Parent/Teacher Meeting

Well, it went great. Quite frankly, we were surprised to find out EVERY SINGLE ONE of our daughter's teachers thought she was kind, polite, respectful, engaging, participatory, and, well, delightful. Her only problem is not showing up.

They all call her a leader in the class, helpful to other students, and an all-around good kid.

So, now we work on getting her lazy rear in gear.

Yesterday was probably pure torture - she didn't go ANYWHERE and no one came over. She was having major car-withdrawals, so she got right up and went to school today.

I'm praying that this becomes the routine now.

One day at a time. It's more than twelve steps, that's for sure.

I was thinking about you this morning, wondering if she was getting going today...

she sounds like a sweet kid and that is A LOT to be grateful for! Maybe if those teachers looked her in the eye and said: "you know what? you are smart, capable, polite, and work well. I know you can do this and I know you will do wonderful things with your life. Please come to class, because you add so much and it will help you get where you want"

Teehee! That's funny! :) In the Philippines, parents would beat the -you know what- out of their kids if they wouldn't wake up early and go to school! :)

Here, being able to go to a really good school is a real luxury! :)

Thank you for visiting and for commenting on my BATW day! :)
