and handed me a "card" she made me..
and then I open it, and it is a "pop-up" card.
I asked how she did it, she goes over to the coffee table
where she has been working to make "party hats"
for later today, and comes back with the cover of a pad
of construction paper. She says.."I followed the directions."
(here is where I start crying,) she says,"see, here it says, "how to make a pop up card"..
blah,blah,blah.I couldn't even hear the rest of what she was reading, because,at that moment,
I realize two things..
- My kid is now reading independently,
- the little twerp is perfectly capable of following directions!!
She is off to make the other projects listed..after reading me all the steps..by herself. *sob!*
