It’s a certain someone‘s birthday today, and the boys and I collaborated on a banner. My instructions were clear:
Aidan, you write HAPPY, I’ll write BIRTHDAY, and Eamonn, you write DADDY. Then we’ll hang them all up for Daddy to see when he comes downstairs this morning.
Well, my boys are nothing if not outside-of-the-box thinkers, and instead of Happy Birthday Daddy, I got Happy Coke Chocolate Orange Cinnamon Raspberry Lemon Birthday For You Daddy Daddy Daddy I Love You Seriously Eamonn. *sigh*
Admittedly, this is way more interesting than what I had planned, but I can’t help but think ahead to the coming school year, and their homework assignments. Individuality and creativity is not always a prized commodity when it comes to following directions and completing worksheets. Although, I think homework would be a heck of a lot more fun if it were, don’t you?
