I have finally chosen between the two Preschools for Colton. I picked the one closer to us. I was a little nervous about sending him there because this is their first year and I didn't really want Colton a part of the "experiment year"...you know what I mean? Well, I went to the Open House last Saturday and felt completely at ease. The Director knew exactly what she was talking about and had great answers for all of my questions. The school actually starts on August 13th, which is next Monday. But, we weren't planning on starting the other school until August 27th, which is 2 weeks later. The new school said it would be fine if we waited till the 27th, that a lot of the kids weren't starting until then. Plus, I don't want to pull him out of Dianne's care early #1 because she might not be ready for that emotionally, seeing as he has been a part of her life almost every day for the past three years...and #2 she probably needs the money, seeing as she is leaving for a 2 week vacation on the 26th. So, the 27th it is!
I am so excited! And Colton is getting pretty excited too! I know that he will do so well. I can't wait!
Another milestone...Colton slept in big boy underwear last night! He has been ready for months now, I think...he wakes up dry every morning. But, whenever I asked him at night if he wants to wear big boy underwear, he always hesitates and says no. Well, last night he said YES! So, I made a HUGE deal out of it...letting him know what a big boy he was! And this morning, when he woke up dry, I praised him even more! And it was a big deal at Dianne's house too!
So, all of these Big Boy decisions and milestones...it's kind of a lot on a mom! ;) But, I am enjoying it! Now I get to go school clothes shopping...along with a few supplies like a new backpack and lunchbox. I can't wait! School supplies shopping was always my favorite growing up! I will post pics as we get things!!
On to other news...Rach and Hudson are here for the weekend! I am soooooooooo excited! They got here today. I won't get to play tonight because I have class, but tomorrow night and the rest of the weekend I will! YEA! We have Lindsay's twin baby shower on Saturday, so that should be a blast! I will try and take plenty of pics this weekend!
Hope you guys have a great rest of your week and weekend!
Back to reality!
