This says, “Mommy, I love you for who you are. It’s snuggle time.” Can you decipher it?
So, this would be the first thing I’m grateful at the moment.
This was also the first week of Kindergarten! A new world of adventures for her and a whole 6 hours during the day for me. Life begins at kindergarten for me… I have big plans.
And the first two days went great even though she made a huge play for home-school. Her last, best attempt at swaying us to keep her home from school was a list of things we could do on the days she didn’t go. She kept handing these to us before bed… as follows:
It says: Tomorrow. and underneath School is crossed out. The things we would be able to do were: fun, swim, computer, stretch class, snuggle, mom time, dad time, nap time and drawing time. (She was pretty smart putting that nap time in there.)
And for Friday: School crossed out again. Treasure hunt, bury treasure, bury time capsule, stretch class, nap time.
Saturday: Poop, wear diapers poop, be baby and poop, eat poop, (crossed out school) nap, mom snuggle, dad snuggle
Clearly her I.Q drops into the “Poop as high hilarity” levels on the weekends.
And once again, when life gets in the way of blogging, I find my way back with a Gratitude post. I’m so grateful for a school that we love, she loves and where she is safe, happy, inspired and appreciated for who she is.
“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
