Keyana's maternal grandma ( We call her Grandma Linda so that is what we shall refer to her from now on ok?) talked to me yesterday while we were at another of her pageants. (She won! Wee Miss Pretty in Pink...lol) Seems Keyana's Pre-K teacher nabbed Grandma Linda the other day when she went to pick Keyana up to talk to her about Keyana's behavior in class. You know that talk..."Are you XXX's grandma?" Gulp! Well it seems our little angel isnt laying down for nap appropriately and is getting up and down during seat time. She wanders around the room and talks too much which is interrupting other children. Reminds me of Jamie to be honest. They dont expect them to actually sleep at nap time but they are supposed to lay there quietly. She is popping up and wandering around. Wont listen to her teacher. Gma Linda is asking for our assistance in toughening up on her and also making sure she knows that we expect her to mind her teacher and listen to grown ups. Of course we will do that. She also seems to be having a bit of trouble with learning her letters and phonics and such things. They expect so much so young these days. I have bought two learning toys that deal with letters and sounds - one for my house and one for hers. I will work as hard as I can with her of course. As we all know, my kids had attentional problems. It wouldnt surprise me a bit if she inherited some. I seriously am thinking about suggesting to Linda that she request the school to test her...or I am thinking of asking my therapist to take an informal look at her for ADD and then go from there. I do not see any signs of bipolar in her at all. I think the genes crossed with the boys. Jamie got the bipolar side and Cory got the ADHD side...maybe. Of course, it could just be that she is a young 4. She just turned 4 in June. She is just starting to be much more outgoing and not as shy. Part of that is due to all the pageants...lol. She has learned she can do more by herself and is not an extension of us so it may be that she sees herself as more grown up...I dont know. 3 months ago she couldnt go on stage without momma, now she can go up there like a pro and strut her stuff and turn and pose and do all of it like she is much older. Maybe that has caused her to act like she knows it all everywhere else too. Cory has told her several times over the years that she had better behave for her momma and her grandma and he better not get calls saying she was acting up at school or he was going to tan her hiney. Good girls act like good girls and he wants a good girl. She really wants to please him so she always says she will be good. He says he is going to have a long talk with her and threaten to go to her school and make her behave. That might do it.
