We have a preschooler. Um how’d that happen?

1st day of preschool

It’s been about a month since I’ve been back at work.  A month since waking up with both of my girls and nothing but fun to be had on our agenda every day. A month since the occasional (and somedays more often) toddler tantrum on the kitchen floor. A month since my daily wardrobe of workout clothes paired with no makeup. I definitely miss it. But we’re onto a new stage. The preschool one.

The first two weeks were kind of a bust dropping Lilla off in the morning. She’d break into the ugly cry as soon as I started my goodbyes. As I walked away waving and smiling trying to reassure her, she stared at me through the window with tears streaming down her face. Worst. Feeling. Ever.

But two weeks later we’re in a much better place. Lilla smiles when I drop her off. We make silly faces at each other in the window. And she’s giddy when we pick her up. I’m excited for all the new stuff she’s about to learn. I think it’ll be a great match for her curiosity. She’s turned into such a little person. She cracks us up day in and out. Case in point. Here’s a list of her latest quotes.

Touching her eyelids in the morning she looks at me and says, “Mommy I’m putting my toncacs in just wike you.” I ask her “Your contacts?” She replies, “Yea, my toncacs.” 

Walking to preschool she says, “Mom we sorgot to bring a book!” I say, “I didn’t know we were supposed to sweetie.” Her reply, “Dat’s okay, it’s my on purpose, not your on purpose.” I say “You mean fault?” She says, “Yea, sault.”

After her first foray with Shredded Wheat Cereal she says to Jon, “Daddy, I wike Cheddar Weeps!”

Taking a sip of my water that’s been sitting out all night. “Ugh, Mommy this water is soggy.”
