Paul usually gets the kids ready in the morning and drops them off so I can get to work.  If I had to do this and pick up too, I think the stress would do me in.  Benny has been such a fussy, Groucho in the mornings.  Crying, whining, tantrums.  I listen to it as I am packing up to leave.  After some milk and Max and Ruby, he is always better.  He can be smiley.

100 days of school

I downloaded blogger for my phone! Maybe I will be able to post more?  Apparently 100 day collections are very popular projects in early elementary school, a way to celebrate 100 days of school.  We were assigned to find 100 objects around our house and display them in a unique and creative way.  They also needed to be countable by 10's.  We had no shortage of pennies, so this is what we decided on.  I made V do all the counting and lettering.  I did help with gluing.  Unfortunately when thr poster board bent, pennies would fall off.  I fixed his by adding clear packing tape across the pizza part.

Store cuteness

It’s been crazy snowy around here – thus no school for two days. Monday our daycare also was closed for the first time in 18 years. Today it was open, so P dropped Benny off on his way to work. I worked at home with V for the morning, then we switched and I went in for the afternoon. We were out of fruit and vegetables, so I picked up Benny after daycare and just he and I went to the store. I love one on one time with each child so much. He was delightful. He wanted to ride in the cart. He loved the free samples. “Hmmm, dEE licious”. “What’s that?” was uttered approximately 30 times. I dropped something on the floor – “uh-oh, spaghetti-o’s”. “Mama, buy that!”. “pizza mama, pizza!” I’ll treasure this age always. It’s the best.
