May 18: Daddy/Daughter Date Night

Last night Daniel took Audrey to see a local production of The Little Mermaid.  She got to go on this special date with Daddy because of her improved "report card" at school. 

Even though it is just preschool, they send home progress reports at the end of each semester.  When Audrey got her report after first semester, she had several areas marked with a 2 (on a scale of 1-4).  They were things like "shows self confidence"  and "responds well to changes in routine" and other such things.  Everything that was marked with a 2 had to do with Audrey's confidence and independence (or lack thereof).

But since this day in late January, Audrey had been doing a hundred times better at school.  No nervousness, no tears...she has been like a new girl these past few months.  On her report card, all of the 2s had been changed to 3s and a lot of the 3s had improved to 4s.   I am so very proud of her for changing her attitude, being brave and learning to love going to school by herself every day!

Back to the show, Audrey was obviously a big fan.  When I asked her what her favorite part of the show was, she said without hesitation, "Ursula!"  Those of you who know Audrey know she is a big fan of princesses.  But she is also a big fan of the bad guys in most movies.  Ursula, Jafar, Mother Gothel, Scar, the queen/witch in Snow White...Audrey loves them all.  Not sure what that says about her!
