Everybody went to school today. Well, Lauren and Hailey anyway. Hailey was big, didn't cry! But also didn't eat breakfast...she spent the morning explaining to us how she was going to give me a big hug and say goodbye at school. She had so much anxiety, trying so hard to be a big girl, that she never ate. I felt so bad for her. But I am also very proud of her - she realizes her feelings and is working on them! What a lot of personal growth for a 2 year old.
Lauren had her first full day of school in a whole week. Think it was a good one. She had a science test. A small spat with a friend...Lauren often wishes she didn't have friends, but at the same time she wants friends. It is a constant push and pull with her. I understand her feelings completely and will praise the day that she finds that special friend that just loves her for who she is and whom she can give that same love back to!
This afternoon we made cheese bagels for a snack then the girls went off to play school. HA. Guess they didn't get enough. Anyway - Hailey sported a pair of Lauren's Fancy boots all around the house. The clicking of the high heel was enough to drive a person batty but she was so cute I just couldn't deny her the pleasure.
Tonight Lauren is working on a story for the Reading Rainbow Story Contest. She has titled it "Somebody" Always Means Me I have a feeling it is going to be a very cute story...keep you posted!
