She's always landed on the shy side. Never caring to draw attention to herself. When she was telling me about the second graders performing at the PTA meeting this week and how she was excited about being on the stage and singing, I was a bit surprised.
When she told me that she wanted to wear her pajamas to school yesterday for their Polar Express party, I was more than a bit surprised.
When I learned today that she received the Principal's Award for showing self control, I was not a bit surprised. I couldn't be more proud of her.
