The Second First Day of School

MiniM.E. had her second first day of (pre)school today.  She has been talking it up since the middle of summer.  Despite her crying at drop off until even the last day of school, she really did grow to love it last year and she definitely missed it over the summer.

We have been counting down the days for weeks and surprisingly MiniM.E. has gotten insanely good at tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, the day after that, next week, the week after next week, etc. and how many days all those things actually are.  So though it was mildly obnoxious to have to tell her how many days until school 5 or 6 times a day, at least she learned something.

She was so excited for today that I didn't think she was even going to sleep last night.  And the first words out of her mouth this morning were, "I'm so excited!"

I can't believe it was a whole year ago that she went to preschool for the first time!


sit-down dance of excitement

and jumping for joy  
 LittleL.G. and I stayed today because it was open house where MiniM.E. had a chance to see the classroom again, say hi to her teacher and meet her new classmates.

Unlike last year, she is still so excited to go and insists there will be no crying at drop off this year.  Let's see what happens Friday...
