Love is progress

“Mama, do you think I had a good day today?”

“I dunno, Buddy, did you?”

“What do you think?”

“Well, I sure hope you did. I think you probably did. Should we look?”

“Yes. You should look.”

“Okay, go grab your book for me.”


“Did you know that I drew all of those smilies myself?”

“Yes, I had a feeling that you had. Well, that is awesome.”


“Have I told you lately that you are my very favorite boy in the whole entire world?”

“I know.”

(Happy Love Thursday, everyone.)

    Cool book! We just get a regular daytimer and it’s just for the parents and teachers.

  2. Barb

    YAY MONKEY!! An all smiley day, how awesome!!

    On a side note, love the form his teacher uses. Wonder if she made that herself or if she found it somewhere…. I have some kids that could benefit from something similiar in my class….

    I am LOVING that book. My son is having lots of problems in kindergarten, and we could really use something like that. Did Monkey’s teacher make it, or…?
