Play, Learn, and Grow

Aug 5, 2013

Preschool, that is what it is all about...playing, learning, and growing right? Ace had his preschool open house the other day and I am pretty sure I was more nervous then he was. Ace has been begging to go to school ever since he found his favorite backpack last year. I cannot for the life of me believe we are at this point already, a part of me wants to keep him home for another year, then the more sane part of me is saying it will be a much welcomed break. Not too mention good for Ace to be able to socialize. The husband keeps reminding me it is only twice a week for a few hours at a time, and it's not like I will be alone...I still the rest of my offspring to keep me company. I have been thinking of all the things I could do while he is at school, I could go grocery shopping with just 2 kiddos!!! I might be able to go to the bathroom without an audience! For those few hours I will not be yelling "don't hit your brother", "Ace please do not sit on Pierce", "guys five minutes, just give me five minutes with no fighting!!" Oh the peace of mind that might come from this. 
Pierce will probably be incredibly lonely at first, but I am sure after the first few days he will relish in his new found power of being the man of the house. He was not too thrilled that he was not invited to the open house, hence the outrage he displayed in his diaper. But, this is just the beginning of these kids growing up and finding their small glimpse of freedom, and oddly enough I am getting quite emotional. Can you picture me on the first day of kindergarten? Or college? Yep, I am turing into that mom. Cue the water works...
