I chatted with one of Bel's teachers this afternoon while her class finished afternoon circle time and sang the ABC song.
Miss S. told me that Annabel asked her again about why her hands sometimes tremble. It's a conversation they've had before, but the previous explanations (genetics, biology, etc.) didn't sink in. So this time the teacher said, "well, Annabel, I guess that's just the way God made me."
Annabel said in return, "yeah, and God made ME a Princess."
Sing it, sister.
(Thanksgiving was awesome, by the way -- we did stop at a hotel on Wednesday night, but got there Thursday in time for lunch. Everything worked out fine. Sometimes I think I forget that I'm married to a guy who spends all day using terms like just-in-time, kanban, and lean. He keeps saying he wants to 5S the house. I'm afraid to find out what that would entail.)
