Noah and Mia started school this week (preschool, daycare, whatever you want to call it). They are both loving the playtime and being around kids their own age. If you ask Noah what his favorite part is, every day he’ll tell you “naptime!” The first day he didn’t sleep during naptime, and he woke up Tuesday morning still exhausted. It was a struggle (haha, at the time it felt more like WWIII) trying to get him out of pajamas, but by the time we were ready to walk out the door –later than planned, of course– he was fine. Guess what day 3 was??? Pajama day! We all laughed at the irony of that one. Days 2-5 he took a good long, much-needed nap, thank goodness. We celebrated the first day, and later the first week, with a trip to Baskin Robbins, where Noah pointed out the have 32 flavors, not 31. Gotta love it.
Joshua and Jacob have spent this week with the home daycare provider that has watched the big two since Noah was 8 months old. Thankfully, it was not their first week also; they’ve been visiting her a few days a week for the past month or so. That’s going well, by every measure I’ve got: Ms. D enjoys having them, they’re no more or less fussy on post-daycare evenings/nights, and they’re drinking their milk just fine.
My own classes don’t start till tomorrow, but I’ll be optimistic and say we might be able to pull this off.
