First Week of Preschool
Actually, our first and second week are only one day. WOW, what an emotional rollar coaster. THANKFULLY, all went FABULOUS!!! I followed the advice to make her first drop her off a QUICK process, before she had a chance to get upset about me leaving and it worked great. I, however, didn't handle it very well....the tears started flowing before I got down the hallway. (Note to self. Always wear sunglasses on the first day of school.)
"Bug" ate every bite of her of her lunch. We sat down and "took her order" at dinner, the night before, and then I packed it up the night before.
This Fit and Fresh Lunch System I bought at Target was a HUGE helper for packing her lunch. It has a flat ice pack that fits in the center to keep her food cold and then the small containers fit in on top. Perfect for her Scooby Doo lunchbox. Wednesday is her second day of preschool. Its "Wear Your Favorite T-shirt Day." Bug wants to wear the princess t-shirt Pepaw bought her in Galveston. Funny, she has tons of cute t-shirts but that is her favorite. I LOVE it! (The bummer part is that when daddy was painting this weekend she brushed up against the wall. Favorite t-shirt now looks like ratty old paint shirt. She wants to wear it anyway. Ugh..one of those mommy moments where you have to grin and bear it!) They have also asked her to bring something that starts with the "M" sound. Bug has decided to bring Muffins. I love that the things that start with an M conversation has her pointing out all the "M's" she sees. So exciting to see her mind at work. I love this mommy stuff!!
