A friend once told me that her greatest hope for her son is for him to be "normal." He wouldn't be teased, things wouldn't be too hard for him and that he could roll with it. I didn't fully comprehend what she meant at the time but I understand what she meant now. You want your kids to struggle but not too much. Just enough so they have empathy and are generally not a jerk. While my greatest hope for LO is to be a plumber and lead a relatively stress free life, I can't help but hope that she is just the right amount of eccentric. So I was pleasantly surprised when a teacher sent me this video. I like the way she uses the whole classroom for her song.
