Toynas school teacher told her today that she is very good in Drama. He also promised her a role in the next school drama show.
I was surprised that one – it took them so long to observe this skill of hers (which I have been subject to for eternity) and two – how differently we reward a skill like Drama at school vs. at home.
How I wish she didn’t have to practice Drama at home to really hone this skill!
