First Day, Take 1

Today was Mia's first day of second grade.  In true fashion I had to drag her out of bed, prod her to the bathroom, force her to eat breakfast, and demand she get in the car.  
"Apathetic" is the best way to describe Mia's attitude towards school.  It's really just an inconvenience to her.  Thankfully, she's compliant enough to put up with it and is resigned to her fate.
When asked what she is looking forward to most about second grade she replied, "Nothing."  When asked what her goals were for this year she replied, "None."  And when asked who she is most excited to see she relied, "No one."
This didn't surprise me or concern me much at all.  
She is who she is - a reluctant, yet adorable Oakdale Rocket second grader.

When can this kid get into the Gifted program??? Maybe then she'll be excited and challenged!

Her little shirt is so cute! Hopefully she'll get a bit more excited as the year continues :)

Yeah -- I'm with Robin. I've met this child, and she totally needs to be in G&T. And if she IS, and you're just not wanting to brag about it, and she STILL is that apathetic.... umm... good luck with that. :-) Maybe it's just part of her "schtick." But as you say, at least she's resigned to her fate. :-)
