Happy and helpful

For bedtime stories tonight, of all nights, Mattman wanted his absolutely favourite book of babyhood.

So we read it, and I choked back six years. P3 for him tomorrow, needing all his own accoutrements now, with everything individually labelled.

But of course the big debut on the academic stage belongs to Jojo! Just as well the Green Room is ready in time for new performances...

What I want, what I pray earnestly, for these boys, and for the other boys and girls who are yours, is that they be happy and helpful in their schools. And that, as their teachers "get" our children, they'll be to their teachers more than just another pencil in the case.
