Isaiah’s school yearbook came home with his mom on Monday. It’s a very nice book, lots of pictures, and lots of names. He wanted to sit down and have me look at the pictures with him. Silly me, I thought he meant of his classmates so he could tell me who everyone was.
Noooo…. He wanted to look at the WHOLE book. Every name, every picture, every event in the book had to be looked at and read. If I missed something, such as “Teacher,” he was quick to correct me. “That says ‘teacher’ after his name, Grandma.” If I mispronounced a name, he corrected me. If I said “Mr” or “Mrs” in front of a last name, he corrected me if that person just went by “Mr” or “Mrs” first name.
This child seems to know every person in the school, what grade they’re in, and who their siblings are (if any). I made it through the entire staff, support staff, kindergarten, and first grade. After that, I was finished. I told him that he would need to go from second grade on with his mother. When I told Amy, she laughed and said they’d already gone through the book and read every name.
Goody for her – she gets to do it again.
