Making New Friends...

...at the boys' new school, there are...



children with food allergies

children with physical disabilities

children of other races

children of other religions...



...to say, that all of this makes me happy and relieved and excited,

would be an understatement.



oh gosh... just re-read that... I'm not happy that any child has an allergy or disability... I'm happy that they are welcomed and cared for at this center... I'm happy that my two boys they will be playing and learning right alongside children that may or may not be just like them... and may or may not have similar backgrounds...

new beginnings...

the boys started at their new "school" (i.e. daycare), today.

three cheers to new beginnings (again...)?

why?

because no daycare is going to be perfect...
there's no place that is going to do things exactly "like home"...

but...

call it a gut feeling... or instinct...
or a laundry list of things that were concerning...
whatever...

but this momma needs to feel know the boys are safe.

that's what it comes down to...
safe (and happy).

so today...
a new beginning...

started out with tears from both boys...
at drop off, by Dadda...

and a forgotten stuffed cat, that I had to deliver...
making me late to work...

a rocky monday start.

but a new beginning...

Yeah, That.

...OK so you know when you have a drawer that's crammed full, and you can't find anything, so you dump the drawer and organize and purge... and you end up putting all of the coloring books onto a bookshelf in the family room... and all the crayons and markers into a basket on that same shelf... and then Ethan finds the shelf and exclaims "Mom, look at all our coloring books!"... and then spends 47 minutes coloring (i.e. entertaining himself without electronics).

yeah... that.

That's what happened last night.
