Harmon and I have something in common, we are incredible super nerds who love school. Today he asked me if tomorrow was Monday and he could go to school. That is when Rachel made it very clear: "I don't want to go to school!!!!!"
This wasn't just a passing moment. Every single time Chris drops her off at school in the morning she just holds onto him for dear life. She gets so upset. When I go to pick her up she grasps onto me with the Rachel death grip and won't let go. She really just is not happy there.
The funny thing about this is that she is just totally the most popular girl in the school. According to the people there the other kids think she is just a little doll. All the little girls (and a boy) from her class and Harm's class just follow her around and compete for the spots next to her. I kept hearing it but I didn't believe it until I saw it. She got on a toy horse in a merry go round type toy and 5 kids crowded to be on the horses next to her. It was pretty cute but I keep getting this fear that in a few years Rachel will be the next Regina George from Mean Girls. Of course right now this isn't an issue. Rachel is totally clueless that she is popular. She just does her thing and is completely oblivious.
On Friday she got a formal invitation to a special program to help her with her CP. I'm sad though b/c now she will be in school all day and she doesn't want to be at school. She just want to go home and be with her Miriam. I keep thinking if I give her more time she will adjust but it has been over a month and now we have to add in a second program in the afternoon. I almost want to tell Miriam: STOP don't get a new job, stay with us forever! I just wish our little Queen Bee could stay at home and be a Princess Bee for a little longer.
