A New Beginning
After weighing the pros and cons, Jay and I decided that last Friday was to be the girl's final day of pre school. This decision was made after a lot of soul searching. On the one hand, the girl loved school and was doing great (and I loved my little bit of alone time.) On the other, mornings were needlessly stressful and afternoons were hectic and filled with a lot of yelling.The girl would come home from school wired and what little one-on-one time I had with her was unenjoyable. I felt as if we were both missing some great opportunities to bond.So, we are settling into a new rhythm around here. We've played, done some learning activities, and vegged out in front of the tv. As I type this out, she's in the other room playing independently, which I love. Already it feels as if the days are less stressful. I'm excited about our new routine. Unfortunately, the dog doesn't share my enthusiasm.
