My son had a meltdown this morning.

As I have previously posted, we do English every morning.  Well, we finish up with spelling in a notebook.  It’s really not a lot, but he has a lot of other stuff he has to do for school and so forth, so I think it builds up.

Anyway, he didn’t want to do the spelling.  He said he was tired.  So I said, “I pay you money to do this.”  And he got 100 yen from his savings and gave it to me.  I was fine to let him stop working, but my husband told him to finish.  So he finished the spelling and I returned his 100 yen coin.

Later I asked him gently if he wanted to stop with the two languages.  He said, No, he wanted to continue. 

I guess we all have our bad days…..
