Yesterday was a big day for Caitlin. Off we go to School, well playschool. She was really excited and ready to join her sister in the school day routine. (Well on Monday and Wednesday anyway) She was also excited that Daegan would be there and Ally too. Caitlin was really good when I dropped her off and she told me she had a good time. She would later tell her dad it was bad, because one of the other girls wanted her mommy. (She’s very sensitive to other peoples emotions, and always wants to help make you feel better). But she survived the three hours and this morning asked if she had playschool today, so that’s a good sign.
But how did this happen, when did I get two kids old enough for school?
I know it’s only playschool, but still before I know it Caitlin will be starting grade 1. With Deanna in Grade 2 already, and Caitlin doing pre-school, I know I have truly grown up. I am a school mom and that’s okay with me!
So we celebrated the school day with some playtime and made cookies with my cookie press. Then decorated them with colored icing and sprinkles. I also tried out a new perogie casserole dinner. I have discovered that I actually enjoy cooking and baking, a task I avoided at all costs for about the first 7 years of our marriage. And I’ve realized that if I just give cooking a try I can be good at it. Although I do have a rib bone story that I swore was Karma telling me not to cook, but that’s for another time. Anyway Deanna and I have decided that everyday after school, that she will help me make something, because I want to make sure that my kids know how to cook and bake, and be safe in the kitchen. Plus it will give me some quality time with my oldest daughter who I am certain is growing up too fast and often gets left to fend for herself, so I can nurse the baby.
