If you read A Hunter's Wife Cry for Help - The Original Post just know I am not who I was. 
Over the years my bitter hatred towards hunting grew into a strong dislike, but understanding.
A Hunter's Wife Cry for Help - Part II can attest to my growth.
But today we find ourselves here.
Over the last year there's been more growth and through the last months there's been a radical change. 
If you would've asked me what I like to do after 9 p.m. several years ago I would tell you "be sleeping". 
If you asked me in the middle of April 2020 I probably would've said "go coon hunting"....

You're in complete shock.

Even though they're 5 and 7 and fully know how to write all their letters, I know if I write a letter a certain way they will do it just like I did. 
I know if I get lazy they will justify being lazy in their own writing. 
I know if I slack off they will think it's okay to be a slacker.
I know if I bend the rules just once they'll think it's okay to bend them whenever too.
And. 
It.
Hit.
Me. 
I should be more concerned about them copying my actions than my handwriting.
Seriously. 
Yes they're watching how I write...but ev…
