Friday’s Optimism – Not Happy?
T4 gave us a note and this is what it said…
Children can bring such joy… and prove to be great challenges. My little mini-me, Thomas IV, has become quite fond of writing notes/letters lately. He wants to write a letter to his friend Cooper. He wants to write a letter to Grandma. Its quite adorable. Of course, his skill set for writing letters isn’t quite up to par with other kids his age. But he still loves the idea and we still encourage him to express his feeling and thoughts in anyway possible.
Well as of late, when things are a little rough for him and he ends up in timeout, he will write letters expressing his frustration with us, his parents. He rolls them up / folds them and drops them from the top of the stairs. It kind of reminds me of a the stranded on a dessert island note in bottle tossed out to sea with hopes that someone will get the note and come to my aid. Above was one of his notes from yesterday that we found today: Not Happy… But we are happy that he is trying to communicate to us his feelings.
What a great lesson in life, if you are not happy about something then DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Write it down. Express it. Move on. And find a way to be happy.
Make it a great day and a great weekend!
