Cricket’s First Day of Preschool 3s!


Yay for school starting! Emma Vance went back THREE WEEKS ago, which means the past 21 days have been painful while waiting for preschool to start (why is entertaining one child so much harder than two?). Yesterday Cricket had her first gradual entry day of 3s at Northbrook, and today she went #momheaven

This year Cricket will be going four days a week, for four hours a day. It’s going to be a game changer, hopefully. With E.V. in school about one million hours a day, I feel like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, like in just two short years I’ll have a semblance of freedom back. I have more things on my To-Do List than is realistic right now, but I’m eager to get started. Think: house projects, art projects, work projects, social excursions, exercise that’s not done at the crack of dawn, books to read, and — most of all — long, leisurely strolls at Target. And Home Goods. And Michael’s. Ahhh, that’s the life.

[Cricket’s first day outfit was pretty much 0% me, so credit goes to @stylinsophie for her ADORABLE hand-made ice cream leo (and hand-me-down necklace), to Cricket’s aunt and uncle for the glitterific pink tutu, and Joyfolie for her fancy kicks (which are her current fave).]

Last week, before school started, we had a class playdate, and our awesome new teacher gave each child a new “pet” to keep in her classroom. Cricket chose a pig, naturally, because it was pink. Duh.

And then, today, on her first FULL day of school, we dropped E.V. off at 7:20, then wasted two hours eating our current favorite acai + pity bowl (which gave Cricket “fruit + veggie muscles,” a scheme I concocted that seems to be working) and doing her homework (a nature walk).

Now, only three more days until the WEEKEND!
