mommy's little helper
we are drowning in homework over here. it is really crazy in my opinion. mason had nineteen pages of homework this week. in kindergarten! part of it is mason's fault for not finishing all of his work in class. the work that he doesn't finish we do at home in addition to the usual homework assigned. we are starting to think that perhaps he did start kindergarten too early. i don't know if you can tell but he is doing subtraction in the photo. addition and subtraction in kindergarten? what ever happened to finger painting?
every night we seem to struggle to get mason to do his homework. it is a long process that is extremely frustrating. his attention span is so short it takes five minutes of coercing just to get him to write his name. tonight i decided to make myself a little cocktail before we sat down for homework. and you know what? it worked. homework was so much nicer with a pink martini for me.
