*Sigh* Meghan started her second year of preschool today. While she was gone, I sat around watching home videos from when she was a baby, blubbering and wondering how she got so big so fast.
Not really. But if I would have had the time to do that, I definitely would have cried while watching them. I still call her Baby, after which she always reminds me that she’s a big girl, not a baby. I can’t help it; I’m just not ready for her to be the big girl she is.
This isn’t going to get any easier, is it?
Last year I started the tradition of letting her choose a special breakfast for her first day of school. When I asked her this year what she’d like for her first-day-of-school breakfast, she said cookies. Cookies for breakfast? Sure. Why not? So cookies she got.
This morning she said she also wanted a smoothie, so along with two pumpkin breakfast cookies she also had a strawberry-banana-peanut butter smoothie (almond milk+1/2 banana+a few strawberries+peanut butter+ice).
Somebody else wanted a breakfast cookie, too. Not quite yet, buddy.
I know it looks like he is ready to snatch those vitamins, but I promise you I was right there. He wasn’t going to get those chubby little fingers on anything.
Fueled by her special breakfast, Meghan had a great first day. She loves school and was ready to go back. Probably more ready than I was to let her go.
There is one teeny perk that I’m looking forward to. If Luke cooperates and naps well, I should have 1-2 hours of “free time” while Meghan’s at school. It’s been a long time since I’ve had that, so I might just get to spend a little more time on the blog. If I start getting more posts up, you’ll know Luke is napping well.
I have a recipe I hope to share tomorrow, so see you then!
