At some point today, Miss Kid is participating in her very first spelling bee. (She doesn't know what time.)

Her: "They only told us about the spelling bee and gave us the list of words on Tuesday!"
Me: "Then no one has any advantage over you."

Lots of "It's okay" and "just do your best" this week. And my advice: "If you're stuck, just close your eyes and picture the word printed on the page of a book."

She didn't participate in the spelling bee last year; too scared. But this year she wants to. It's just intimidating for her. "What if I don't win?" "Then maybe you win next year."

I will have butterflies in my tummy all day...

EDIT: Called the school; the bee is at 1:30, and yes, parents are welcome.

I might go...
