When I asked my daughter how her day was and she responded with:
“Mommy, my heart is so full and I realize its because its getting filled with love from all the people at Montessori, the art teacher, Spanish teacher, everybody I am so proud of myself and I never thought school would my favorite thing. The teachers hug me and smile and I think they really like me.”
This coming from a girl who 6 months ago was crying because she said she was “dumb and don’t know things” is incredible. No more power struggles in the morning. Just a new curiosity about the world and a love of learning that I didn’t know was possible.
