On Bella's first day of First Grade we had the following conversation when she got off the bus:
Bella: "I was on the behavior chart today."
Me: "Really? Already? Why?!"
Bella: "Because I was talking too much and not listening enough."
Me: "Oh...that's too bad."
Bella: "It's no big deal, Mommy. Tomorrow is another day and I get to start all over again."
I most certainly didn't teach her that. She was SIX! But she figured it out. I told both her teacher and the principal about that conversation. THEY were impressed. I still tell that story; I think it defines my girl to a T.
Bella still is chatty. I cannot, for the life of me, fathom where she gets that from. I texted this to Bella the minute I saw it. She laughed because she knows herself very well.
Let's all follow her lead today, shall we?
