Hi my name is Shawna.

I got to enjoy a trip to Target with my sweet 7 year old. While we were there he told me all about 2nd grade. My little boy was so excited to tell me that the gym teacher called him by his name. Blaine is a very shy boy and for his gym teacher to call him by his name is a big deal. When I was subbing at the school I realized that you only know the kids names that are loud and in trouble. I made it a point to know the quite ones because they are just like my little Blaine. I remember thinking I was really cool if a "cool" teacher or student knew my name. I am going to make it a point to start calling people by their names! It may just make a little kids or adults day.


  1. Isn't it great when your kids really open up and tell you stuff? I miss that!

  2. This is a beautiful post. We tend to forget how much something like addressing someone by their first name can help someone's self-esteem.
