I've got writer's block. Owen starts preschool in a few weeks, and I'm supposed to write a letter to his teacher describing him. That's tough. I don't want to gush and oversell him, but I don't want to pick him apart either. And who knows what part of his current personality is his true nature and what part is average preschooler-ness. Most adjectives I come up with have the feel of pigeonholing. I hated being called shy when I was in school. If you pull my old yearbooks out, here's what you'll find for 95% of the written entries:
Great being in Mrs. So-and-so's class with you. You're sooooo sweet and quiet. Don't ever change. Have a great summer!
I just wanted to grab the book back from them and pound them over the head with it. Yeah okay sucker, how sweet am I now?
I may have had some repressed anger issues.
But back to Owen.
Any advice on how to approach this assignment?
