A Quiet Night

Last night was a quiet night at home. I did not have to worry about:
Giving baths
Helping kids with their jammies
Telling the girls to stop talking & go to sleep 100 times.

The girls spent the night with Grandma.

This morning was great too. No rushing to get the kids ready or finding lost shoes.

It was a welcomed break. Thanks MOM!!!

When Do I Start Kindergarten?

We have started our back to school shopping already. Registration is in just a few short weeks. Sissy keeps asking me when she gets to start Kindergarten. She actually means Preschool. I have talked to her about the possibility of going back to preschool in the fall. She is very excited about this. She is still having speech issues that I would like to have addressed before she actually starts Kindergarten in fall of 2011.

Our school district has a need based preschool program. The kids have to be screened & meet certain criteria to be eligible for the program. If there are lots of empty spaces they will accept children who do not have the greatest amount of need. I fully believe that Sissy will not have a problem with qualifying for the program again given her history of speech problems.

I need her to be in the pm class, because I want her to continue with the great preschool program that her daycare offers as well. She will learn more at daycare than at preschool. I just need to be able to coordinate transportation for her, which will not be the easiest thing to accomplish.

Hopefully we can get things figured out to get her back into speech services.

Tooth Fairy Update

Well, Zee was disappointed this morning when she woke up. The Tooth Fairy had not left her any money. I let her know that the Tooth Fairy came to our house last & realized that she was out of money. The Tooth Fairy asked me to give Zee $2 & she would pay me back the next time she came to our house for Zee's next tooth. This seemed to appease Zee. She told me that the Tooth Fairy left the best for last.

Bring On The Tooth Fairy!!!

After a whole year of Kindergarten with most of her classmates losing teeth, Zee has FINALLY lost her first tooth. And when I say lost, I mean it literally. She was at summer day camp and it came out while eating her lunch. The kids told the staff that Zee didn't know where it was. One of the staff told her that when you lose a tooth like that, the tooth fairy pays double. She had one of the office staff write a letter to that effect, but from what I understand the Tooth Fairy delivered a letter there for Zee. Once I get home from work I will have to see what the Tooth Fairy said. All of the staff at her day camp just love her. She is such a well behaved & loving kid. That's what they tell me.

Now I wonder how much money she is expecting the Tooth Fairy to bring. More later.
