I don’t know how I neglected to post about my baby going off to school last November, but I suppose the holidays got me distracted. It was super hard to say good-bye to him, but he loved it, and it was only for a few hours a day. He was so ready.
Everyone continuously said I must have a ton of time to myself now. To be clear, with three kids, at three different schools, with three different drop-off times, and three different pick-up times, there wasn’t enough time to do anything. I had to be at a school just about every hour of the day, making it hard to give naps, prepare or even serve food, use a bathroom. You could forget about getting gas, stopping by a store, or eating anything. I was stuck in the weather without a break all day.
I was just glad my preschooler wasn’t at school ALL day and we could still spend a lot of time with each other, even if it was at various schools. He had a great teacher, and started working on the skills he will need for next year.
Looking forward to another fun year of preschool!
