Milestones: Cooper started preschool this week! He did awesome on his first day and was so excited to go. The teacher said she was impressed by how well he cleaned up everything (??? – doesn’t do this at home – LOL) and how well he ate his lunch. I’m excited for him to make lots of new friends and learn all sorts of new things!
Says: For the past month we have been reading lots of books about kids going to preschool to prepare him for the change. One book we read was about a girl who was scared to be at school. He said “Don’t worry mom. I won’t be sad. I will be excited!”
And then we were talking about nap/rest time at preschool and how if he didn’t want to nap he could just rest and think about quiet things. He said “ok I will think about birds and butterflies and pickles.”
Does: Loves picking berries off the raspberry and blackberry bushes at our house and at babcia and dziadzia’s house.
