Preschool, day 1

Today was Cady's first day at Summer Preschool. She is going two days a week for three hours each day. I wasn't sure how her first day would go since transitions tend to be hard for her, but I'm happy to report that she handled it really well. We stopped off for some lunch before I dropped her off. We arrived a few minutes early and mingled with some of the other parents and their kids. Then the doors opened. Cady walked in and went right to the playdough table. She sat down with a group of kids and got busy. She hardly noticed when I said good-bye. When I came to pick her up three hours later she seemed content to stay and play for a few more hours. The other kids, were doing the "mommy!!" squeals and running towards their moms. Cady? She just kept playing. As we were getting ready to leave the lead teacher came up to me and said, "You are Cady's mom? We wish all of the kids could be like her. She is a really sweet girl." What a great compliment. On my way out the door the assistant teacher said, "Cady did a really great job today. She is one sweet girl!" I'm so proud of Cady!

There's not much to this video except to show you how big Coben is getting and how squeezably, mooshy cute he is!

I think there are some words that I just won't ever be able to correct. They are just too cute and I hate to mess things up by telling Cady how the word is REALLY pronounced.

An example:
While dad is out larming Cady is outside drinking who-leg while mom is inside cutting up Cue-mummers.

And speaking of words. Here's a video demonstration of making up words when you don't know the right words to use.


Coben has the belly laugh figured out now. I'd post a video if not for the babbling fool in the background (myself). I swear, when I watch back I realize that I'll do anything (and do) to get those first laughs. You'll have to come get some in person!

For those that didn't catch it on FB


One hour later....

What kind of day are YOU having??

Oh Crap!!!

Thanks to Cady for taking the pictures!!
So I went to the rec center this morning to register Cady for summer preschool. While I was sitting in the lobby filling out paperwork I first smelt it then I felt it. Coben was sitting on my lap and I looked down and saw a great big puddle in my lap (of poop). Then I see that it is also on my arms and my shirt. There were others sitting there in the lobby so all I could do was jump up and bolt out of there. I'm completely embarrassed as I'm running through the parking lot. This is a big center and I parked far away of course. I'm holding Coben who is still leaking, his carrier, all the paperwork and trying to grab Cady so she doesn't get hit. I get to the car. Oh yeah. I lost my keys!! I had to trek back through the parking lot looking like I pooped myself and go back into the rec center and try to find my keys. I was mortified. Really mortified. I find my keys and we are leaving and Cady decides to play in the rocks outside. People are openly staring at me. I snap at Cady, "Cady, c'mon!" and she says, "Mommy, you need to relax and take a deep breath." hehe. She totally put it into perspective. The pics don't do it justice b/c this is 1/2 hour later after my drive home and it had time to absorb and lighten.
