BabyGirl Meets Her Teacher

August 28, 2007 By · No Comments

Well I needed to drop off the sign up forms so that’s what we did today. You would not believe how hard it is without the internet. I’m going batty! But I did get a few things done and I’ll probably have a sparkling house by the time it comes back on. Even as I type this I keep looking down at the tiny computers at the bottom of my screen to see if they turn green, I know they won’t, company told us they wouldn’t but still hope.

Anyways, today we dropped off the forms and while we were in the office it sounded like she wouldn’t be able to do school after all. I was really hoping they’d say they could find a spot. “Ma’am we don’t have any openings for afternoons.” My heart plummeted, I knew they had nothing for mornings last week and the only thing left was afternoons.

“Oh, okay,” I looked sadly at BabyGirl who happened to be playing with a marble toy singing, “I’m Going to School, I’m a big girl now,” over and over.

That’s when another lady spoke up, “Why not put her in my class?” My ears perked up at first, was this a joke or was I really hearing this. I didn’t want to get my hopes up.

“Are you sure,” replied the lady that had just told me they were booked, “you already have 14 in your class.”

She eagerly shook her head and smiled at BabyGirl, “Oh I’m sure.” BabyGirl, which had no clue she was being discussed about at all was still singing and swinging her half-ponytail in the air. “How about that? Do you want to be in my class?” Asked the sweet teacher that had just made both of our days without even knowing it.

“BabyGirl, this is going to be your teacher.” BabyGirl stopped singing, looked up, smiled and ran to hug her new found friend. Oh success, and now all I need to do is prepare myself to let her go.
