good thing I’m an expert

I knew being a former kindergarten teacher would come in handy in parenting!

At my parent’s house this last weekend, we were playing our traditional family poker game after the kids went to bed. After the game, at nearly 10 o’clock, my brother was going upstairs and he noticed a note that was pushed underneath the girls’ door. He thought maybe it was a piece of trash from earlier, but as he looked again, a second note was pushed underneath the door!  So, he picked up the notes.

From April 2009

And my brother, having no prior experience in ‘reading’ 4 year old writing(it is a mastered skill after all), handed them to me to decode.  I have to say when I saw the notes that I was pretty proud of Rilyn trying so hard to write 1. in the dark, 2. so late at night, and 3. because she really wanted us to know something and she knew she wasn’t supposed to get out of bed unless bleeding or potty.  (Note to self:  Don’t reprimand her for wanting to do her creative writing assignments for school late at night.  She’s obviously a Knight Rider, night writer.)  😉

So, I guess we were being too loud while gambling having quality family time.

I would read 23 kindergarteners’ journals upside down and right to left every day so yah, I’m pretty good at this.

    That is hilarious! Reminds me of our Carver days–except MY kids couldn’t even write that well. 🙂
