We survived the first day of school! It was only a "Gradual Entry" where the parents went with the kids. It was also only for an hour. I think Becca is the youngest one in the class. She yelled "NO!" at a girl who approached the play food she was playing with. Then she cried when we we told her she had to share the play food with the other kids. But she recovered and (sort of) shared. I think she is going to love going to school. Thursday is her first REAL day (with no parents). Her lucky mom will be hanging out in the doctor's stirrups during her "me time."
So, now for some updates:
1. The polka-dotted house. Thanks to MaryB, I remembered another can of paint I had spied in the basement when she casually mentioned a random paint color name. And wouldn't you know it? It matches! I do not know WHY one wall of one room would be one color and the other wall another color. And the two colors look identical. Why, why WHY? I do not know. But I am glad we no longer have polka dots.
2. Potty training. No longer exists. My kid is no longer potty trained. She just pees whereever and refuses to use the potty. I am partially losing my mind over this. Okay, maybe more than partially.
3. My broken precioussssss. I ordered a replacement online, thanks to the urging my loyal readers. But mostly it was my mom, who told me to get a new one immediately and that she would even be glad to help as a baby gift! Thank you, MOM! This is why we have moms and not just husbands. Husbands do not understand the imperative and urgent nature of things like this (at least mine doesn't.) I can't believe is now HALF THE COST as it was when I intially purchased the camera, but hey! At least I will be able to take photos that don't look like this. Oh my GOD, can you imagine if I was photographing a newborn under these horrible circumstances?
