Shaping Up

R starts first grade on Monday. Last night was a "meet the teacher" night at school. M took R to meet his teacher before I got home from work (I encouraged this because I knew that parking would be a NIGHTMARE after 5:30 when I'd get home.) R was telling me all about it and he was describing a girl who was there with her parents:

"Mom, you know those really mean girls from my kindergarten class year? And you remember there was the one girl who was beginning to shape up at the end of the year? Well, she'll be in my first grade class. Don't worry, it's okay, because she was the one that was shaping up."

Wow - two blogs in one day! She's baaa-ack and I love it!

I'm so glad SHE is shaping up and I hope she's had time over the summer to be in good shape! We'll keep an eye on her. . . who knows . . . SHE could be R's senior prom date!

That R . . . he really has alot going on in the little brain of his. I love to hear their thought process and verbalizing it so well!

I remember those mean girls, and I'm glad that at least one is shaping up, especially if she'll be following R to 1st grade.

Love to read these little jewels! That way we can remember them. This is one that will probably be coined.

How did R like his teacher? Are there any other buddies in the class? I'm glad she was beginning to shape up last year..no worries.. hee hee. It's amazing how mean some kids can be! Here's to a new schoolyear!

A lesson well learned R! Anyone can change, even mean (and not so mean) girls & boys. Happy to hear you gave her a 2nd chance. You have a warm heart & beautiful smile. Wishing you a great school year! xoxoxo
