Max went to his first day of preschool this week, and he loves it!
He insisted that I drop him off at the door, even though the mommy in me wanted to walk him into his classroom and make sure he was OK.
He waved at me and went in by himself.
He was fine!
I was not.
I missed my little Max. It's been over three years since I've really been able to go to anywhere by myself (In daylight hours, that is) so it was strange to be alone. I kept talking to the empty backseat of our car.
I was able run several errands and pick up the other kids from school before we got Max. He was so excited to show us the picture he drew! We still aren't sure what it is, but it's darn cute!
This week Max has been singing the songs he has learned in preschool. I think my favorite was when he sang...........
"At McDonald's has a farm eeee i eeee i oh! At McDonald's has a farm eeee i eeee i oh! At McDonald's has a farm eeee i eeee i oh! At McDonald's has a farm eeee i eeee i oh! At McDonald's has a farm eeee i eeee i oh! At McDonald's has a farm eeee i eeee i oh! "
I finally had to try and move the song along a little bit and I sang "And on that farm they had some......"
Max looked at me blankly.
I tried again "On that farm they had some..............."
(waiting patiently for Max to name an animal)
So I suggest "Did they have any pigs on the farm?"
"What about cows?"
"No. No cows."
"Well, Max, what kind of animals did they have at the McDonald's farm?"
Max tilts his head sideways thinks for a moment and then says-
"THEY ALSO HAVE SOME DINOSAURS!!"
I think maybe we need to schedule a field trip to a farm.
