I know most of the time I brag about my little grands. This time is a little different. Here is Little Miss Mabel at two years old. We were all walking back to our cars after eating dinner while vacationing. She is way behind the rest of us. Her daddy tried to carry her. Her words for just about everything were, " I CAN do it MYSELF." We all thought she was so funny when she threw her little tantrums.
Here is what happened when we got in our cars. She was so mad because we put her younger cousin in the car seat to go back to our vacation house.
her brother loos a little annoyed, hah.
Here is a picture of her at Clown Academy. I never got around to showing you these before. Lewie The Clown and Mabel met the year before and became friends. He asked her to come to his clown show.
Now the story behind the post. Little Miss Mabel has been getting in trouble at school. She likes to socialize with the other little girls. She has been moved at circle time from sitting with her friend. BUT, when a sub was there this week, She and the little friend sat by each other. Another kindy told on them. Yesterday, she was in a little assembly and something fell on the floor. It was her cell phone. Now, she really doesn't have a cell phone. Her Uncle B. gave her one that was an old one and not being used. Well, you know you can't have cell phones at school, esp. when you are 5 and in kindergarten. They go by a color behavior system. It goes (I think) from red, orange, green, blue and purple. Purple is an excellent day, and red is a "go to the principal's office" kind of day. With that being said, she has been a purple most days but now she is down to orange this week. I can't imagine how a principal would be able to handle talking to her. I would not be able to keep from smiling or laughing. I know, I am a softie and I should take this seriously, right. Well, Miss Mabel's brother M. is so perfect at school. So was her daddy. We got called into conferences because he was an "over achiever," seriously. Her parents expect good behavior. We knew this one was going to be a corker from early on. With a name like Mabel and such a cute little face, now how could you get mad at her.
Well, tonight is a special reading meeting where the kids wear their jammies and bring their parents. Mom has a class to teach and she told Mabel she couldn't go. Well Mabel said, "That's okay because Grammy will go." So guess who is going. She wants me to wear jammies. Oh my, if I walk in and I am the only adult wearing jammies, oh my. (This is from a clown that wears a red nose and funny clothes) Just to note, her daddy has to take her brother to his football game. He has been out of town for a couple of weeks, so he does need to be there.
Hmmmmm, hoping I am not going to talked to by the teacher for my sweet granddaughter's behavior. I asked her mom to please let me know if she had an orange day or worse a red day.
Grampy asked me what I would say to the teacher. I said, I would tell her, "Just give her some love."
So wish me luck tonight. Oh, and I might add.....Grampy said it is genetic from her mom, Grammy, and other grandmother. Oh and her Aunt Heidi, too. Maybe that's why, I think this is a tiny bit funny.
