Greer Starts Preschool + Q&A!

September 11, 2019

Our Greer girl is officially a preschooler! And she is the most adorable preschooler in the history of ever (**says every mother of their child- but it's so true**). I can't get enough of her wearing her little backpack or her socks + shoes with dresses. She is this little bundle of light and joy who loves preschool so much that she's asked if she can go every day of the week. 

Meanwhile, I'm over still adjusting to my house with only one child twice a week. I don't know what to do with myself, and I'm finding that I miss her terribly while she's away. And I can't even begin to think about her going to kindergarten, leaving me five days a week for a much longer stint. Thankfully, we've got a couple of years, and I'm promising myself I won't blink. I'm trying to savor and soak in this new season because I don't want to forget any little bit of it. In fact, I've been mentally chronicling little loves of mine from our preschool days...

  • I love that.... 
    • she runs to greet me with a hug at pick up
    • she still wants to hold my hand to be picked up and dropped off 
    • I've learned to bring ice water at pick-up to refresh my girl who has been wildly playing on the playground to end her day
    • she's so independent and brave
    • she has this zeal for new adventures and learning 
    • she plays with all of her heart and self
    • she wants to get into dress-up clothes, specifically princess dresses, as soon as I drop her off
    • she plays tea party with friends during playtime
    • she asks me to tell her about my day on the car ride home
    • she wants to know when she gets to go back
    • watching my girl become this amazing and capable person 

And now for a little Greer perspective. Here are the questions we asked Greer during breakfast on her first day of preschool....
