You're never going to believe this one.
Today, I dropped Maggie off at preschool... and then left! Like a regular mom! No coloring for 15 minutes, no reading a story together. Amazing.
She absolutely adores her school and always has a wonderful time there. And today, when we arrived, one of the teachers was playing her guitar and the kids were all playing along with different musical instruments. Maggie took off her coat and boots as fast as she could and ran in there. She grabbed a maraca and then a cymbal and drumstick, and played along with the biggest smile on her face. I have her a kiss, she waved at me, and didn't even look up again.
I'm so happy! I was beginning to think we wouldn't get here, but lo and behold!
Nina's also having a wonderful week at school. On Monday her class went to the theater at the casino (she says it's lovely; spiral staircases, huge chandeliers... I'd like to see it! Nick!), today a story-teller is coming to their class, and on Friday they're going to the story-teller's villa (to hear more stories?). They're doing a unit on Hans Christian Anderson and the Brothers Grimm and it's a lot of fun. Also the perfect lead-in to our trip to Disney.
The sun is still shining and it's still nice and warm so that helps too. Only 2 weeks and 2 days until we're on our way! So excited!
