Smiley – Thurs 14th May 2015

By | May 14, 2015

Smiling is contagious, isn’t it? I’d defy anyone who, having seen a smiley D today, didn’t smile back.  She’s been very happy.

She’s looking forward to her birthday next week and counting down the sleeps.  I saw the ideal present for our D today, can’t wait to see her face when she opens it (assuming it’s still there when I go back).

She’s also been extremely smiley following her parents evening appointment after school.  There was nothing negative at all, from either side (well, not about D anyway) and they are very pleased with how she’s maturing (in terms of being able to tell me sooner at the end of the day what’s wrong) and – this is fab – how if she finishes her work early, she helps the child she sits next to.  Isn’t that lovely? All helping with her social skills and showing that there is a really kind D in there – which we knew anyway.

D, bless her, relaxed on a cushion whilst we chatted, reading her Minecraft book, listening to the comments and smiling a little smile.

T – thankfully – has had a better day, despite the rain.  He’s been more open to a (kind of) two way discussion and has had a little smile going on too.  A few comments directed at D but they more-or-less washed over her.

I was debating which word to use as my word to sum up our week, it could have been “ow” because Hubbie has a bad back and Dolce The Ulcer has been a painful constant for me this week (quite spectacularly bloody yesterday too) but, based on the above, it has to be:
  

That’s better than “OW”, isn’t it?

Today’s tweet for Mental Health Awareness Week was:

Your post made me smile, so smiling is definitely infectious! It’s great when you see your child take a step in the right direction and knowing that it’s right to help the person next t you if you can is a wonderful step. Regardless if it’s a natural thing or something that has been learned.

Wishing your little one a Happy Birthday and I hope she loves her pressie.
