Conversation with you on the way home.
"Where is Jodi, Sydney and Kaleb?"
Me, "At home."
"Where is Jordan?" Me, "He's at home."
"At Aunt JOdi's house?" "Yes, Bella."...
"Do you want to kiss Jordan?"
Me, "Not so much."
"Do you want to kiss Mike?"
Me, "Ummm, no (lol)."
"Who is Jordan's boyfriend?"
Me, "Uh, Sarah."
"Who's Mimi's boyfriend?"
Me, "She doesn't have a boyfriend."
"Yes, she does. It's Sugar."
"Well, yes, there's Sugar."
You've been very emotional. Especially in the mornings and bedtime. You are still adjusting to your new schedule at preschool. It's hard. Even on Mommy. From the time you wake up, and on the drive to preschool, you repeat the agenda for the day over and over, "After I wake up from my nap, and eat my snack, and go outside, and the clock moves, you're gonna pick me up!" You have been very attached to me. Every night you beg for me to go to bed with you "for a lot" (aka all night).
I'm so impressed with the things you are learning already. I overhear you singing the days of the week. And you even memorized your first bible verse, "ofeeshans, children, bay your parents".
I started this about 2 months ago and didn't have the heart to delete it, start over. It's so sweet to remember these little details. And to see how much you have grown in so very short an amount of time. You actually have grown to really like school. You still love weekends, when you get to stay home. But you no longer cry when you have to go Barefoot Kids, even when Mom drops you off. You love your teacher, Miss Kia, and even pretend to be her at home in the evenings, teaching your class. You sing "God Our Father" at the table with your "kids" and teach them how to write their letters. It's pretty darn cute.
I'm glad you're adjusting so well. It makes my heart happy (and leaving you a whole lot easier). Kindergarten will be here before I know it (no, I'm not going to be ready). I love your little self. I love watching you change before my eyes, but I just want you to stay who you are right now. You're at that perfect age, where you know what is right, you are a little independent, but you are still my sweet, cuddly, mommy's girl.
My name is Kaci. I am a working mom of 3. Wife to Josh. Mom to Jackson, Cameron & Isabella. My life is dinner, homework, baseball, basketball, grocery lists, laundry, wine, video games, and bath time. I started this blog because I am passionate about photography and journaling, and because I wanted a place to write it all down, to rememeber little details so easily forgotten in the mad rush that is the life of a family of 5. Through my photos and words, I endeavor to capture our story.
