Parent Teacher Conference

I had my very first official parent teacher conference yesterday.  As, I had been talking to them A LOT as of late, I was expecting much of the same.  I was pleasantly surprised but went in with very low expectations so it was a GREAT report.  Her teachers kept saying that she was very smart but not in the "omg your child is a genius."  More of the "she tries to trick us by telling us two different stories." Things that came across loud and clear included her "leader" personality meaning she wants the kids to play her games.  Her games include her version of catch, she holds the purple ball and they chase her but she holds the ball the entire time.  Sometimes, her shyness can prevent her personality from "shining."

One item that pleasantly surprised me is that she is doing a lot more gross motor skills like climbing and riding the bikes.  Girlfriend could probably sit down and cut out a snowflake then would run across the room and run straight into a pole.

We hit up Disneyland after the conference for our last hurrah.  My season pass expires tomorrow and I am not going to renew our super cheap pass as it only works during the week and LO is in school.  Also, I think it is getting a little suspicious that I am still passing LO off as two years old.  She spent much of the time climbing and going down the big slide at CA Adventure.  I was so proud of her!
