"such a good friend."
"a fantastic writer." (this one surprised me, BTW)
"so polite and considerate."
"really doing well."
"reading well beyond her grade level."
"very organized in her thoughts."
and . . .
"funny, but sometimes disruptive."
UH OH. Not that we didn't know, but it's not really what you want to hear from the person who spends seven hours a day with her five days a week.
Her teacher was surprisingly good natured about it and has been really good about keeping me updated on what is happening in class. But still . . .
We talked about ways to keep her focused and to challenge her, but the bottom line is this. She is healthy, happy and smart. And super damn funny. Things could be much, much worse I say. An extremely bright, funny girl doesn't feel so bad.
Here's to a great weekend with our amazing kids. They are more than I could have ever asked for.
