For the past 4 years, I’ve left my sons a little something extra on the letter that we write and leave for them during their Back to School Night.
This year before I could remember it was Back to School Night, my middle son walks up to me and says, “Dad, for the drawing tonight, can you draw something from Dragonball?”
“For what drawing tonight?” I ask.
“Back to School Night,” he replies.
Moral of the story: Consistency builds expectations.
