Should have named him Joe.

Phoenix got his first homework assignment. A sheet with his name for him to trace, and my baby, with his name filled with Ps and Hs and Xs sat down and did it. He got right to it, and sure, got distracted here and there, but he knew to finish it. And he did. And I watched him hold the pencil, then the crayon, and I watched him switch hands, and I watched him work and complete and I am filled with so much yes.
Watching him do something new, and learn and grow is just about the best thing since ever.

A Jedi, that one is.
