I’m in a school daze…

So this is just one of those post that I thought might not ever come. The day has finally come where PK has started pre-school! Both of us couldn’t be more excited. She’s excited to play, I’m excited to have some quietness in the morning during Birdies nap time. Or at least a small reprieve from craft time/game time 24/7.

I’m pretty sure that this is par for the 4 year old course, but PK is spastic busy ALL DAY LONG, like crazy busy. The girl needs constant interaction, bouncing from one activity to another, leaving a hurricane of mess in her wake. Honestly, I’ve never seen anything like it.

I’m so excited to get a few hours a week of piece and quiet (or at least a bit quieter)…

Don’t get me wrong, I love having her home most of the time, and know these days are numbered. I understand that someday I’ll wish I had these days back. But honestly, we’re a much better team when we have some time apart. She goes to school for only 9 hours a week, but it makes such a difference with her (and my) attitude for the other 159 hours she’s home with me.

Above photo is typical PK making a funny face so I can’t get a good picture. Whatever. She’ll regret it some day when this picture flashes up at her wedding reception as her “first day of big girl school” shot.

    re: spastic busy — Don’t have a 4-yr-old yet, but I don’t think it’s entirely normal. But, isn’t normal boring? | re: 159 hours — impressive math | re: PK pics — Very cute first pic. Funny second pic with corresponding wedding day slideshow threat. | All around good posting work here, designHER. [Ah]

    My oldest is now in 2nd grade, my youngest a month into Kindergarten.

    I’ve yet to reach that point where I wish I had those other days back. I’m not sure if I ever will. To everything there is a season and I had my season. I’m fully enjoying this new season.

  8. What will you do with those newly found 9 hours of quiet time. I would nap right along with Birdie, but I tend to be a bit lazy.

    She’s adorable!

  9. I can’t recall ever meeting a young’un so confident as to wear an animal print dress to school with mismatched clogs on the first day.

    You’ve done a good job Momma!
