Happy Holidays

The grandkids at my moms for Christmas. Curt starts his new school Monday. If you're scared, say scared. Ok. I'm scared.

There was drama at both my parents' and at Cowboy's mother's house, but it will have to wait. Too tired. Merry (belated) Christmas. (We have traveled about 700 miles this week...)

Don't Be Sleepin at My House

Or you will be photographed..

Had to delete. Too embarrassing, even though I was the photographer...

It appears Curt will begin his new preschool Dec. 29. I am calling the owner this afternoon to confirm.

I talked to her again yesterday. I'm sure I sounded like an old, overprotective mom (ok, ok, I am), but I wanted her to know the good, the bad, the ugly.

What I told her:
  • Speech delay makes him frustrated at times
  • Very impatient
  • A very picky eater
  • May sleep at sleep time, may not
  • Went through a pretty bad biting stage which has improved
  • Just now potty-training for poo
  • Transition will not be easy, most likely horrible for 2-3 weeks

She was non-plussed. Ginger (and if I could tell you the name of this place, you would think the fact that her name is Ginger is a little comical) responded as though most kids have one or more of these traits (and it seems they do). She told me, "We're pretty laid-back." I think that will be a nice change from the military schedule of his current school.

I'm a little sad. That sounds weird, even to me. I will miss the student teachers.

I'm more excited about new beginnings. I feel I am making the right decision. God, I hope so.

Milestone #2

Curt has not had an accident since Saturday. He is telling me when he has to poo. Thank God he poos like me (quick and to the point) and not like Daddy and C1 (takes 30 minutes and reading material)

We are making light-speed progress! And it only took 4+ years.
