We usually don’t repeat our Featured Blog – that, after all, would take away from the excitement. But on January 16th, Nie is Back! (It doesn’t get more exciting than that.) So in celebration, we’re featuring Stephanie Nielson’s blog, The Nie Nie Dialogues, again. If you aren’t familiar with Stephanie’s story, visit her blog this week to get to know this amazing mother. Welcome back online, Nie!
Learning to Write
Emi is ambivalent. She is five years old, losing her baby-fat and gaining the responsibilities of a kindergartener. At school she loves the thrill of being in "K," though she is anxious over the newness of it all. At home, she revels in her status as an older sibling even as she is bitterly jealous about having to share me with her brother.
