As if I’ve spent one day of Alyssa’s life NOT being proud… but today? Oh man I’m beaming. I cannot believe all that she has grasped in this few short months at school! I especially love that every day we send her to school we send her to people who do not look at Alyssa as the little girl who won’t… she’s just at a point where she “can’t yet.” It could so easily be the other way. She could have just as easily be surrounded by people who thought “Oh, she’ll never do that…let’s just do it for her!” Instead, oh these women are just such a great group of people.
Today’s e-mail quote? “I have to tell you that out of 25 photographs, Alyssa picked 20 out of 25 pictures correctly!!!” That is TOTALLY an 80%! My daughter got 80% of the pictures correct! Gah, she just amazes me at every turn! As if that wasn’t enough for one day she did her first coloring project without help. She usually needs a bit of hand over hand when using crayons…but not today!! She had help cutting out the P. She cannot cut alone … yet! That “she will soon” attitude I was talking about? It was beaming in Mrs. L’s e-mail today when she wrote “One day Alyssa will be doing many fine motor activities independently.” Even if she never does… which I doubt 😉 … what a blessing it is that they are going into it with the attitude that she WILL! Have I mentioned I love her teacher? Yeah, yeah… I have LOL! Have I mentioned I LOVE my daughter? Yeah, yeah… I have. Man what a great day!
Well, I’m going to take our amazing little girl in for an EEG on Thursday. No worries! Hopefully it will give us a bit of insight into what is going on with her seizures. We’re hoping for no change or imporvement. However, no matter what the outcome? It’s pretty obvious her brain is working! 😉
