This girl has been waiting very patiently for school to start. Hadley was so used to playing with Gavin and Ellie everyday that when they started school, her world got turned upside down. Mommy just isn't as much fun. The first week they were in school she reverted back to throwing fits, which I was so happy she didn't do all summer. I thought maybe we had outgrown that phase of life- but No. She just does better with the big kids home. Last week was better but around 10am-ish she would start asking, "Can we go pick up Gavy and Ellie?" Last week was meet the teacher and so when the kids went back to school this last Tuesday she woke up and said, "I have school today!" When we broke the news that school wasn't that day and that she still had one more day, she had a COMPLETE meltdown. "Why do they get to go to school and I don't?"
This morning was finally her day to go back and she was more than ready and absolutely LOVED it!! I was excited for her. She woke up, ate her breakfast fast, took a few pictures with G and E before we had to take them to school, and was ready to go. We went and dropped G and E off at school and when we pulled back into the driveway she had a minor meltdown because she didn't understand why I couldn't just take her straight to school. We still had over an hour before her school started.
Finally...we arrived. She walked straight in and handed her teachers their gifts and got right to work. She has been talking about her day non stop since I picked her up. My three year old has informed me that she is a BIG KID in school now and they get to play on the BIG KID playground and not the old baby one because that one is for Little Kids. And she is a BIG KID. (This girl is dying to fast forward and grow up).
Tonight after dinner she asked me if she could wear a certain outfit to school tomorrow. I had to break the news that tomorrow is not a school day. Thankfully, she took it well when I told her we were going to play.
So without further ado....
