Preschool Open house

So, Tuesday night we got to go to Zoe's new preschool for an open house. Wow! It is a nice place. the teachers are super nice and the best thing is they even come out to your car to get them. Which is nice so I won't have to unbuckle Lexi and then take Zoe in and then rebuckle Lexi. I'm realizing that it's a lot more work to have a kid that can't buckle/unbuckle themselves. It's been too long since we've had to do that for Zoe I guess. It's funny the things we forget! I can't wait for her to go! Though I'll admit I am getting a little sad. She seems to be growing up soo fast. I mean preschool this year Kindergarten next year and then graduation from High School, college, marriage, kids... wow! Time really does fly. I know that most days I don't appreciate the time I get to spend with her and I know that once it's gone I'm going to miss this time together the most! So, I'm trying to spend more time with her one on one while Lexi is napping and it's been fun. I mean hours of Candyland, Strawberryland, Chutes and Ladders, fingerpainting and baking what else compares to the joy of spending time with my oldest daughter? I guarantee it's not cleaning and cooking and laundry and all that other stuff that I know I should be doing during Lexi's naptime, but I don't care, because the cleaning can wait as this little poem says :

cooking and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow
for babies grow up we've learned to our sorrow
so quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep...
I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep!

So, think of me on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons enjoying some me time and being a little sad that I don't have an excuse to not clean anymore.

Here is a picture of my beautiful little preschooler in front of her new preschool!
