Bug started his first day of preschool today. He will be attending three afternoons a week. I really wanted him to be able to be around some kids his age and make more friends. Here is how our conversation went when I picked him up.
Me: Did you play with any of the other kids today?
Bug: Yeah, I liked two boys but not the other ones. (there are three girls in his class and seven boys)
Me: Why didn't you like the other boys? (he does NOT like playing with girls.)
Bug: They were skinny.
(Um okay, I thought he was going to tell me they were mean because that is what he usually tells me.)
Me: Did you need the snack I packed you?
Bug: No we had cookies and chocolate milk for some one's birthday.
Me: Oh! Who was it for, Maddox? (I had seen the cookie cake out side of the classroom with the beginning initials of "Ma" on it)
Me: Is he one of the boys you played with?
Bug: No. He didn't have chubby cheeks. His were just skinny.
HAHA! Talk about a bizarre preference for how to pick friends. But whatever works. lol
These two boys love each other so much. For the most part they play so well together and keep each other entertained. It is going to come in handy when their baby sister arrives.
We all had the BEST time here. The boys got to ride their first "roller coaster" and rode all of the rides as many times as we would let them. Plus we saw tons of cool animals. At some points the bears and wolves were literally brushing up against our car as we drove.
Look at the pure childlike joy in their eyes from a simple train ride.
I love my camera. Who knew a thistle could look so pretty?
