It's not exactly what I had imagined

Well, it's been an insanely long time since I've written.  To be precise, not since Kekito's first day of preschool.

I had built up these images in my head about our first day.  Sigh.....  It was idyllic- IN MY HEAD, but NOT when it came down to making it a reality.  Oh holy moly!

I had hoped to snap a sweet memory of him and his backpack
bouncing off to school (this is the one we got instead).

We had practiced walking to school every day for two weeks.  We had practiced wearing his super awesome new "Cars" backpack.  We. Were. READY.  But apparently, not so much! lol  The morning was crazy hysterics; starting from our first step out of the door.

He got a lot better about walking to school, but followed that up, shortly after, with a cold.  Ugh.  Then the best Mom in the world came to visit as well.  So crazy busy, with no chances to write, only time to live.

This week came with all new challenges trying to potty train and explain to him why Grammy was no longer hanging out with us all day! 

This last Friday though, I finally had it- my idyllic preschool day!  He was over the loss of Grammy to California; we figured out that he didn't want to potty unless he washed his hands before as well as after; and we learned that we needed to walk/run/skip/hop/jump/snake/creep/march to school. ;)

So next week, let's hope I can get back to my bloggy love- writing and reading!!!!!!!!! Missed ya'll! ;)
