Something funny about my Gillian

So as most of ya know, my Gillian is quite the handful.
Being she was 4 months premature, pretty much everyone all her life has been doing whatever she wants. And yes, I have suffered because of that-I am now having to teach her that in life, you CANNOT have everything you want WHEN you want it. Sigh.
Anyway, but along with that comes something funny. Here she is now, in first grade and there all day. As I was talking to the Asst. Principal today, She was telling me how ALL the yard duty ladies know Gillian now. Well so do the principal and the asst. principal. ALL these folks are keeping an eye on her . Apparently at lunch and at recess, they keep a good watch on her and walk around with their radios saying "Gillian is over by the Multi Purpose room-I got her" or whatever. I just found that so funny. With her sensory issues, they sort of have to work around her needs, not necessarily giving into them all the time, but to help her adapt slowly to things, etc. Kind of hard to explain, but she certainly gives us a run for our money.
This is her in her new class on Monday.

Your such a good mom! That is so good to know that her school is willing to do so much for her. But, how could anyone not...Gilli is very addictive to be around.
