Little Things

Yesterday, O’s awesome teacher discussed with us some methods that might work at a.m. drop-off.  This morning, I talked O through the plan several times at home (when we get to school we wash hands, get our chair, two kisses, and a hug) and on the way to school and we had a wonderful drop-off, complete with O telling his teachers and classmates about an upcoming trip we’re taking as B and I left for work.  I’m thinking I should have put more hugs and kisses in the plan…

If you haven’t figured it out, I’m the other mother.  Mom, Mommy and Mama.  The just-had-a-big-birthday lady.  I’ll be chiming in here from time to time, adding my perspective, venting, seeking advice, and just sharing stories.

Happy Friday!
