So Bianca started fourth grade two weeks ago. This year is starting off much better than last year. She already loves her teacher, Mrs. Lloyd. Bianca comes home excited every day, telling me the projects they're working on and even about finishing up her homework. There are also a lot more boys in her class this year. I had a feeling fourth grade was going to be the year that the boys started catching up with the girls. For the last three years, Bianca's gifted class has had maybe five boys tops. This year it's half and half.
When I went to pick Bianca up from school yesterday, she got in the car and said, "Mom, I think a boy likes me."
I said, "Really? Why do you think that?"
"Well," she continued, "George said he wished every girl in the class would explode except for Bianca."
I laughed. I guess it could mean that.
