Monkey Make You Crazy

He's a clever one, that boy.

During his first semester of preschool, Alastair had at least two notes sent home about his behavior. None extolled his virtues...

Yesterday he got yet another note sent home, but instead of reporting him taking things or cutting up or even having to go sit in the hall, this one said he'd been exceptionally good all day, that I should be proud of him, and that I'm doing a great job as a parent.

He was SO excited when I got home, he gushed about his good note. The sitters also expressed their pride in him, and we talked about how good it is to be good all night.

Then I dropped him off at school this morning and got a little more info...

Apparently, just before school let out yesterday, his teacher told him he'd been very good. Sensing opportunity, he asked if she could send me a note about how good he'd been, since all of his previous notes had been negative. Seriously: he took the initiative to ask for written positive reinforcement. He's 4.

I'm not sure whether to be proud or terrified.
