my daughter loves doing her homework. and i love that she loves it. she takes kindergarten very seriously. it is evident. i drop her off every morning with her hair neatly pulled back, her face scrubbed, her clothes washed. and when i go to pick her up, i don't always recognize her in the carpool line. her hair is all over the place, she has a chocolate pudding mustache, and her shirt is polka dotted with magic marker and fruit juice. i try not to let her see my jaw drop at times, it is truly a remarkable metamorphosis. i have asked other mothers if they are having similar experiences with their children and they don't seem to understand. so why is my child such a big mess? i just have to believe it's her effort. a+, wouldn't you say?
