A couple years ago at work our team was split in two. One side went with our current manager, one would stay and do more of the same. With someone else. I was chosen to stay. At the time that wasn’t my first choice. I wanted to go with the other side. It would be the better side. Or so I thought. No reason why, just my thought. I was thinking today how happy I am that I was chosen to stay. My current managers are awesome, the team is great, and I am so grateful I wasn’t picked to go. I am right where I am supposed to be.
When we signed Sofia up for her current school, it wasn’t our first choice. There was another one. One with a two year waiting list. One that would be more convenient, one that would be better. Or so I thought. No reason why, just my thought. To my dismay she didn’t make it off the waiting list, so with our feet dragging, we went with choice number two. Choice number two is a good school, one that is fine for now, but we would keep updating our info on the waiting list in case a spot opened up at the other school. Or so we thought. We are due to renew our interest in school number one in January but I don’t think we will. I realized last night that she is already at “her” school number one. When she was introduced to her teacher I thought, oh she is older, Sofia is an active child that needs someone younger, to keep up. I was so wrong. Her current teacher, or guide as they are called, is perfect. They are a great fit as she keeps Sofia calm and focused at school. The bean has been known to give her a hug from time to time if she hasn’t seen her in a few days. Her classroom is having a holiday party with a little song and dance. They are having a secret Santa gift exchange in the classroom the week before. She has cooking class one afternoon a week. It is all working out better than expected. I have a feeling we will make the switch though once she starts 1st grade, as she would have a new teacher anyway, and a lot of kids from her school move on anyway. But right now? Right now we are happy, and more importantly she is happy. She is right where she is supposed to be.
