First Day of Preschool, Class of 2026

Ivy's first day of preschool 2012

It was Ivy's very first day of preschool, my nest was to be empty for two whole hours! but then Gray was home sick with a fever. Wah wah.

Carter stood by the front door, coat and backpack on (all of my kids would stand there with their backpacks an hour before if I let them) and I decided to jump in the shower while I had time- his bus wouldn't be by for another ten minutes."I'm going to jump in the shower real quick before you go out for the bus!" and I ran up to my bathroom.

When I was finished I called downstairs to him to go get the newspaper because Ivy needed pictures of her favorite foods- first day of school and we're already slacking on homework- and he answered back from his bathroom upstairs, "Ok, mom! I'm just putting on my clothes!" 

I'm like, "You are what?! Your clothes? Why?"

"You told me to take a shower before I got on the bus!"

LOL ohmygosh bless his heart, that kid. He "listens" without ever questioning me. I had the best laugh, I swear it was a venti's worth, and it lasted me all day. Thankfully he got dressed in time to catch the bus. And was very clean.

Ivy had a great first day. There was play-doh and they read books and went outside and to a "gym place" and they have gerbils and two hamsters and a fish tank and babies and a kid liked her "too much" so she told her teacher he was ann-oy-ing her and she made him stop.

  9. A boy who obeys like that--no questions asked--is such a blessing for a mom of four!

  10. Oh! Congratulations to Carter on being such a good listener! Ha! And to Ivy on starting preschool! My girl started a couple of months ago and is just over the moon about it. I love the momentarily empty nest, true, but I find myself wishing that i could join her at school, to play "make a big circle!" and sing the songs, and make the crafts, and see who she plays with.
    An overly long comment, basically, to say I want my cake and I want to eat it, too.
