Simone has been tracing letters at preschool for a few months now. This week I picked up two portable dry-erase boards at the local discount store. As soon as we arrived home, Simone announced she would write her name on her board. I was surprised and proud when I saw she had kept her promise.
I do not know when I learned to write my name. I am pretty sure it was not before I stepped inside an elementary school. Simone squealed when I grabbed the camera, and I am glad I acted fast. A few seconds later, she erased her name and the small self-portrait that accompanied it. They grow up so fast. Cherish every minute.
