In addition to her fashion sense, aspects of her personality are equally colorful. She has recently become quite morbid. For awhile, it was an obsession with blood. She wanted to know, for example, how much blood with be involved with child birth and whether or not the baby would be bloody. When she gets a cut, she’ll squeeze it until she gets blood to come out, and then freak out because she needs a band-aid. More recently, she’s been uber curious about the timing of people’s death. She asks questions like, “Mom, when I’m a grandma, you’ll be dead, right?” Or, “Nathan is gonna die first because he’s the oldest, right?”
I spoke with her teacher today who pulled me aside when I was picking her up. He wanted to let me know that they had done a reading assessment and that Jillian scored off the charts. She had the highest score amongst all the kindergarteners and she was rated at a reading level of 5th grade. He was blown away and said that we’ll have to stay on our toes keeping her challenged. So, I guess this summer will involve lots of trips to the library.
