Sophie is visibly very proud of her first homework assignment, especially the fact that she received a “great job” sticker from the teacher. This is the assignment I wrote about here.
I hope that her happiness about the end result will make the next assignments a bit easier for her to swallow. She’s ever the rebel, our little Sophie, wanting to do things her way, and her way only.
I love that about her – but it can certainly be exasperating when she refuses to take direction. Chloe is the opposite in many respects, and much more like I was as a child. Always following the rules, wanting to impress the teachers. I’m not convinced Sophie will follow that path. But that’s ok, because she’s as cute as can be. And as smart as a whip, in her own Sophie way.
