Parent/Teacher Conference

Tonight I had parent/teacher conference with Danielle's teachers and the transition school.  Her teachers say she is doing great, but she has this impulse to just constantly talk.  Something that a lot of the kids in her class love to do.  So that is one of the goals they are working on with her.  Then come January they are going to flip/flop her classes.  Go to junior high in the morning then the other school in the afternoon.  We will see if she can wake up that early for class work, so far it's been at 9:30 for class time, now it will be 8am.  Another transition.  But in the long run they are getting her ready for high school next year.

I don't know if I have any right in saying this but I have to put words to my feelings.  In one of my earlier posts I mentioned I went to a FASD seminar.  I sat towards the front and during this class, I was amazed at how many parents were struggling so much with their own situations that I actually felt, for the first time in a long time, how blessed I am to have already been down that road, that things are improving for the quality of life for my daughter.  But don't get me wrong, I know that there are many bumpy roads to travel but at this point in time...I can take a deep breath and exhale.  At least for right now.

Sounds like the conference was fantastic.

And it was good what I heard about the conference at the end, and the different paths the parents are taking.

You do sound like an excellent Mum overall, and Danielle is a good daughter.
