A few nights ago was the Parent’s Back to School night. It is a night when parents can visit their kids’ classroom and meet the teacher to learn about what goes on in the class.
In my daughter’s first grade class, I sat at her desk and listened as the teacher guided us through their day and had a chance to look through her writing journal, math journal, etc. In one of her journals, I decided to write her a note so I flipped to an empty page a few days ahead of where she was in the journal and wrote,
“Dear Lilliana, I love you. -Daddy”
After I wrote it, I started second-guessing myself. My daughter has recently decided that she doesn’t want me walking in with her to her classroom since she’s too big now so maybe she’ll be embarrassed and irritated that I wrote in her school journal.
Later in the week, I got my answer in Lil’s homework binder. This binder has a notebook in it in which she writes down her homework assignment. I help her with her homework and then sign the page for her to take back to school. As the kids were changing out of their school clothes, I opened her binder to see what we had to do this evening. Here’s what was written:
“Math packet due tomorrow
Read 20 minutes
i love you because you are the best family ever. love, lilliana”
