It turns out I’m the kind of woman who gets something in her head, makes a decision and does it that day! So on Tuesday, I decided to go to the preschool down the street from our house and see if anyone had dropped out of the program. Sure enough the lady said that there was a spot….so, I signed him up right there! His first day was yesterday, and he loved it! I told that I would be working in the classroom, but that it would not be for awhile…he said “that’s ok mom, I like to be by myself there.” Basically “mom, it turns out I really don’t need you” 🙂 I know that’s not what he was saying, but for a momma’s boy, I was happy that he enjoyed this preschool!
I did tell him that on the days that he did not have school, that we could do “homeschool”:) It turns out I’m fun! His favorite are the science projects. Here is one of the bubble projects for B week.
So now you ask, “what will you do with your time, now that you have three days with no kids?” Are you kidding me? I have plenty to fill my time with 🙂 I think first things first though, I need to organize my house!!!! So if you see me pinning a bunch of home organized pins, ask me if I’m actually using them!
Having the Boy in preschool, has also made Mr. English a little more comfortable with the idea of me being a Brownie Troop leader…I think! My first training is this coming Tuesday night. I will keep you updated!
The Kid, two weeks ago, came home and told me that she received an award that is given out to students who are seen doing good! If you get ten of them, you get a prize from the principal! Well, being that the Kid is the kind of girl who likes to follow all of the rules and win awards, she gets very proud when she is honored for something:) I asked her what she did to get the award. She said that there was a girl who was new to the school and so the Kid decided to show her around school and let her know where everything is. I was impressed, not surprised though! I asked if the principal (the one who gave her the award) saw her giving the girl a tour….she said no she told her! I know it sounds like I’m hard on my kids, I’m not really…this is me just talking about it with you:) I told her that I was proud of her for finding the need and filling it!
I do hope that even though she loves helping others and receiving recognition, that the desire to help wins out over the latter:) What similar qualities are you trying to foster in your kids?
