Alanna's first official "homework" assignment was an "all about me" paper. it had the usual basic questions, but the blank at the end was, "But what really makes me special is..." So I asked her and at first she thought about it, and then pointed to me and said, "You Mommy." So sweet, but i didn't think that she understood me, so I tried again, this time giving suggestions. She looked at me with one of those, " I just said" looks and repeated herself. So I put it down. Alanna thinks that I make her special.
