Wow - his first all-nighter in 5th grade! You know what, I think it's great that he cared and ended up wanting to do it right. He's such a smart kid, next time he'll want to do it even sooner (I'm forever an optimist, I realize this can be annoying!).

And that last line? Truer words were never written. I fear I'm in the middle of a big ugly lesson right NOW.

Oh no--I hope it 's not too painful of a lesson. Remember to find the good in it if you can (perspective helps!).
