Visit with the Messiah

Just Tell Me What to Say: Sensible Tips and Scripts for Perplexed ParentsYou're Not the Boss of Me: Brat-proofing Your Four- to Twelve-Year-Old ChildI don't know who you worship but I met the nursery school equivalent last night and I am a believer.  It was like being in the presence of greatness with whipped cream and chocolate.  I am going to buy BOTH of her books as she is a genius. She was very straight forward and down to earth.  

She SCARED the HE double hockey sticks out of me but it was good to get the straight skinny.  I wanted to ask if I could move into her house with the LO and she could advise me.  I was ready to pull out pics to convince her.  I link to her blog on the right so I had an idea of the greatness but was blown away with the actual meeting.

So if you are not living in this area, you may be thinking why am I thinking about nursery school?? Let me tell you, Betsy advises to call from the hospital to get on the lists.  She didn't say that we were late but you could feel the vibe.   The one commonality that a lot of the schools are looking for is diversity.  Well, I am Jewish and DH is not and it ends there.  In other parts of the country that would be diverse but here, we are a dime a dozen.  If you have any ideas on promoting our diversity, let me know.  Poppins graciously volunteered her husband to stand in our family pics but it might be a hard sell to the schools as LO is so damn light. 

I feel ready to tackle this beast and hope for the best.  There are toddler programs to attend at the nursery schools and asses to kiss.  In the end, who could resist this little face??!
