2 years, 11 months.
On Friday, Mommy and I went to your school for our first ever routine parent teacher conference. Most of what Ms. Lauren told us about you, we already knew:
That you’re obsessed with trucks and you love to be the line leader.
But what is a bit suprising is that, at school, you never stop talking!
As for me, I was a fairly quiet kid until about the 4th grade; so I sort of assumed the same would be for you.
In fact, you’re so talkative, that Ms. Lauren told us, sort of half-jokingly, that you’re the tatttletell of the class.
When she tells another student to do something, you inform her of your classmate’s failure to comply with the instructions.
It’s not a big surprise, considering what I do for a living is very HR-based. In essense, I tattletale on adults all day long at my job in the office…
Of course, not everything you chat about in class is informing your teacher about your classmates. You also put your teacher in this situation where she is constantly having to make sense of the stories you tell her.
She hears the detailed list of cars that you and I see on the way to school each morning.
Ms. Lauren commented to Mommy and me, “Are there really that many pink trucks and SUVs in Nashville?”
It’s just that you never forget seeing one the first time and it ends up in the regular rotation of your conversation play list.
Nonetheless, you always have plenty to talk about at school. Here I thought that was just with Mommy and I at home, since a lot of the times we see you interact with others, you are shy.
Now we know, you’ve got a lot to say, and Mommy and I aren’t the only ones hearing it.
