A is for......

Lily has homework each week and this weeks homework included finding all things A in our home. Well really I must admit I cheated Nonnie found all things Aa, and not in our home at all. Anyways the finding of all these fun items spurred me into action. We are making an ABC book. 25 more weeks to go.
The back to school routine always leads to transitions. Lots of them. Lily is love loving her new school and I am so relieved!!! She is excited to go. Not at all excited that I am waking her in the wee hours but excited to go anyways. My girl is NOT a morning person. This morning I opened her door and brought her half asleep to the couch to encourage waking up. She rolled over on the couch looked at me hobbled like a drunken sailor back to her room and closed the door. Caused Peter and I quite the giggle.

Another transition is that baby tiger has to be left here at home. The first day of school she put him in her lunch box. I let her do it. I figured that if knowing he was there made her more comfortable so be it. The next day she got to bring a bag with three things she loved. Of course baby tiger went. Over the weekend I had to give her the bad news that baby tiger was going to just have to wait for her at home because we needed to keep him safe. She was mad, but went to school without a complaint.

Then I pushed my luck just a little more. I told her that I wanted her to stop sucking on her blanket. she said I don't know what I think about that. I said well he's very dirty and we might have to throw him away if he gets too dirty. She went in her room and closed the door I am pretty sure to suck on her beloved blanket. She came out a few minutes later and said mommy we can just wash him. I told her that the place she sucks on him just won't come clean anymore. Maybe we could cut that corner off. Oh my you would think I wouldve told her I was gonna cut off a limb. She went in my room sat in my closet and sobbed. Since we are in such a transition I decided planting the seed of things to come was enough. I suggested perhaps we should find a new corner. She looked at me in all seriousness and said but mommy I suck this corner and I put my finger in here. (The opposite corner has a small hole) and I smell this corner and I go to sleep. with my own insomnia issues perhaps I should get myself a tags.

One last funny tidbit. Lily's school is in this brand new state of the art beautiful little school house. So her teacher has asked that they wear slippers inside. We bought Lily some ballet slippers. She fell in love and wants to wear them to bed. The other night I am awoken to this little voice calling me. I stumble to her room and ask what she needs. She says mommy I can't find my napping shoes. SERIOUSLY it's 3am. Napping shoes what might those be!! So the next evening I find myself telling my 4 year old in a very serious tone: that there will be no more napping shoes if you wake mommy up again in the middle of the night. Then I burst out laughing cause napping shoes are ridiculous.

I guess napping shoes are comfortable, yea 3am is a bit of an odd hour to have them requested. Glad she is doing so well. I made Maya an ABC book of her and pictures of things that statred witht he letter while we were in Guatemala, she still loves it. Poor blankie, I"m glad Maya loves her bear but knows that he stays int he house (unless we go camping or out of town) and she deosnt' suck on him so nothing gets stinky. Poor girl growing up is tough.
