A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.

SHHH When you're supposed to!

 

So, Blu is continuously getting straight A's in all her exams, and in her last SAT, she scored a top 1% for reading and top 7% for math. I am delighted with her academic performance thus far. However, she keeps getting in trouble... why? She talks so much haha. She is a chatterbox! She completes her work and once done she seems to engage in conversation with students around her causing interruption. So I've developed a brilliant idea! I will be taping this pic I made on her desk to remind her of the times in which she needs to "Shhh." I love the fact that she's a chatterbox because it is an outstanding trait to have later in life. We have fantastic conversations during dinner and when we are together in general (I'm a better listener than a chatterbox so she keeps me engaged), but I need to teach her when it's appropriate and when it's not. Attempt #1 is underway!
