Homework Fun

Leelee had her second 'crafty' homework project of kindergarten this week. We worked on it tonight, and once again I felt like I was in my glory as a parent. I usually get the feeling when we're baking, because I have a vivid memory of baking cookies with my mom when I was a toddler. But, today it came when we were crafting.

Today, my daughter and I were picking ribbon colors, cutting, designing and gluing. And, I was loving every minute of it. I think I'm more excited about her decorated bat (the nocturnal flying kind) than she is. I wonder if Leelee will remember this. I wonder what kind of feelings she'll have when she helps her child with her kindergarten homework. I wonder how her teacher will like the bat.

I appreciate your positive spin on what I refer to as "Mommy Homework" - in other words, an assignment that requires at least one trip to Michael's or Joann, and challenges my already meager creative skills! Your post is a good reminder to me that, if I have a positive and fun attitude about these assignments, that it will really enhance my experience, and my girls' as well!
Now, if the assignment requires baking, well, that's a different story...
As for Leelee - even if she doesn't remember the actual projects, she will grow up with wonderful feelings about working and being creative alongside her mom. And that's what we're all about, isn't it? :)
