Ok, I promise I'm not going to give you the blow by blow of Sadie's exploits in Kindergarten. By day 154, I should have exhausted my desire to remember every detail as explained to me by my spunky five year old.
Or her teacher. We're going to call her Mrs. Barth - because that's her name. I love it because Sadie still can't say her S's so it hides her lisp perfectly.
Anyone know a good speech therapist?
After her first official afternoon as a Kindergartner, I got an email...
Dear Mrs. Hill
I just want you to know that on this first day of school I have saved you from a giant flying cockroach :-) We had one in class today and after it flew through the air, landed on a student and chaos ensued -- I heard a sweet happy voice exclaim "Oh it's a cockroach !! Can I have it?? My mom is so afraid of cockroaches! Can I take it home and scare her?? " Love that Sadie girl!! I cant wait until next Tuesday!!
I'm sorry, she must have gotten my daughter confused with a slightly sadistic five year old who would get her kicks from scaring the bejeebies out of her momma.
Not my baby.
Did Sadie tell you she was a little sad at school today? After listening to Chopin’s “Raindrop Prelude” (its a little melancholy) she was so sad that she wanted her mama and couldn’t draw a picture.
Now that's more like the angel I know and love.
She recovered well for the puppet center and Math but was definitely ready to come home. She is so sweet and is doing well in class! You know it takes a while to build up some stamina for those long days. Just so you know.
Oh yeah – when I told the class that Senora Adams would be coming to teach Spanish today Sadie said she already knew some Spanish but they were bad words – I asked her not to say them. :)
It explains why my fourth could be the child I would have never let my first born play with.
For the record, the "bad word" she knows is 'callete'. It means shut-up in Spanish. She learned it from Tee who undoubtedly learned it from some fourth child.
And that, my friends, is the circle. The circle of potty-language.
