I'm not quite sure the Little Ballerina is going to make a career out of dance. I'm thinking she may be better suited for boxing. You see, for the past two weeks she's been coming home from school with more "Yellow Days" than green ones. She even earned her first RED day for not listening during the library lesson. And not just one, but two in a row! The next day her behavior calendar was red also. This time the note read, "Please keep your hands to yourself." YIKES! Sounds more like a boxer than a dancer, doesn't it?
Her teacher now wants to set up a meeting with the guidance counselor hoping that she can provide us all with some "fresh ideas." Seeing as it's the end of May, and school is out in five weeks she better be pretty darn innovative. Because the Little Ballerina has already checked out for summer vacation. If she were still in preschool, she'd be done at the end of this week. This school year is dragging on too long for her. She told me, "I quit Kindergarten!"
I welcome the guidance counselor's ideas, but I can't get this image out of my mind.
Yep, Emma Pillsbury has ruined my faith in guidance counselors. I'm going to sit down in her office staring at her. Wondering if this is the moment she's going to bust out in song. Plus, I've spent the whole weekend trying to guess what song it will be. I'm thinking since she's freakishly shy that she'll probably just have this piped in through the speakers.
And that is why I've been taking LB out in the early evenings and having her run the dunes in true Rocky fashion. Wish me luck!
