This was Ave on her first day of preschool. She has been going three days a week for 2.5 hours a day and loves it. There are 12 three and four year olds in her class, 4 girls and 8 boys. She is making lots of new friends, she usually can't remember their names...but tells me how much fun they have going on pretend bear hunts and dino digs. On the first day of class, each kid was told to put something they love in this brown paper sack and write 3 clues to help their classmates guess what's inside. She brought her Snow White doll, since she is still obsessed with all things princess. I was a little apprehensive about the first day. Would she cry hysterically when I tried to leave? Not this kid, Miss Kim opened the door, she said "Love you Mom" and ran right in with the other kids. Greyson and I ran a few errands, and I was so excited to pick her up to see what she thought of her first day. She was all smiles. When we got in the car I asked her what they did and if she learned anything...her response.."I don't know Mom, I can't remember." Day two, I asked her the same thing and she had a little more to say. "Mom, today a boy tried to kiss me!" Definitely not what I was expecting to hear. I asked her why a boy would try and kiss her, she said, "Mom, he thinks I am beautiful!" She said she was glad Miss Patti rescued her and told the little boy, there is NO kissing allowed at preschool.
