it was perhaps the longest morning of our lives... M began preschool today. In past years with the older children I have always opted for morning preschool/kindergarten schedules. For a change we went with the afternoon schedule... BIG mistake! Perhaps every morning will not be like today but I have never seen M so excited for anything. It was a good thing that we had PTA meetings and grocery shopping to keep us busy until 11:30 - but the time between then and 1:00 seemed to go on and on and on...
She got herself ready this morning in her "banana dress" and even did her own hair - which, being the wonderful and accepting mother I am, I took her to CostCo and PTA meetings with her spazzy hair and 3 mismatched hair dealies (the big flower included). Then, being the neurotic mother that I ALSO happen to be, I fixed it prior to taking her to preschool! She seemed to have a good time and will certainly not have any issues returning on Thursday! I think the biggest issues will be the days she doesn't get to go!
On a completely different subject - have you ever asked your children what they would do if all of their friends were jumping off of a cliff? I found out today... or rather, I found out what T would do even if all of his friends were far too chicken to jump off of the cliff. The YM/YW went repelling for this evenings' activity - only a handful of the boys were able to make it down the cliff, and of course most of the girls did just fine.
oh yeah, the pants issue - T did mention how proud he was of himself that he was able to make it down the cliff with his in a clean and dry condition... a little scary 'eh?
