Back to school means back to homework.
Tommy is pretty good about doing his stuff. Sometimes. There will be days where I'll dig through his backpack and find a worksheet at the bottom of his bag. "Do you have to do this?" I'll ask and he'll be like, "Maybe..." MAYBE?!
Natalie tends to get distracted when she does her homework. She'll play with her pencil. Roll around. Make random comments like, "Pigeons are funny looking."
She'll have homework Monday-Thursday in second grade. It's slightly more than first grade where she had homework Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
Here's her work now:
I know I could be like, "Do it. If you don't, you'll lose recess because you'll have to do it while your friends are out playing."
But I can't!
Maybe because I'm one of those people who like to follow the rules. I feel weird and sweaty if I don't. I turned in all my homework in school.
So I sit with Natalie and remind her to just finish her homework and then she'll be done.
"This is just so boring!" she'll yell dramatically. "I just don't like these words."
Oh man. It's going to be a long school year.
