Endings

Today was MM's last day of Jr. Kindergarten. His last day of daycare.

He chose his outfit with care. Today was "Hollywood Pizza Party! Dress glamorously!"

He wore his blue pants, his white oxford shirt, his ocean-print coral-reef bowtie.

Couldn't you just keel over from the cuteness?

Neither he nor his friend DeepVoicedKindergartener have really realized it, but today was their last day of school together...at least for this year. DVK is going to public school starting Tuesday, while we're keeping MM at Posh Place (they have full-day Kindergarten. Our county public schools do not. PP doesn't have after-school care this year for the half-day kids, only for the full-day ones. Sigh.)

DVK and MM have been in daycare together since they were nine months old. They are best friends. I don't know how they will feel about this change. Especially DVK...his parents just got divorced.

We're already setting up a boatload of playdates with him. You betcha.

So , two endings in one. And a new beginning on Tuesday. Imagine! No naps*!





*please note he hasn't napped at school for over 4 years. He. Just. Doesn't.

Tis the season for changes. Good luck to MM.

We're anticipating the same this this week with DQ and her best friend. Eek!

As evidenced by our family, kids can remain friends for life. Gigi and OD met in their first day of preschool when they were three. Sixteen years later, well..you know.

I don't think there is anything cuter than a little boy in a bow tie.

Hope he's going to have a terrific first day today! And that he and DVT have lots of fun playdates and stay in each others' lives.

I'm worried about that when my son (now 3) goes to kindergarten. He and his buddies have been together since they were 9 WEEKS old, and only one is in our school district. Sigh. We will be setting up tons of get-togethers with them, too, when the time comes.

Naps are a funny thing. Our son always takes them at home, and sporadically at daycare. When he was an infant, he would sometimes not nap during the whole "work day", both while I was on maternity leave and after I went to work. The ladies at daycare said "He has to sleep sometime." He slept when he was tired. Whoever came up with idea that infants sleep 20 hours a day obviously never met my son when he was an infant.
