Take your time

Take your time. My preschooler is very into everything about letters (wonder where he got that from) at the moment. He seriously asks for us to letter together several times a day. He can’t actually make letters entirely by himself yet, but he’s gathering up the courage to try. While he initially gingerly takes marker to paper, he quickly gets very excited and rushes to the end of each letterform. We were lettering together yesterday, and I found myself humming “Take your time” to him, and to myself, as we worked. We both needed it.
