Today was the first day of school for Catherine (and on her birthday too, 2 years and 2 months today!). Dave, the nanny and I all piled in the car to take our little monkey to her first day of pre-school. (We took Mina for security reasons, b/c we wanted the school staff to meet her). As I had researched schools and picked out this one, Dave finally got a chance to see the inside and check out Catherine’s classroom. We all met the headmaster and Catherine’s teacher. The staff got to meet Dave and Mina and were told that only one of the three of us would ever be allowed to pick Catherine up from school. She will attend school from 8AM to noon Sunday through Thursday. (regular workweek here).
She came home with a sticker on her hand, a homemade paper crown on her head and a tired but happy look on her face! Her afternoon schedule remains the same: eat lunch, play a little bit, then take a tub-tub and down for an afternoon power nap.
