I know it's not August ya'll, but about a week before winter break, I had a mini revelation like..."my children need to be in school now!" So I hustled, did a few quick tours, and signed a contract at a local pre-school the day before everyone left for the holidays. I have to be honest ya'll. I've said a lot of not nice things about people who have multiple panic attacks when making the decision where to send their sweet darlins to "school" at the age of 2, but guess what....panic attacks I had when it was my turn. You just get so caught up in it all...and the next thing you know, you're worried that you are making the wrong decision about where your child will color and paint and build with blocks. Ridic! After a few internal meltdowns, we made a choice and today our big girls started "school." I keep saying "school" in quotation marks because realllllllllllllllllly....they aren't even two ya'll. I'll drop the quotes next year...ha!
They were champs this morning! Excited about backpacks and lunchboxes and cute tights with hearts! Out our door, into school, and and we walked away. Like 2.2 seconds of not knowing what was going on and then they started playing.
I left my cell number with the teacher for "just in case," but no calls yet! Woohoo! And it's your lucky day...I put together a list of all the goodies we brought, just in case you are wondering what a less than 2 yr old needs at "school."
A.) Skip Hop Zoo Backpacks and Matching Lunchies
B.) $10 Hoodies from Target to keep in their backpacks in case the classroom is cold. There are graphic prints inside the hoods! Soo cute!
C.)Utensils for lunch
D.)Tiny Toms High Tops-not necessary, but seriously ya'll...nothing cuter!
E.)Sippy Cups - just like the ones we have at home
F.)Spencer Lunch Containers from PBK.
And that's all I've got! 20 minutes until pick-up! Good lord that went fast!
***Update since original posting*** Picked the girls up. Olivia - captain of the class. Laine - cried off and on the whole time and then burst into tears when I walked in the door. Clearly my child. I was the queen of the cry and sitting on the teacher's lap for too many years in my youth. Hopefully she'll be brave next time...
