Why the Smiley Face Every Time?

Why the smiley face every time?

Five blogs per day.  Five smiley faces per day.


This past school year, our eight-year old son read most nights.  He was responsible for logging what he read, how many pages and the elapsed time spent reading.  He also was responsible  for getting my wife or I to sign our name for each entry.

I always signed my name with a smiley face.

One day I stopped doing it, thinking it was silly, or maybe immature.

Later, my wife told me that our son spoke to her about it, and wondered why I had stopped.

So I asked my son why he even noticed, because I didn’t think he did.

Well guess what?  He did notice.  He liked them, and he missed  them.  And I’m back to adding a smiley face every time I sign my name.

PS.  Life is what happens while we’re busy making other plans.  🙂
