...for Thing One at least.
Yesterday, he had no homework (standardized testing week at his school, no homework during the week of the almighty assess them till they drop process of CSAPs) so he decided to help his brother with his homework.
I'm thinking his logic was that the sooner both of them finished, the sooner they could both get back to playing.
So, he tells his brother "Are you ready for your spelling words?" Brother replies yes.
"Ok, spell the word high. You know H.I.G.H"
"Good, now spell the word flight. You know F.L.I.G.H.T"
(I fear he gets this "give 'em the answer" approach from his momma)
