All three boys are having incredibly hard times at preschool / daycare this week.
When I got to Mike’s classroom Wednesday he was sitting in his cubby crying.
Chip had hard days where nothing seemed to be right and he just wanted to eat waffles. Everything made him mad. Even his pants.
Robbie got mad at me yesterday morning because I happened to mention that we never go to school naked. Ever.
Add to that the fact that yesterday they had to wear the dreaded raincoats and rainboots, and you have the makings of a long freaking week. They only are in daycare until 12:30 and there wasn’t even any school on Monday! Yet they are all still losing their shit.
They all seem to be recovering from our long post-Christmas trip to Oregon. Long drives, strange hotel, visiting family, and so on. So today I’m keeping them all home from school. We’re going to have a quiet day of playing with Christmas toys, rumbling in the back yard, pancakes for (their!) breakfast, and generally getting back into the swing of things. Wish us luck!
