Gus had his first day of preschool last week. In my otherwise hard week, watching him enjoy preschool has been pretty awesome.
On the first day, he had to bring a baby picture. I printed a couple and let him choose one. Here he is, the baby picture he chose and on his first day of preschool, holding that baby picture.
I think he is still getting used to the routine and certainly how much more energy preschool requires than hanging out at home, but he’s loving it. Each day, he is thrilled to see me at pickup and thrilled to tell me about what they did. Which is usually something like “We played trucks! We played cars! We had a snack. Crackers!”
Each day they learn a song. It’s sort of a joke in our family that I know WAY too many songs. I have a song for everything. Aaron always thinks I made them up and he’s surprised when I can pull them on Youtube.
One such song is the Peanut Butter and Jelly song. You know it, right? Here it is, for those of you who don’t.
I read on the schedule that they would learn this song on Thursday. Out of curiosity to see what he had really learned, I said “peanut, peanut butter” as I was getting him into his car seat. He looked a bit confused for a second and then said “and jelly!”
Yes, finally, a child who will join me in singing strange songs!
This is the baby picture he did not pick, which also happens to be my favorite. I had seen a couple of other pictures of him before this one, but this one was “love at first sight”. I could see he was filled with joy.
I love this little guy. I’m so thankful to be his mama.
