Reading Labels at School

I'm walking that fine line between scared and proud. I figured only you guys would understand what I mean!

Yesterday, there was a beach party for each grade in the school library. They had popsicles. The good news is that I've never come across a popsicle that had nuts in it. The other news, that I can't decide if it's good or scary, is that Emily read the label herself. She went up to one of the adults handing them out, and asked to look at the label on the box. She looked it over, and said it was fine.

I told her she handled it well, but next time, have the adult look at the box with her.

It's hard letting go of the control, and transferring the responsibility over to your child. I guess it's just part of the process, though.

WOW!! Amazing how wonderful it was that she was able to do that all on her own. I agree, she should have asked an adult for help but the fact that she didn't just put it in her mouth withouth looking is great!

She sounds so grown up! And that sounds so terrifying! For so many reasons! I can see why you are scared and proud at the same time, for sure.
