Tuesday, January 11th, Kaitlynn woke up at 5:40AM. Way too early for me and so not her usual time of waking up. She watched the Disney channel and then played in the living room with her toys. Dance class was canceled due to the snow. Preschool was also canceled. Kaitlynn watched Spongebob, wrestled, rested while watching some Nickelodeon and took a nap all before lunch.
Kaitlynn did attend a Dance make up class that evening (they opened for the evening classes). She was making up the class she missed the previous week. This class was totally different than Kaitlynn's regular class. It was with a different teacher. I have to say, Kaitlynn really tried. She did great for not attending a dance class since December 21st and coming back to something completely different. I am so glad she has that attitude of giving news things a try! I think I was more overwhelmed with the class being different than Kaitlynn. I spend the entire class texting Dave about it. I was shocked that they even did the princess dance differently. How confusing for Kaitlynn! I think that the teacher could have been a little more gracious or helpful to Kaitlynn since the class was completely different and she is only 3 1/2 years old. Kaitlynn kept trying to socialize with the other girls too but they had already formed their clique. It's amazing (sad) that kids have adapted that behavior at 3 and 4 years old already.
We came home and played in the snow. Kaitlynn had hot chocolate afterwards. We made dinner and played Memory (as a family) 3 times and then Chutes and Ladders.
Kaitlynn loves making snow angels. It's almost always 1 of the first things she does when she gets out in the snow.
Wednesday, the 12th, Kaitlynn got ready for preschool and packed her snack (popcorn and raisins). Kaitlynn had a good day. The daily schedule said they acted out the story of "Goldilocks and the 3 Bears," painted with tempera cakes, created snowflakes using coffee filters, played in the gym and in music sang / listened to "Make Friends With a Beanbag."
family picture that Kaitlynn made previously. It was hanging in the classroom, but they got to bring them home.
After school, Kaitlynn took a nap in the car. We went to MawMaw's because she had to go to an appointment. Then we had dinner at Bread Co. Kaitlynn loves the french onion soup and asks for "Company" frequently!
Thursday, the 13th, I met my women's group for lunch and to discuss chapter 2 of "I Quit." I told the 4 women that were at lunch that we were expecting. Dave got Kaitlynn ready for preschool, packed snack (apple and popcorn) and took her. Dave and I met for lunch.
The daily schedule at preschool said they did yoga and learned a new pose - lying twist, played a Goldilocks and the 3 Bears board game, sorted by color and size, played in the gym and in music had a "Bean Bag Parade." Another Scholastics book order came home and is due by the end of the month. I am always so excited to look at the catalogs!
That evening Kaitlynn started telling people that "mommy has a baby in her tummy. She has to drink lots of water so the baby will grow big like me."
