Natalie got her first month report on how she’s doing in preschool.
A part of me figured they’d say that she had to work on sharing, because she’s not the best at sharing. Like, the other day I was brushing out her My Little Pony’s hair and thinking, “Actually, purple hair with glitter doesn’t look so bad..” when she snatched it from me.
So I did not expect to read that she needed to work on having a louder voice in class.
She needs to work on having a louder voice? Did I read that right?
I immediately flashed back to that morning.
“I DON’T WANT A POPTART!” screamed Natalie, her face bright red as she pushed aside the delicious pastry that I had lovingly warmed up in the toaster.
And then I thought back to the night before, when Natalie bonked Tommy over the head for daring to touch her stuffed pumpkin.
“NO BROTHER. THIS IS MINNNNNEEEEE!”
On the plus side, at least she seems to have manners in the presence of others. It’s just me she feels the need to act up for.
