I heard these and other similar statements from Alex everyday as I picked her up. She was good and she knew it, much too much so.
Last week, I went to pick her up. She ran into the van, her backpack covering her face. Her teacher came up to the van.
"Doe she always get upset like this?" Her teacher asked. At which point I realized Alex was hiding her face to cover her tear stained face. She went on to tell me that Alex was playing to loudly with the kitchen, slamming the door and kind of yelling, so she had to turn her star. Apparently after Alex had to turn her star she began crying and continued to cry the rest of the school day.
"Oh, she has her days." I said still trying to process what was going on.
As soon as we got home Alex ran up to her room where she continued to cry. I went up with her and tried to comfort her and reminded her that her brother couldn't even hardly get ten good days in a row his kindergarten year, while she continue to sob for twenty minutes.
She finally settled down, never really talking about it much but seeming to take comfort in my words. I was worried as to how she might react to going to school in the morning, thinking I might have my first morning fight with her.
But she woke up, went off to school happy as can be like nothing ever happened and has done well everyday again since.
Ah my Miss Alex, with you it is go big or go home.
