Because last year on our son’s first grade reading log, we had to sign off on his time read and pages read. Every time I signed off, I would put a little smiley face.
I stopped doing it after a while, because I thought maybe it was childish.
Our son asked my wife, while I was away on a business trip, “Why doesn’t Daddy use smiley faces anymore”?
He noticed it. He appreciated it. He missed it.
I fixed that quickly.
Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
