No big deal

Yesterday Gooly got back from school and started doing his 2-page home work with little fuss. He was humming a tune whilst colouring. Upon completion, he showed me his work and I realized that there were some unnecessary wiggly lines (in RED colour pencil) all over the page. It was messy indeed.

At this point, would you have shrieked your head off for such lackadaisical work?

Surprisingly, I didn't scream or yell. I mean, usually I would have been palpably upset at such shoddy work. I don't know what got over me, but all I did was just tilt my head a lil to the right, and asked, "What are those lines?"

He shrugged and said he was trying to erase something off the page using the eraser stub at the end of his pencil. I checked his pencil. The eraser had fallen off and I assume he didn't realize, thus making red marks from the pencil lead as he 'rubbed' it across the page.

Either that or he knew there were no erasers, but he was still rubbing the paper on purpose, creating 'snake' lines all over. Why would he do that? I dunno..boys don't really need a reason to do anything, do they?

I remained cool. My head was still tilted, wondering - WHY DID HE DO THAT? and DOES HE EVEN KNOW HE IS NOT SUPPOSED TO DO THAT? In between, I managed to think what to cook too.

Hmm.. he would have to erase the red marks, I told him, still in a cool mood. And he did try, but the marks just wouldn't come off.

Oh dear. He would have to hand in an untidy piece of work.

Just like that.

I didn't pop a vein this time.

Seriously, why so serious?

One piece of untidy work in kindergarten doesn't entail any unsuccessful career endeavors in future, right?

Don't sweat the small stuff.

I did well yesterday, I think.

seriously, i read a study report before that says how much hardwork and effort shown in doing homework during kindy years is the most essential point to determine what he/she is going to be in future.

those who hands in messy homework would most likely have something to do with graffiti art.

can plan for his future endeavour jor.
