When looking for props, I selected a pencil and a chair. Even Titus was like, "Why do you have a pencil?"
Who needs creativity when you have a kid so absolutely gorgeous as this one? I told Sean a few weeks ago, "Our Tito Burrito really is a beautiful child. He doesn't look like any of us. He doesn't look like me, he doesn't look like you..." Sean stopped me abruptly, "He better look like me or, you and me, we're gonna have a problem, m'kay?"
I'm kidding, it does matter. This morning as he read through his assignments and completed so much of them solo, I had many moments of, "I did that." Teaching a kid to read and write has got to be the most rewarding thing a person can do. I mean, there are other things as rewarding, sure, but...that's way up there at the tippity top of the list.
