Birthday parties

The Kiddo was invited to her first non-family birthday party this weekend.  It’s for one of her classmates in pre-school.  It should be interesting since the time is right about when she would normally go down for a nap if it were a school day, so I plan on letting her stay up a little […]

Picture Day

It’s picture day at her preschool today.  They did this earlier this year back in the spring, and those pictures turned out pretty well despite the fact that we totally missed the announcements about picture day and she wasn’t wearing anything special that day.

Long weekends can be rough

for the Kiddo when she has to go back to daycare after spending such a long weekend with us.  Moreso when she was sick for part of the weekend. She was NOT happy about me leaving her at school today.  Poor girl. I’m sure she was ok within a few minutes though.  Otherwise we would […]
