Sorry, all three of you who read this bad boy. I just haven't had time or inclination to post lately, but things are good. Maggie started school two days a week a couple weeks ago. She loves it, although there have been some meltdowns when I drop her off. Paul did drop-off duty yesterday and, of course, she was fine. She's already made some little friends, it seems. A group of little boys informed her they were building her a house out of blocks when she arrived the other day. She is one of the youngest kids, and per usual, the baldest, kid there.
This is a Montessori school, which I wanted because I went to Montesssori for preschool, kindergarten and some of elementary school. I think it's a great way to educate young children, with its emphasis on sensory learning and experiences. Case in point, her first day, she wandered over to a sand table which was filled with dried kidney beans. She was still there when I came to take her home, putting the beans in containers and pouring them out, fascinated with this simple, organic thing. Gotta love Montessori..
Also? We had a party! We had people over for a happy hour last Friday. You don't realize how many of your friends are parents until ALL of their kids are rocketing around your backyard. Amazing that the wildest party we have ever had was made so by the (way) under-21 set. It made me feel good to now have crawled out of the hole enough to do such a thing. Maggie was the belle of the ball, of course, and loved having tons of people to play with.
So, things are good here at Chez Bitchy. What's been up with y'all?
