While my oldest has entered the exciting and somewhat scary world of middle school, my baby has started preschool. That means that 3 days a week for 2 1/2 hours a day I will be...All. By. Myself.
SJ had mixed feelings about going to preschool. I tried not to make a big deal out of it and casually suggested we take pictures. Although it looks like she is posing - don't be fooled. She wouldn't sit still and smile for one picture.
Addie and I walked her to school and she seemed to be fine when we left. Sadly I completely forgot about the parent/child picnic that was being held on the first day of school (with 4 kids going to 3 schools and about 100 activities - my mind is swimming!). Feeling like a horrible mom, when I picked her up her teacher used words like "stubborn" and "contrary" to describe her behavior (she was very nice about it - and I really love her teacher). SJ came home happy, though and I later found her here:
The good news is that even though she was crying when we dropped her off this morning - her teacher said she did much better. There is hope! Just kidding. I have been a mom long enough to not make long-term predictions based on toddler behavior. Am I right?
And as for Addie - she is adjusting very well to middle school. She says it feels like it's her job.
