Minor(!) annoyances with school already, and it's only day two. Other parents waiting for their offspring cooing and awwing and saying 'Aw, she's so cute! She's tiny!' and 'She's too wee to be going to school!' (which had a giggle-laugh-thing added at the end after she realised the small cute child was heading straight for me - hi, fellow parents, I am the mother of the Smallest Schoolkid Evah!(tm)) at IIb. (euch what a sentence. Anyhow.)

I can foresee some evil looks in some peoples' futures, at the very least.

We also got a row from the lollipop lady for crossing incorrectly. Naughty us. IIb listened to not a word said, and stood demanding lollipops throughout the whole conversation. *sigh*

why settle for evil looks when clue by fours are available?

Hmm, potentially they have seven years there, in the same class as the other offspring. I may teach IIb some choice sweary words instead, or tell her that it's alright to call someone a poohead (their current favourite word ever) if they say she's cute.

I could always smile at them, in an 'I keell you now' kinda style.

Problem is, I can see their point - she is the size of a two year old, at most. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/37483238@N00/222043034/) Confuses her, too, she gets praise for doing stuff that's easy for a three-year-old (random strangers, again), and people get protective of her because they see her as more vulnerable. But really, FFS - she has just exited the school, in uniform, perhaps they (and I) know a little better whether she's at the right age - *age* people, not *size*! - to go to school? Mutttergrumble, etc.

On the upside, I rarely go to supermarkets now, because I am becoming paranoid from all those (possibly imagined) nasty looks from folk when they see IIb wandering around under her own steam, not in a harness or seat or anything.

Can't quite bring myself to sign her up for the growth hormone thing yet, and I suspect it's because *we* would have to stick her full of needles for at least a year. For no good reason, I feel that it wouldn't even work. She produces, and reacts to, growth hormone normally, apparently (from what little the various medical types have told us about her test results), so why give her more if what she already has is having such little effect? The growth specialist was sorta vague on that point. The 'we could try it for a year and see how it goes' was not reassuring.

May have to start a rant entry later. :-) It's that kind of time, y'know?

I'll admit I didn't realise she was old enough for school myself when I saw her. Aww, bless.

Yeah, she hasn't grown much. :-/
