A study in contrasts

Charles had his first homework this week (handed out Monday, due Friday) and he was very excited about it. Alice has been so excited about homework that we had to give her a little notebook in which she can do her “homework”.

Corwin, on the other hand, is not quite so thrilled. His homework is a bit more of an effort and involves that which he dreads second most1, creative writing. I think his problem is that he spends a lot more energy on convincing himself the homework is too hard than on actually doing it.

1 Number one is girl cooties. Apparently the modern strain is so virulent that you can get it just from watching a girl being physically affectionate on the TV.

Both of my children are very afraid of the modern strain of girl cooties. Eyes are covered every time public displays of affection hit the tv screen.
