I didn’t mean to take so long between posts but life is starting to get very busy and I am really enjoying being a stay at home mom now. We had three full days of snow in February and spent time outside as well as several play dates; field trip supervision to the fire station and a local grocery store; and her class has started learning to read so we now have home reading every night.
I took out my sewing machine a few days ago and discovered I am still having tension problems and have too much thread on the bottom but I have left it out on the kitchen table to come back to. I am not going to give up on it as I still want to sew a bunny for her easter basket. I just need to take my time so I don’t get too frustrated.
Yesterday Ms C had a school field trip to the aquarium and unfortunately half way into the day she got sick. She ended up asleep on a bench with her teacher while I took the other two kids in my group around for the last hour of day. Supervising three kids at a public venue has giving me a new respect for parents of multiple kids. Wow is it a lot of hard work to keep them all together and all happy at the same time let alone take a single picture.
Last week C was asking my why I spent so much time at her school and I asked her if she liked that I did. She replied yes and it made me feel really good. I have been really busy with PAC business and also volunteering in her classroom. I love that I get to see her interact with the other kids and get to know her friends. I did make the mistake the other day telling her that I liked her kindergarten friends better than her old daycare friend. She was very upset with me but honestly it is true. Her old friend kept calling her names the entire time she was here for their play date last October whereas her new friends care about her feelings and are imaginative, mature, and polite. Ms C has a current kindergarten best friend and oh my goodness are they so cute together. If I were working I know I would be completely out of touch with this part of her life.
A friend of my husband is giving us their old dresser and bed frame so we will be able to replace the broken things in Ms C’s room. I am excited as her room is just decorated with bits of furniture we had from other rooms and we accidentally cracked her headboard while trying to move it around last fall. My bedroom growing up was such an oasis for me I want to make hers the best we can.
Oh and I did make the paper birds in time for Valentine’s day. Ms C loved them. So much so she was very upset that I wouldn’t let her have them right away. They are now on one of her book shelves.
