Hello, I just wanted to drop you a quick note because you are K's teacher this year in second grade.
I am writing with the hope that if I explain before hand you won't turn me into Social Services.
K has decided that she is now old enough to do her own hair, choose her own outfit, and add a little makeup without any input from me.
I hope you will see that this a huge part of gaining her independence, and that it is necessary to let her have control. (This has been my mantra through the entire morning while I continually shake my head in dismay.) But as I said before, no input from mom, not even when I see she's making spikes with one of her piggy tails and ratting the other into a tight ball, and picking out an outfit that I wore in 1987.
Thank you for looking past the rats nest in her hair, and the dress that looks like Punky Brewster, and for the makeup that resembles the Joker.
