Broken CrayonsJune 7, 2007
I spent part of the morning yesterday breaking my daughter’s crayons.
No, I’m not a mean mom. Her new handwriting book says to only let her write with little bits of broken crayons. Apparently, having to hold on to the little bits of broken crayons will build up the strength in her fingers. Who would have thought?!! And all this time I thought I was only a good mom if all my kids had new boxes of clean, unbroken crayons with sharpened points and all of the paper intact. At least I was able to go back and sharpen the ends of her little bits of broken crayons. Here’s hoping for stronger fingers!
