Every once in a while, Chase gets in a mood where he is calm, reflective, and attentive. We have to capture it when it happens. He and I have struck a deal. He needs to have his homework done by 8pm, in bed by 10pm. This boy waits until really late to start his homework and I typically go to bed before he does. He needs his sleep (to be in a better mood) and he needs more time to do his homework (so I am in a better mood). I'm confident the rest of the school year will be smooth. I am just so proud of him. He is so much more mature and so much more responsive to being given direction. He is a keeper....seriously.
