I'm talking about the day your daughters Pre-K teacher calls because she wants to have a parent teacher conference! WHAT??? Seriously, what can a pre-k teacher really say about a child? I just didn't think i'd have to deal with this one soo soon. You can't imagine how upset it really makes a mother! My belly is in knots and i'm upset, mad, worried and everything else. Sheesh what can i say...i truly thought IF there was a problem, shouldn't i get some kind of fore-warning?? I get all her paperwork, look over it everyday and have never found a sad face..or anything other than happy faces and positive words. Why did it take her teacher TWO months to tell me there was a problem? THEN, on top of that, she said we need to meet soon, but the soonest i can meet is THURSDAY!? WHAT? Anyway, i'm so upset. It stings, when it's your child, it stings BAD! You think your child is the sweetest and smartest in her class(of course ever mom things that). BUT, when you find out otherwise, what do you say? How do you act? I cried and cried...and i was soo angry!
Anyway, i guess it's a small problem that CAN be fixed with a little work at home. BUT, i'm so mad that her teacher looks me in the face EVERYDAY and has never said ANYTHING TO ME BEFORE! Why hasn't she pulled me aside and said "Hannah's not doing as well as i'd like". Nothing negative, just a warning. SOMETHING would have been nice!
Paul will go with me NEXT THURSDAY to meet with her. I will have to remain calm, since this lady will be teaching my sweet baby for the next 7 months. I don't want to explode on her and her take it out on Hannah.
I'm in major denial. I feel like she's learning a TON. She is recognizing her letters, writing her name, knows all sorts of prayers, and i could go on and on. Sheesh, it's not like she's in high school getting ready for college or anything. I did know she'd be a bit behind b/c of her age and birthday! But, i thought that was why i had her in school. To have the one on one help that she needed to stay up to par with the older kidos.
I guess i'll know more Next Thursday, since it's soo important and taking her soo long to meet with me!
