to find it was his turn (again) taking home "The Letter Bag".
The Letter Bag is a bag that the kids in his class rotate taking home
each night with the letter they are working on. Each letter goes home
twice in a row to individual kids.
This bag first came home a few weeks back with the letter F.
" #ucking great", I said when we got that one.
He is in speech and gets a letter he can't even say.
And to boot, we were the second one to get that letter,
so Kid #1 collected all the good stuff.
So here it comes again - The Letter Bag. This time with the letter J.
And guess what? Garrin is Kid #2 again.
So Kid #1 of course brought in all the easy ones....
Jelly, Juice, Jet, .........
Here is what we came up with:
Yup, well that would be ME.
Not we. Why?
Because my kid has NO FRIGGEN IDEA about
Not even a little bit.
AND in his second year of Pre-K speech.
This is the same kid that sings:
"A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,M,O,P,Q,R,S,X,Y,Z....now you know my ABC's..
next time won't you come with me."
This is the same kid,
"Garrin, what does Bill start with...B...B...B...Bill??"
Anyhoo. In comparing Connor (a speech kid graduate) with Garrin..
come on folks, you know you all do it...compare your kids to each other,
and to everybody else's kids.....
Connor at this age was reading right before getting ready to enter Kindergarten.
Garrin? Not so much. NOT.EVEN.CLOSE.
That's OK. He'll get there in his own sweet time. And he'll have an
extra year, thank you Jesus (that begins with J).
He's gonna need it!!!
