Tomorrow is the meeting that the director of the school I want M to go to (but not at $76k/year!) has with the school's founders. I haven't been able to stop focusing on this day approaching, so I sent an email just to make sure she hadn't forgotten about us! Here is my email:
Thanks again for meeting my little guy two weeks ago. I

> I've got a few strong forces around the U.S. lighting

And here is the response I received soon after:
To tell you the truth, I haven't STOPPED thinking about M :0) And I appreciate your tenacity - more mom's should be like you. Keep at me!! I'll keep you posted about the results of the meeting. Hang in there and enjoy the weekend. I'll speak with you soon.
I hope I haven't jinxed myself by posting this here, but her response filled me with so much hope and excitement. Please, please let it work out!!
