We had all of our parent teacher conferences this week. Reilly’s was last night and both the girls were tonight. At Kate’s we spent sometime discussing Kate’s inability to confidently know her left from right. It was a light conversation because she is doing so well in areas that this was just funny topically to discuss.
After the conference Kate and I headed to her gymnastics class. We spoke of Shad’s and my meeting with the teachers and a couple of the things they pointed out as well as how well she is doing in class. I brought up the discussion of confidently knowing left from right. I said Kate we should continue to work on left and right and knowing which is which. Her reply was:
Well, I know this is my left (and she holds up her left hand) and I know this is my right and she holds up her right hand. I thought, well, it seems she does in fact know, but then she kept talking. BUT, when I turn around this is my left, well my fake left and this is my right, my fake right. So, when I turn this way my fake right is on my right is that right? Ummmmmmmm….. what? Well, when I turn this way I think is my left but I think it’s really my right so it’s my fake right. Right?
Ummmm… I am still not sure. Actually, I think my head is still spinning and it’s two hours later.
