has to be able to tie his own shoes!
All of my other kids were taught before they started kindergarten. It was a house rule. You had to learn to tie your own shoes, before you started school.
It’s totally true that the baby of the family is spoiled, coddled, and has his own set of rules. Because only after my friend’s not yet five year old daughter was doted on by her mother, on facebook, for tying her own shoes, did I realize that I’d forgotten to teach Jack how to tie his!
So, we searched youtube, found a video, and all sat and watched (because without cable, youtube videos, with muppets, tying shoes, is seriously freaking entertaining), as Jack soaked in a little knowledge, that was long overdue.
We all rooted him on, and erupted into applause, when after just a few minutes, and a few tweaks to the muppet’s technique, he was a shoe tier.
It’s about damn time!!
