I just want life to be easy and beautiful for her.
Today, I picked Neve up from preschool and as she was getting in her car seat, I noticed she had a tutu on (hidden by her tunic). I said oh that’s a pretty tutu , were you supposed to give it back ? she looked down and then burst into tears (obviously very tired). After I asked several times why she was crying, she said, I forgot to give the tutu back !
Oooo Thank all of the gods!!... after all of the emotional three-year-old mood swings and difficulties we’ve had to deal with in the past couple of weeks, I wasn’t ready to deal with a deliberate tutu heist!!
Seriously though, the age of three is an emotional, dramatic mystery that I cannot even begin to solve or explain. It makes me stop and really appreciate beautiful moments like this even more. Again, I just want life to be easy and beautiful for her.
First full week of two day preschool in the books! Lucas is loving it and when we are driving home in the car he always asks to go back. This makes my heart happy. The teachers are amazing and have created books where they put photos and captions about what they are doing in the class so that even though we are not there we are apart of the experience.
Teacher M wrote: On Lucas’ first day of school he was so excited, he set about playing with his hat and backpack still on! Lucas visited a number of centres in the classroom- the large school bus, the play-dough, and train tables. He and some other children made “cupcakes” using colourful pompoms in our home centre. Outside Lucas spent time in our outdoor kitchen and pushed his three babies in a stroller. When his mother met him at the gate she asked, “did you have a good day?” Lucas replied, “I made friends!” That response brought smiles to everyone’s faces. Welcome to preschool Lucas.
