The pretty one

Dan and I had our first parent-teacher conference yesterday. We went in nervous. Kinda like being sent to the principal's office. I felt on the edge of my seat as though I was abou.t to be evaluated on my parenting by a "professional". Thank goodness, Red's teacher is a blessing from heaven and a complete doll.

We chatted like old friends. Rolled our eyes together at Red's crazy antics.

Basically we found out Red like to talk. Shocked anyone?

Also, to Dan's dismay she informed us that Red's biggest problem is she is pretty. So pretty in fact, all the boys love her and beg to sit with her. This will be her biggest challenge in school. She bats her eyes and cocks her head in that oh so coy way she has and poof....she gets her way.

Damn. I wish that had been my problem.

Lucky litte redhead.

She is a beauty! I wish I would have had that problem, too! Merry
Christmas and Happy New Year.

She certainly is a lucky girl. I guess you guys have some stressful times awaiting you when she hits those teenage years!
