|Trust The B to spell it out.......|
I fear trouble might be brewing at school . . . .
The B stands to bear the brunt, but the mistake is all mine.
You see, I appear to have committed a cardinal sin. I should, perhaps, explain.
The B's thirst for all things educational proving unquenchable, he has been making great strides with his writing in recent times . . . .
Or at least, so I thought.
During our latest meeting at the school he is due to start in September, we were told that under no circumstances should children interested in developing their pen skills between now and then be allowed to write in capital letters.
It turns out that, once capitals have been mastered, persuading the child to use lower-case characters is all but impossible . . . .
The B is brilliant at writing, but it turns out that, thanks to me, he's been doing it wrong all along.
I had been hoping to give him a head start. I hope that, in attempting to help him to get ahead, I haven't set him back too much . . . .
