It's not snazzy. But she's the one who pulls out the notebook and gets it done.
She may not dazzle but she has a steadiness and maturity about her that her teachers sense and appreciate.
So that the parent - teacher conferences are really more about treating the parent!
"She's a lovely child." they tell me.
What a nice change from "not everyone can go to gymnasium, Frau Connor."
I'm still learning to accept that she isn't an avid reader. I still wonder what she could have done if she had had the benefit of the same fantastic program that the twins are in now. But, thanks to her teachers, I AM appreciating what she DOES have - a steadiness, self-worth and a real sense of who she is.
Parenting Ryan makes me a better person. If it doesn't kill me first!
