SJ looks forward to picking EK and Rosie up every day...
but EK has had a hard time transitioning home
after a long day at school.
She has no desire to answer any questions or talk to either of us
(she actually sits silent and eats the rest of her lunch) LOL.
SJ is a pretty good sport and talks to EK anyway. :)
Yesterday I was a little fed up with the attitude
and gave her a little talking to as well as upped her bedtime~ 7pm.
I jokingly said if she didn't come home a little happier,
she might not get to go back. (Bad momma!)
WELL today she was a totally different girl when we picked her up.
She was SO excited to tell me she chose a book from the library
and other things about her day.
I'm trying to decide if it was a fluke
OR my inspirational talk worked
OR the extra 30 minutes totaling a whole 12 hours of sleep
made the difference...
I'm thinking the sleep was it!!!
As soon as the girls came in,
they went straight to the sunroom to start playing together~
I mentioned to EK since she was in such a better mood,
she could work on the computer while I made dinner~
SJ loved watching so she can work tomorrow~
I started writing EK a letter in a Talk to Me Journal yesterday.
She was so excited to come home today to read what I had written.
I am using some lessons from Morning Message
and giving EK a way to work on reading and writing
for a reason each afternoon.
Sometime the first week of school
I asked her if she LOVED school or liked it~
She liked it.
Tonight as I was making dinner
she spoke up and announced~
Mom, I LOVE school now!!!
Thank you Mrs. Gurley and Mrs. Strange
for giving my sweet EK a wonderful K experience!!!
