I am thankful for childlike thoughts and logic. My son informed me today that he really likes learning cursive. (His handwriting is noticibly one of the worst in the class; he forms nearly every letter incorrectly; last year in first grade he would move the pencil from his left hand to his right hand when he got tired. Sometimes he used both at the same time to write).
I was thrilled he's taking to writing cursive because we worked a bunch this summer to develop his poor handwriting skills. "I'm glad you like cursive, son. Why?"
"Well, mom, cursive just looks like messy writing. Since my writing is messy, I think I will do well with it."
