On Monday night, we went to meet BK’s new teacher. She was a little sad at first when I told her she wouldn’t have the same teacher, but thankfully, she warmed right up to her new teacher and was telling us how excited she was before bed. I’m so impressed with her personality, she thrives in new situations rather than shying away from them. She’s not afraid to go and meet new people, to introduce herself or to make new friends. We love that side of her personality and I think Allen and I both wish we had a little more of that in us.
Sidenote: I had my wisdom teeth taken out Thursday and I was actually worried that I would miss “meet the teacher” or the first day of school. Thankfully, it was a fairly quick process and I was ready to get out of the house Monday night. Another note, don’t delay having your wisdom teeth removed they might need to be removed at the most inopportune time. We’re all just thankful it’s over and done!
Yesterday morning, she didn’t want to get out of bed. Isn’t that crazy how that seems to work? If I needed her to sleep-in she would have been up before me. We snapped a quick picture and we were on our way.
BK has been going to the same MDO program for three years now, just two days a week for a little more interaction with children her age. While I worked, she stayed home with my Nanny who would come to our house everyday. On the days BK had school, Allen would go in late and Nanny would pick her up and bring her home. Teachers don’t have much flexibility in their schedule. Yesterday, I was reminded just how thankful I am for this season, no matter how crazy our days get, no matter how many times Jud refuses to nap, or BK refuses to listen, I am blessed to be able to spend my days with them. After working and being away for the first few years, it’s something I refuse to take for granted now.
So when BK came home, we baked cookies and had a little time together while Jud talked to his toys in his swing and watched his big sister.
It was a great first day, indeed!
