My goodness, I grow ‘em independent. So independent, it’s why Jordan got moved into the 2 1/2 and 3 year old classroom. They knew she could hold her own… But unfortunately, her teachers will have a lot of “breaking” to do. Jordan has ruled the roost with her previous teachers. Now she has to listen and follow instructions more. Her class is bigger. The kids are a lot older (a number of the kids are already three years old). Many of the kids are potty trained. It’s kind of overwhelming to see her around these kids who seem SO much older. So things are going to change for Miss Boo.
This past month Jordan has turned the “two year old thing” up a very large notch. I build my kids loud and strong. I can’t complain about that. She also started to hold her own a little better with her brother. Those things I’ve never seen before — little shoves, little taps and annoying brotherly things — are now being verbalized (or tattled) by Jordan. “Mom! Cameron hurt me!” Her brother isn’t getting away with anything anymore.
Her swimming teacher today said Jordan would probably do better in the non-parent involved swimming class where older kids are taught… Since the Mommy or Daddy vs. Jordan experience isn’t going very well these days. She is just THAT independent. But we love her. And darn are we proud of her. She’s talking, she is trying to do EVERYTHING on her own. She’s turning into a strong-willed, confident little person and I couldn’t be prouder. (Or more exhausted)
