Song of the Day: Billy Madison - Back to School Song
After today I've had the 'first day' of all of my classes! I'm really excited for this semester because I'm really interested in all of my classes. I got my first choice in Field Training and I'm going to be shadowing a school counselor at a local elementary school! I already met with her and I think it's going to be a really good fit for the semester!
The kids did really well on their first (and second) day of day care! Elliot could care less that I was leaving! Which is SUCH an improvement on last year's first day drop off (more like first two weeks of drop off). Caroline is a little too young for the separation anxiety yet, and I'm hoping that she's fully adjusted by the time she is in that phase. Elliot has loved being able to play outside and with all of the new toys and friends inside. Today they learned about the color red and he's been telling me all about 'red' even though I'm not 100% sure about what he's telling me about red, lol. Caroline had a rough first day, but after they figured out to put her in the bouncy that is identical to the one we have at home, she's been great. She loves bouncing and gets so excited! She's eating well and has started on cereal, fruits, and veggies, but her naps aren't there yet. It's hard because she falls asleep on the way to daycare so her naps are off. She's also pretty much refusing to fall asleep. There's still a lot of new stuff to get used to, so I'm not worried about it yet. Well, I'm trying not to be worried about it yet. It took Elliot about two weeks until he started napping really well at day care, so I need to give Caroline that time as well before I start freaking out :)
The only downside about school is my 5:15 wake up call. Tuesday, Kyle had a super early flight, so I woke up at 3:00 when his alarm went off and couldn't get back to bed, so I was ready really early. Today I woke up at 5:15 when my alarm went off, and we were late getting out of the house. So it looks like 5:00 is going to be the magic number. Oof-da. I've been so exhausted and am beyond ready for bed by the time Elliot goes to bed. I just don't have enough hours in the day to catch up from Tuesday morning. I can't wait for this weekend! Hello nap time :)
