Back to School, take three!

Rounding out our week of first days of school, yesterday was Pink's first day of preschool. She was totally excited about the whole idea of preschool - although it might have been more about the new outfit and the princess backpack than the actually learning.

Once we got to school, and Pink wrapped her head around the idea that I was going to leave her, she was a little nervous - or maybe it was that her teacher asked her to find her nametag, and while Pink can name every disney princess and tell part of their life story, she cannot identify all her letters. Epic parenting fail.

Fortunately, she was able to catch up with 2 other little girls whose older siblings were all in a class with Blue at this age.  And really, red playdoh cures most ills, doesn't it?  Wait, not when it comes home on their shoes...

At final report, she had a great day.  Circle time was fun, playing dress up with her friends was awesome, and the snack of goldfish crackers and water was just perfect. Maybe if the teachers are willing to come in their Cinderella dresses, she might even learn her letters.

  1. Because I'm all about pawning off responsibility ;)--have you ever heard of the Leap Frog Letter Factory DVD? AMAZING! Have her watch it every day for a week, review with her, and she'll most likely get it down flat!
