Sample text

I made sure that the fierce eyes looked really fierce, even though this was impossible to do without distorting the whole face into an unappealing conglomerate of facial parts. After that treat, the sweety-pie eyes looked like a real refuge. No wonder Billy went for them. “Billy, you didn’t do your homework. ” “No, Mom. ” “Why not? ” “OK, I will be kind. ” “Good. Now I have kind eyes. ” We hug, and Billy looks into my kind eyes. Our eye language training is still in process. Billy’s command of it is pretty good with people whom he knows well.

The smell of the ocean, the seagulls, the occasional seals all took us away from the cuddly morning at home. Braced by the salt breeze, we returned home as if from a long trip. And we didn’t return home to home, we returned home to school. Billy was given 15 minutes of free time, and at 9:15 he was to be at Aristotle School for the first class. Meanwhile, I’d slip into my teacher role. I talked to Billy like a teacher, I walked like a teacher, I even squinted my eyes a little, just to add to my character.

It took me a while to gain Billy’s trust, to get him to share with me what was in his hidden mind. When he realized he could actually talk with me about his knights and dragons, he began using every chance to tell his stories. “Mom, do you think this dragon is real? Are you afraid of bad spirits? I need to tell you 40 Teaching at Home about this fight when the big, huge dragon goes to a far away land to fight mean spirits. There was a storm in his way. ” Now we have more stories than we ever wished for.
