FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
Will played "Miss Katie" (that is the name of his teacher) with his best buddy Grace last night as they were anticipating their first day; I think he has been more excited for this event than he has for anything in his life thus far. Every new discovery is wondrous and magical. It's the reward for all of the tantrums, endless meals, cleaning up, and soothing that we do as parents.
I asked him what his favorite part of his first day at preschool was and he said, "Everything... and playing with Playdoh." I was so happy to see his smiling face. He just seemed so grown up today. The best part was when I told him he got to go two times next week, on Tuesday and Thursday, and he said, "You mean I get to do it again?!" The kid totally thought preschool was a one day gig. What a monkey.
