The usual stuff has been happening as well. LO goes to school three days a week for two hours and is loving it sooooooo much. Separation took a long time but happened so naturally that it was all worth it. I still stay with her until they go outside but I do leave for a bit and there is no clinging to me with a death grip. She has a major crush on her teacher and talks about her all the damn time.
Halloween happened. LO told me tonight that she was NOT dressing up next year and I believe her. She didn't want to wear her costume and when I offered for her to wear her doctor coat even though we had family costumes, she was not into it. She hasn't asked about her candy once and wasn't interested after a few raisins and M&Ms. The kids could wear their costumes to school today and she looked at me like I was crazy when I told her that she could.
|LO to DH, I will cut you if you put that hat on me again.|
|I am wearing this costume but you will pay in M&Ms later.|
|MOM, all my friends have cool Disney costumes |
and you dressed me as a fake Curious George. Get a clue.
"You have TWO choices, NOT go home OR NOT take a nap."
"You have GOT to be kidding me."
"I am MAD because you are NOT MAD."
"That is IMPOSSIBLE."
"On second thought.........on second thought........." silence
"First, I am going to stick this in your mouth and then look in your ear."
"I changed my diaper, the poop is over there."
"I drew you a picture on my crib."
We celebrated Mama Cat's birthday tonight by LO yelling at her and eating some M&Ms. I think she really appreciated all the effort.
