a first time for everything

S has successfully completed her first day of "school." Or what we're calling school. It's really just Mother's Day Out, but that's a mouthful for a toddler. She loved it. She didn't even flinch about being left. She asked me where I was going. I told her I was going to run some errands and I'd be back in a little while. She said, "Oh, okay. Bye." She gave me a kiss and turned to play. That was that.

She made it through the day with no tears and no accidents, and she ate the turkey from her lunch but not the strawberries or crackers. She did however take some other little boy's pears, and she says they were very good. Awesome. We were afraid she'd steal food. What can I say? We know our daughter.

Here are some pics.
S's new school bag. Check out the awesome map fabric and the GIS patch!
A would've-been-great photo that she refused to re-cheese for.
Off to school.

In other S news...
  • After weeks of sickness and having the floors refinished, we hadn't seen Mr. P in a good long while. When M brought him over for dinner last night, S walked up, shook his hand and said, "it's nice to see you, Mr. P." I almost peed.
  • She's now telling Otis to, "chill out, buddy," when he gets overly excited.
  • My kid loves a musical. We are now listening to the soundtrack of Oklahoma! nonstop in the car.
  • She picked out her first set of sheets for a big girl bed, which we don't have but are looking for. They are white with hot pink and light pink polka dots, and they have a nice thread count.
  • She is a potty machine. If we can just graduate from the potty chair to a real potty, she'll officially be like...a big kid. How did that happen so fast?

OK, I give. She does look like you...

Glad to hear that MDO went well for you. We start next week!

She's getting so big! And she's so beautiful.

Just make sure she doesn't take the song "I'm Just a Girl Who Cain't Say No" to heart.... ;-) I'd love to see footage of her belting out "Oklahoma!" sometime!

OK, now i worry about the implications of my comment. I know your daughter is sweet and precious and innocent, and if you don't want to post the comment, I will understand. >-P

It came from being in high school: The DJs on our school radio station played it for this girl Beth...and she didn't request it. It was kind of terrible and appropriate at the same time.
