Olivia had a dentist appointment today and since this was her third checkup, you’d think it would be getting easier. Nope. She screamed and cried and would hardly let them go near her mouth. Thankfully, she goes to a great pediatric dentist who does the best that she can do and is really awesome with her. Who knows when Olivia will ever let them take x-rays. They even have a tv on the ceiling, but Olivia never tolerates having headphones on (she doesn’t like things on or around her ears.) So, it was a delightful appointment to say the least. And as we were walking out, Olivia looked at me and said, “Well, it wasn’t that bad.” Everyone began laughing at that point because of the fuss she’d made the whole time. My sweet girl. . .things like that are just so tough on her. Some day things will get easier, I hope. At least she looked super cute today and had a great time playing at Izzy’s house afterwards.

Preschool. . .man, it’s tough. Maybe more so on me, but it’s been an adjustment for all of us. I’ve always led my daughter to believe that you don’t get up until the sun comes up (thus avoiding 5 am wake up times.) The other day it was overcast and still pretty dark in her room when I went in to wake her up. Olivia rolled over and said, “Mom, it’s not time to get up. .. the sun is not up yet!” I know, darling, I know. (Now I think she’s on to me and will someday realize that there is life before sunrise. Darn.) But, truthfully, it’s tough to send her to preschool when she tells me she just wants to stay home. And when I drop her off she tells me,”But I need you mommy and mommy needs me!” There is a big window in her classroom that overlooks the parking lot. She saw me pull up today and completely interrupted the class by shouting,”That’s my mommy!! My mom is coming! My mom is coming!” When I got to the classroom, she was still staring out the window. I walked in and she came running to me saying, “I love you mommy!” Again. . .interrupting the class. . .sorry. I don’t know if she just misses me that much or really doesn’t like school. It’s still tons better than last year and last year she only went for an hour and a half! At least the tears stop this year as soon as I leave. It still doesn’t make it any easier on this mommy.

Can I get a little push?
Who let the cat outta the bag?
Tobey always keeps us laughing. He always has to be in the middle of everything. I don’t know how many times a day I hear, “Mom! Tobey’s bothering me!” He just likes to play with all the same toys as Olivia. Our house wouldn’t be the same without him
