It’s official! I’m little girl, is no longer so little. She LOVES her two days at preschool and if we could afford more days, we’d send her for more. I picked her up from school last week and took her to run some errands, and she literally skipped through the store. She’s made some friends and tells me how she pushes her friends on the swings and plays baby dolls with them. One day, her teacher told me that all the kids were playing with toys and Tasha gave everyone cups with pretend drinks in them. One of her standout qualities truly is how thoughtful and compassionate she is. 

On Tuesdays at school, Tasha and some other kids gets to play in a room with different toys than they play with every day. Wednesdays, they go to storytime at the local library and play at the park. 

Preschool is probably the best thing I’ve ever done for her!


Today is Tasha’s first day of preschool. I wasn’t sure if it was going to happen since there is such a high demand for preschool around here. We’ve been on 5 waiting lists since February, but most of them were 100 kids long. We got lucky and got into one that’s only 5 min away. 

Yesterday, Tasha had her outfit all picked out and chose what she wanted to take for lunch. When we arrived there this morning, I opened the door to unbuckle her car seat and she was practically hyperventilating she was so excited! 

Here’s Tasha right before we left….she picked a dress-of course! 

Just for the record, I didn’t tell her to pose…this is just classic Tasha!

Close up!


I had mixed feelings this morning after dropping her off. Kevin did too. He wanted to go to “cool” too. I’m excited for her to learn and make new friends. I’m also really glad to have some time to do things at home with only two kids, one of whom sleeps most of the day! And since she and Kevin have been fighting a lot lately…the break is a plus. On the flip side of the coin….this big step means, my little girl is officially growing up and before long will no longer care if I play with her or think I’m cool. =) Yet, it’s a needed stepping stone for her, for me, and for Kevin….look for an update later on how her first day went!
