On Monday we bought my 7 year old her book for this last trimester of school. I opened it up to put her name in it and decided to add some sweet nothings on the inside cover. She loved it and read it over and over with a smile. Last night when we were going over her homework she told me that she loved the note that wrote in her book. She’s going to a Spanish speaking school and moved here without speaking the language.
She has done very well and I’m extremely proud of the effort that she’s put into school. She said sometimes she struggles to keep up and that she gets frustrated. She told me that today when she started to get frustrated, she flipped to the front cover of her book to read the note that I wrote her and she felt better right away. She said she smiled, took a deep breath, told herself “I’ve got this!” and went back to doing her work. That made me so incredibly proud! I had already forgotten about what I wrote, not because I didn’t mean it but because I’m just that forgetful and I’ve had a lot going on. I’m so proud of her effort and for her being the ray of sunshine that she is. She inspires me to be better and do better, I want to be like her when I grow up.
