This morning before getting ready for work, I quickly fill out a permission form for my seven-year-old daughter to attend a school field trip.
“I filled this out for you. Please put it in your knapsack to go to school.”
She looks at the paper and points to a g. “Dad, what letter is this right here? Is that an s?”
“No, it’s a g. It’s just messy. I wrote it quickly.”
“Dad…you’re always telling me to take my time and be neat when I write and then your writing is all messy.”
