It’s hard to believe that my first baby is already in Pre-kindergarden. Madelyn started school on Monday at St. Paul’s Early Childhood Learning Center. She will be going five mornings a week. She was slightly apprehensive in the morning but was quite fired-up about her new backpack and polka dot glitter Converse. She finished her first day with the exclamation of “It was AWESOME!”. She didn’t have a ton to say other than that. Her teacher is Ms. Bridget and the teacher’s assistant is Ms. Jackie.
Thomas started preschool at St. Paul’s today. He will be going two mornings a week. His teachers name is Ms. Jennifer. He was attempting to put on a brave face this morning at drop-off, but I could tell he wasn’t feeling all too brave. He was most excited about his new backpack. He spared Mama the tears at drop-off, but did report that he cried a lot because “I missed my Mama and Daddy and Caroline”. He finished with saying he was happy too. When I walked into his class to pick him up, he was happily playing dress-up (sporting a cool cowboy hat and a pearl purse).
Here’s hoping that all the fun will tire them out enough that I can get in a quick nap.
