Preschool is exhausting. If I were a preschooler, I would definitely need a nap. I know I needed a nap after spending the morning with Jaden’s class. It was Family Fun Day yesterday and I got to hang out with him for a few hours. He was so excited to have me there, which is a big boost to my ego; especially since he hasn’t been shy about telling me lately that he loves daddy more than me.
We went to a few of the different classrooms and each room hosted a different set of activities. We had a blast.
We made bead bracelets.
We played Lego (big surprise, right?).
We played basketball…or something that resembled that.
We played musical hoops-kinda like musical chairs except nobody is every out. You just have to share the hoops as they take one away each round.
And I got to meet a lot of Jaden’s classmates.
We made a ‘snack man’ out of crackers, pretzels and cheese.
And we had lunch, which included this cookie the size of his face. Seriously, why would they give preschoolers that large of a cookie? I couldn’t believe it.
One thing I did realize is that that preschool is a germ factory. There were a lot of kids whose parents couldn’t make it, so I had a couple of ‘adopted’ friends hanging on me throughout the morning. I kept wanting to ask them to go wash their hands, or bathe in hand sanitizer. And another thing…when you put 10 or 12 4-year-olds in one room, the noise level is pretty much unbearable. Honestly, if I hadn’t been completely exhausted, I would have looked forward to going to work in the afternoon.
Remember that credit card commercial that asks “What’s in your wallet?” I was thinking of that the other day as I was reaching for some heartburn relief. This pregnancy has brought the heartburn much earlier than when I was pregnant with Jaden. I’m now the crazy pregnant lady with the Tums.
“What’s in your purse?”
