't being the "nice mommy" with him farting around instead of doing what he was supposed to be doing. We've worked with him through J--he was putzing around worst with A, E, and I.
