Playette had a pretty bad day at school yesterday.

And from the looks of it, it was a loooong, bad day.

This is her before 6pm last night.

I have so many things to share about her kindergarten experience.

In some ways, she's doing great. In others, she's struggling. It's hard to say how things will go from one day to the next.

And then there's always me. Me...the person who still doesn't cut her enough slack. Me...the person who doesn't have another five-year-old to compare her to and be able to say, "But they ALL do that!"


I haven't been posting much due to being busy and also conflicted.

How much of what I tell is really her story and not mine? Am I invading her privacy? Am I putting my children in danger? I try not to share too many intimate details, but still. I think about this stuff.

That's why I've barely written about Dez or shown him either. If I had, you'd all be well-aware that he'll be one in less than a week. Well, I guess you are now because I told you.

Time flies, yo.

More to come...

Ohmygosh, poor sweetie!!!! :-( I know what you mean about the privacy, but haven't been too worried about it. Btw, pls. tell her that Sammi wants to play again soon!!

Oh, poor little girl! I miss her so much!!

I think there's no way that her story and your story could be intertwined (this is not a bad thing). And the reason you share is because you know there are people who love her so much, but don't get to see her.

I can't believe Dez is almost 1!!! It doesn't seem like it's been that long.

The Smith Family is SO amazing and I miss and love you all!
