Yesterday, as we went out for our lunch outing and errands, Mitchell asked me how to spell, "No," and I told him. He seemed to move on, and I forgot all about it. As we got home, later, he asked me how to spell, "Nap," and I told him.
When we got into the house, he went to the table where he had been drawing and picked up the pen. I thought he was going to draw, and I went about putting away the groceries. Mitchell came up and handed me this note.
That is the first thing I've seen him write other than his name, without copying an example. The thing that impressed me the most was that he had apparently been planning it all day, and he seemed to be smart enough not to ask me the two words at the same time... I think I'm in for some seriously devious behavior when he's a teenager!
