There should be more humming in the world!
Tuesday, September 17, 2013
My kindergartener told me that tomorrow is a very special day. She explained her teacher is going to test them to see what they know. I told her that was probably because in two weeks I have a conference with her teacher to find out what things I should be helping my daughter learn.
I asked my dear child if there was anything she wanted me to tell her teacher at the conference. She got very sad and told me "I like to hum and sing, but I am not allowed to!" Oh my, that made me so sad for her! My cutie pie always hums and sings when she is concentrating hard on something or just because she is happy. I asked her if she could hum very quietly. She responded that she tries, but the teacher hears her anyways.
Now i realize the teacher can't have 19 kids humming and singing in her class, but it breaks my heart that she has to shut this part of herself away. I hope and pray she still does it outside of school because honestly, it makes me happy listening to her. I love,that about her.
