Practice Makes Perfect

 If I mention handwriting homework, he moans.
If I mention holiday diaries, he groans.
If I notice that he is laboriously copying out Liverpool football results, I say nothing.
And sneak a photo or two.
Practice makes perfect.

  1. I know another boy who used to do that. Then he'd concoct his own score charts and league tables. Anything stressful and a bit of quiet “tabling” always helped. Mind you, think ahead – this boy earned money scoring cricket matches last summer and he's doing an umpiring course this year! Keep tabling!
