Last week I received a phone call from Little Prince's School. When that number comes up on the phone my heart always misses a beat, his teacher knows this and is always very quick to reassure me that there is nothing to worry about. She was calling to let me know how brilliant Little Prince is :-) Apparently they had a visitor in school, who sat in on their RE lesson, during which Little Prince asked very probing and insightful questions. The visitor asked her after the lesson who was the little boy asking all the questions, as he was brilliant :-) His teacher even said she was starting to struggle answering his questions they were getting so complex! I love these phone calls from school, I am so proud of my boy :-) And I am so grateful that he has got such a lovely teacher, who has taken the time to get to know Little Prince and who really likes him (she even said she would love to have him as her son - no chance we love him way too much!!). While I was on the phone, and Little Prince realised what we were talking about, he had a grin like a Cheshire Cat. His self esteem is growing, and he is actually starting to believe that he is just as clever as all his friends (maybe even cleverer) which after years of him thinking he was stupid, is fabulous to hear.
He also had a great report from his swimming teacher (who also adores him) he is listening to directions and putting them into practice and his swimming is improving by leaps and bounds each week :-)
