The assignment was for each classmate to write "a nice" adjective, in pre-printed hearts that would later be used for this project, about each of their classmates. The teacher stressed "nice" and that was smart on her part. I can only imagine the adjectives that six and seven year olds would come up with to describe their classmates. Honestly, I had a hard time coming up with 20 different "nice adjectives". And it is NOT because
My genes passed on very well to both of my girls; Elise even more so than Katie. And I can't agree with that more after seeing the following descriptions that her fellow classmates wrote in their pre-printed hearts about Elise:
|This one is from her teacher, unless she has a prodigy in her |
classroom that writes this neatly.
|I, too, am nice, sweet and cheerful and helpful...|
on a good day.
And here are a few of my favorites; traits that DEFINITELY take after me:
|Yes. She FOR SURE gets this from me!|
"good crazy" when it comes to me passing
it on to you!
I know that you are funny. I think I am.
And that's all that matters.
I don't know WHO came up with this adjective;
but it's obviously someone who has read my blog!
I love all of the comments that Elise's classmates wrote about
me her. Stay young, Elise, and stay the way you are, because if you follow in MY footsteps, these are the descriptions you will have from your "work mates" (as you so eloquently called my co-workers not too long ago), in about 30 years:
This one, as long as it's in the same context as it was
said to me, is funny. It is only because I straighten
my "currly hair". (Hi Brandy!)
This one may hurt a little more, if you are
ever in a management position. You'll
just have to suck it up, though, because
you know that are just doing your job.
I hope, and expect, that you will never have to endure this one.
Even if the employee does come to you later and
apologize for saying this for no reason.
As Elise's 7th birthday approaches, I can only hope that she gets all positive compliments about her in her life. And Tim and I, as her parents, will spend every moment ensuring that she does.
|Well, OK. So we may have to try EXTRA hard...|
We love you Elise!
