29th Week of Dance and 32nd Week of Preschool

Tuesday, April 19th, we woke up to hail. Kaitlynn had breakfast and watched some tv before going to dance class. All 5 girls were in class. The recital costumes were in. I like the costume much better now seeing it in person, than seeing it in a picture. At first I was afraid it was a little too cabaret-ish. The girls learned a new dance - the Mexican hat dance. After dance, we went home and had lunch and then prepared for preschool. Kaitlynn chose an apple and goldfish for snack. On the way to school, Kaitlynn told me that a boy in her class (Max) hits her and that she is afraid of him. They have such a strange relationship. The daily schedule said they read "Wonderful Worm", celebrated the opening of their community garden, played outside on the playground and in music sang / listened to "Seed in the Ground." Kaitlynn was so excited to show me their pet worm.


Kaitlynn's Scholastic Book order came in.


We went to Circle K to get special drinks. This lady, another customer, started talking to me and Kaitlynn. She said I looked cute pregnant. I said thanks, but then didn't know if that was a compliment or not. I think it was. Kaitlynn and I went home, made dinner and changed the bed sheets. Kaitlynn talked about what she's learned about worms - they don't have eyes or ears, they have a mouth and carry their babies in their stomach (like mommy). We had severe weather, a tornado warning. Kaitlynn took an early bath and prepared for bed because of the weather. It was scary because a tornado was reported near my mom's home, but thankfully her area was OK. Kaitlynn was asleep about 9:30PM. Baby moved around and I had a little bit of heartburn. when I was laying next to Kaitlynn, the baby really moved around a lot. It was as if he knew I was laying next to his big sister and he wanted to get to her. He moved like 5 times in a matter of a few minutes. I can't wait to see these 2 together!

For this day, I was grateful for Kaitlynn doing well at dance class and preschool, the severe weather holding off until evening (and not while Kaitlynn was in school), no damage near us / my mom's, tv and cell phones for weather coverage, air conditioning, baby moving and winning the MLM Twitter contest for Easter photo package.

Wednesday, the 20th, Kaitlynn had breakfast. Baby was moving around. While I was in the shower, I felt faint and then felt sick for about an hour after. Kaitlynn played with moon sand. She wouldn't eat lunch (because we had to eat earlier than normal). She prepared for preschool and chose an apple and raisins for snack. I had a meeting at her school for the Photo Committee (we were turning in our recommendations). Before going into the meeting, Kaitlynn showed me their community garden.


After my meeting, Kaitlynn played trains in the Commons Area and I read her a few books. She wanted me to read her "Love You Forever" which is not one of my favorite books because I think it is a little strange and crosses some boundary issues. For some reason, while reading it, I started crying. These pregnancy hormones are really getting to me! When I dropped Kaitlynn off at her classroom, I talked to her teacher about what she told me about being afraid of Max.

While Kaitlynn was in school, I did some stuff on the computer and went grocery shopping. I bought an Easter lamb pastry.


I also received this sample package from the post office.


When I picked Kaitlynn up, as we were leaving, she gave Max a hug and told him about riding the school bus over the weekend at the On the Go event. She walked her classmates to the bus. She wanted to wait for her friend Chance's bus, but I told her we couldn't. Ms. E said Kaitlynn is very helpful. The daily schedule said they read "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?," observed live worms, played I Spy Alphabet Bingo, went outside to play on the playground and in music sang / listened to "Music, Music, Music" with rhythm sticks.

Kaitlynn got another book from Scholastics.


We went to Circle K and then to MawMaw's. Kaitlynn played with Daisy and then we ran some errands for Easter. After dinner and on the way home, Kaitlynn fell asleep in the car (about 8PM). Baby moved around and I had some heartburn.

This day, I am grateful for being involved in Kaitlynn's school, Kaitlynn having a good day in preschool and Dave doing well on his presentation in class.

Thursday, the 21st, Kaitlynn prepared for preschool after lunch. She chose chex mix and an apple for her snack. While Kaitlynn was at preschool, I did some laundry and the dishes. I picked Kaitlynn up from school. Lauren, a classmate of Kaitlynn's gave each child a bag of Easter candy.


The daily schedule said they did yoga, played Kids on Stage (a charades game), observed live worms, played outside on the playground and in music sang / listened to "The Pirate Song." Kaitlynn brought home a letter stating that they would be starting show and tell time from now until the end of the school year.


Kaitlynn took about a 10 minute nap in the car on the way from school to swim class. She had a different instructor besides Ms. Tori. She had Ms. Erin. 5 kids attended. They got themselves wet first, then dove for rings, worked on bubble breathing, used a noodle to practice kicking and bubble breathing, practiced kicking, arm circles, put their faces in the water for 4 seconds, floated, used a kickboard to practice floating and kicking and jumped into the pool 2 times. While Erin was with another kid, Kaitlynn was playing around and went under water, she handled it really well. She didn't freak out or get scared. We went home and had dinner and a popsicle before getting ready for bed. During her bath, Kaitlynn dumped out all of her shampoo in the bath water (because she wanted a bubble bath). She was asleep about 9PM. Baby moved around and I had heartburn. Dave and I watched the movie "Salt."

This day, I was grateful for the washing machine, Kaitlynn's teachers and Dave going grocery shopping.
