Our Family

Well, our baby will begin preschool on Wednesday and I have very mixed feelings. Really, I think I want him to stay home for more selfish reasons, but I just hate to see him be sucked through the doors of school. I know deep in my heart that this is going to be a wonderful thing for our strong willed child. Ashton is going to learn to listen to other people better and find ways to make friends. We chose Ms. Wendy's Preschool because she has an old-fashioned approach, making it a lot of play and learning to be a friend. I want more than anything for Ashton to make some really great friends this Fall.

I am being so silly, but one of my biggest fears, besides his stomach being filled with butterflies, is his ability to go the bathroom without taking his pants completely off. ;) Yes, Ashton still does not want to do it the easy way(strong-willed) and just pull his pants down a bit and due his duty, he kicks them all completely off(shoes as well) and then asks for help putting himself back together. Ugh. I sure hope I am not the only Mom with this fear, but I probably am. I keep telling myself that Ms. Wendy has pulled lots of pants up and this will not be the first.

Okay, I need to try and get some sleep.

Hugs to Mommies who have babies leaving for preschool. :)

Oh friend...I feel your anxiety and worries. I'm sure they've had to deal with much worse than having to put undies back on :) I'm sure he will be so excited when he comes home that he will be talking non-stop a mile a minute to share with you all of the "firsts" that he experienced at Miss Wendy's. I love you guys!

Thanks, Jen!

I know it will be a good thing...I just don't like that my baby is growing up so fast.

Love you too!
