This week marks Addison’s first full week of kindergarten, but also holds some change for Samantha as well – her first week in “green” room. Green room is the 3-4 year old room at her daycare and a wonderful change for us all because of her amazing teacher, Maryann. Not that I didn’t like her teachers before – I did – but Maryann is amazing.
Day one went great for Sam, but day two gave us something we aren’t quite used to dealing with – a bad report for Sam. Apparently she didn’t have on her listening ears and had to go to time out not once but twice. We’ve had days here and there but usually, we get glowing reports from her teachers, so we were surprised.
Before leaving this morning Jay reminded Sam to be a good girl, and I reiterated the point with her in the car on the way to school, adding that there would be no TV tonight if she acts naughty again. She agreed that she would be good and be a good listener.
To seal the deal, I said, “Sam, isn’t it SO much fun to be a good girl at school?”
She said, “Yes. But it’s also fun to be bad.”
I have a feeling she’s more like her sister than we expected.
