What I don’t always see is her watching me.
What I don’t always see is that when I go in to See’s Candy to get some of my homeschool teacher mama friends some end of the year gifts, she’s learning. Learning how to treat people. Learning how to notice.
She asks why we are getting other teacher’s presents. I explained that in other schools, the mommy’s usually get the teachers end of the year thank you gifts. When you are the teacher AND the mommy sometimes you don’t get anything and so I thought it would be nice to get them a little thank you. She says “oh”, seemingly unaffected.
This morning, the first thing I saw told me otherwise.
She’s a good student, that girl. She notices.
I am so very very blessed to be the mommy of this precious seven year old young lady.
I am reminded that I have eight eyeballs watching me ALL DAY LONG and I better live accordingly. The most valuable lessons we teach our children often don’t happen in books.
It’s the last day of school.
Tomorrow we party.
