Mothers should worry less. I mean, I know that it’s all part of it. From the day you find out you’re going to have a baby that’s pretty much what you do. It’s not all worry, of course. And then, if an when it is, they usually do so great that you wonder what you had yourself all worked up about.
Like today. They both did great. In fact, I probably had the most dramatic moment of the day when I got stung by a wasp. I mean, really?…. What made it interesting (and funny later) was that I couldn’t remember ever having been stung by a wasp/bee so wasn’t sure what it would do to me. My body does not do well with mosquitoes so I was a little nervous, but apparently I can take a wasp. Not that I ever want to again. Helps to be on an all-female core team though…they all really took care of me!
So, pretty good day all around.
Finn cried at drop-off, of course. But he must have just done that to make me feel loved because they said he cried for about 10 seconds and then was done. He then went on to have a great day.
Mia went straight in and started playing immediately, of course. She also had a great day and her sheet said that “she was a joy to have in class”. She told me that she “didn’t sleep so much.” The real story from her teacher was that she didn’t sleep at all but that was perfectly fine. She just sat on the other side of the other room with two other girls who also don’t nap and giggled and wiggled. I can totally see it. Tonight she said that she was a little bit sad at nap time because she missed us. Either that or she didn’t want to nap. 🙂
It happened to be a team building day for me, so we did a little bit of office work and training and a lot of hanging out together. Wednesday will be more hands-on stuff and then next week will be the test when I’m left to do it by myself.
And of course we had to take “first day” pictures. I found these shirts recently – Best Sister Ever and Most Awesome Little Brother – and decided to save them for today. Not that they were together but I like for them to remember to watch out for one another if they ever do see each other…
(and yes, they’re both purple but I guess real boys wear purple).
Mia looks so cute in this one. And then Finn was being cute – blowing kisses…
Mia is all excitement and Finn is all… teeth.
She was happier than it looks. It was just really bright so she was having a hard time looking up. She just looks so big with her backpack and lunch…
This was after school. I wanted a picture by the front door, but it didn’t go so well. They’re funny in their own way, though, so I decided to put them up anyway.
Thanks to all of you who prayed for us today and sent messages telling us you were thinking of us. We definitely felt it and love and appreciate you!
