Like Mother Like Daughter

Juliana is adjusting well to her new school. This week she wanted to experiment with the hot lunch line and she told me she ate a cheeseburger and potatoes one day and rice with peas another day. She woudn't eat a taco though. If only I had such a good success rate with meals I prepare her. At home she seems to only prefer foods that are in "nugget" form.

Juliana really enjoys getting to see Maddie every day now but I'm also happy to hear that she is making friends in her class as well. A couple of days ago Juli came home and told me that she made a new friend named Eva. She went on to tell me that Eva used to sit next to her in the classroom but now she doesn't anymore. I thought about this for a few seconds and suddenly realizing something I asked her, "Did the the teacher tell Eva to change seats because you two were talking too much in class?" Juliana looked a little surprised at first and then looked down and slowly said, "Yeessss."

Now of course I did the correct thing and told her that school was for learning and not for socializing and that she neeeded to pay attention to the teacher while in class instead of talking BUT I have to admit that I was not too upset with her because it wasn't too long ago that there were two other young girls I know of that caused many-a teacher to separate them over the course of many years. Funny, those girls looked a little like the two mom's picking up Juli and Maddie that very same day. Hmmmmm.
