Special Exposure Wednesday - My Big Girls
Look at my big girls!! 2 preschoolers and a big schooler!
We have entered a new phase in our lives. The twins are now both at preschool, and today was Emma's first day at big school! She was up and dressed by 7:15am and ready and waiting to go, partly excited, partly nervous. When we got there she was looking more and more nervous and didn't want to talk to anyone, but when we got into the classroom she just said good bye to us and got straight into the first activity. I think she takes after me - she gets anxious about things but hates people to make a big deal about it.
So cute! The uniform (size 4) looks enormous on her! I couldn't wait to go and pick her up and hear about her day. I was greeted with a big smile and "I had a super dooper fun day at school", so school day 1 was a huge success.
Ashlea had her second day at preschool yesterday and I was once again greeted with a smile so I am hoping that means she is enjoying it. She grizzled a little bit during music time - I don't think she loves being in the corner chair - but the teacher remembered that her new favourite song is "Jesus Loves Me" so they all sang that and the crisis was averted. Just as well this is her new favourite - can you imagine the entire preschool class singing Dancing Queen???
Wow - how did we get to this stage??? 2 big girls at preschool and one big girl in kindergarten. So far things are going well. And in spite of my reluctance to get up on time for school every day, I did feel a little thrill of excitement as I drove away from school with one less child for the day. Maybe there is something to this school caper after all?
Roll on Tuesday - Emma will be at school and Audrey and Ashlea will both be at preschool - my first child FREE day in nearly 4 years....WOOHOO!!!
