I still can't believe I'm on the parent side of parent-teacher conferences! I mean, #1 is only in preschool three days a week, but still. This is getting real.
We were pleased that he seems to be doing well, and learning all the things that I probably learned in kindergarten or first grade. My husband commented, accurately I think, that we are pushing young kids so hard these days, but then not pushing high school kids enough, academically at least. The whole idea of having kids in school terrifies me for around a million reasons. I sort of want to stay on our 1-3-5 sweet spot forever.
But I can't. So it's nice to hear that he is doing well and I'm so grateful for his school, his teacher, and his love of learning. I think the first experience with school can form a kid's opinion of school and learning in such a way that it affects their outlook and opinion of learning well into the future. I'm so glad #1 loves school!
