Li’l D’s first blog
A month or two ago, I sat in a tiny chair at a tiny desk and chatted with my older son’s first grade teacher.
Li’l D’s best grades were in Science and Religion. His worst–but still decent–grade was in … writing. (I know, right?!)
I told his teacher I wasn’t concerned, and that I felt he’d find his own groove in his own time. I explained that I’d spent huge chunks of his earlier years trying to force skills upon him before he was ready for them, and that this frustrated all while benefiting none. In fact, he flourished more the further back I stood.
I have a feeling he’s likelier to find fondness for writing here in the broadness of the blogosphere than from the narrow confines of a student desk.
I look forward to witnessing his writing journey, though I’ll support him just the same
if he only posts twice ever and continues favoring science and religion!
