My Little Social Butterfly :):)
Kinsley received a phone call today from a friend from school. She was so excited to be able to talk to her friend on the phone. She ran upstairs with the phone and when she was done talking to her friend came and told me all about it.
(Her excitement level cannot be described accurately in this post because I cannot find the right words. She made me smile through the entire process because she has never really communicated with friends on the phone until now. I figured, why not?? If I don't make a big deal out of it then maybe she won't make a big deal out of it later on down the road. Who knows? I might be on to something..)
She let me know that she read her friend a story over the telephone and she got to listen to music from her friend's house. How fun!!
She then wanted to call everyone: Grandma, Aunt Kim, Her Cousins, etc.
We'll sit down later to go over some things to think about when using the telephone and how she should always ask permission first as well as make sure all her stuff is done first. This could wind up being a great lesson in prioritization without having to think too hard about it. On top of that she is enhancing her social skills. Double fun!!
Kinsley rocked her progress report, too!!! :):)
