I broke every single chain letter I ever received as a kid. And now I think the curses are finally befalling me. Especially that one curse: If you break this chain your son will be the social misfit when he starts school.
Yeah, that one, I definitely should have sent that one off to five different friends.
Sorry, Evan it's all my fault!
Evan has been in kindergarten for about a month and a half now and things couldn't be better... academically.
Academically, Evan is a genius.
But too bad that's not was school is all about. School is about friends and recess and silly bands, all things Evan knows nothing about.
I went to parent teacher conference and was so proud of my little boy while his teacher was telling me how smart he is.
Then she talked to me about his social skills: he doesn't interact with any of the other kids, he only talks during one-on-one time with the teacher, and (this part made me cry) at recess he wanders around the playground all alone, talking to himself.
I can't say I was surprised.
I knew Evan wouldn't be as outgoing as the other kids; he's been incredibly shy his entire life. But he is the sweetest little boy I've ever known. And thinking of him being so lonely at school just breaks my heart.
Oh and school is ALL DAY!
Kindergarten is 7 whole hours long at our school, that's just nuts!
I don't really know what to do. I want him to enjoy school and make friends and get invited to birthday parties. But so far his favorite part of school is lunch. When I ask him how school was each day the only thing he tells me is what he ate for lunch, and then makes me feel his muscles.
Hopefully things will get better, I don't really know what to do. How do you make a kid be friendly?
Maybe he just doesn't want any friends because he already has the perfect friend in Meici.
(Yes Evan attends Wayside School, thus the sideways stories.)
She's so sweet and prays for Evan every night. She also prays that all the little babies in the world will only eat tiny food and and not big food.
When I was a kid I used to pray that no bright glowing angels would appear to me while I was trying to fall asleep at night.
And they never did.
God answers prayers!
