First Class in Second Grade


Wow those second graders are picky! I was asked to change my clothes this morning before we headed out to school...can you believe that? I guess my Old Navy tank was okay for first grade but it's gotta be first class all the way in second grade! He says in a nice but disapproving manner, "why don't you ever wear your nice shirts? someone may see your armpit" I tried not to laugh, but instead realized image must be important so I politely went and changed into a NON-Armpit shirt! (lol)
When we first walked in, I realized this wasn't the teacher I thought we were going to have but hey, we moms of deaf children are looking for good voice quality (check)...cooperation (check)...and interest in teaching our exceptional children (check)! So we were good, she said she was excited to see Gage on her list (he's the only deaf/ci child in the school) so that's a plus. I did have to ask her to change his seat, his seating was not in relation to his left side ci, but she readily changed him to a proper seat in relation to his better ear (implanted ear). Think we are good to go! He had a great day and lets cross our fingers for Brook's big day tomorrow! Her first day of four year old preschool! ("it" could hit the fan tomorrow) she may look sweet and innocent, but I know her well!!! * grin*
Oh, and Gage asked me if his voice sounded deep...haha

I hope Brooke's first day of Pre-K goes well! It sounds like Gage has a cooperative teacher, and it sounds like he might have a future in fashion critiquing! LOL.

Adrorable! I didn't think kids were so fashion conscious until they were much older! Shows you what I know! You must be such a proud mommy. Good luck at pre-school Brooke! Have fun Gage!

The shirt comment is too funny! Sounds like he had a great day. Wishing Brook a great first day in Pre-K. Luke starts his first day tomorrow also. So exciting!

Very Cute!!

I had Jenna pick out her clothes a week before school started. We ironed and hung up. I'm the picky one. And yes, second graders are picky. Oh I miss teaching 2nd grade, my favorite year. Now just wait until they get to 5th!!!!

So cute, Val! Gage is such a little man. I love it. And it's nice to see that my 4 year old isn't the only one who doesn't leave the house without her gloss. :)
