I'm having a hard time at work these days, and as a result I'm finding it hard to feel present in almost anything else I do (certainly blogging). The kid, though, does an amazing job of keeping me grounded.
I'm looking through Helena's homework assignments for the rest of the week, and I mention tomorrow's, she doesn't need to do it yet, but maybe she should think about it, think about how to approach it, what topic to choose to make it easier.
"It's not good to choose what's easy, Mom. You won't learn anything that way."
(It would've been easier to do it today, but I guess we'll learn more if we do it tomorrow.)
