Explaining to Oliver today that he doesn't have to be excellent at everything. It's ok to be just ok as long as you're trying your best and you have a good attitude. Some people are better at math than others, I know many are better at it than me! Thank goodness for calculators! And there's always spell check. There are so many tools available to help us along. I just want him to not get so down on himself about academics. Really, all this pressure to become so proficient at things that even I've forgotten. I know he's bright, sensitive, loving and can memorize lines like a mad man! He's got quite a character and that will carry him wherever he wants to go. Love this little guy.
