|First Day of 4th Grade!|
|1st Day of 1st Grade|
I think Tanner had the hardest time with the kids going back to school this year. For the last year I've been doing child care from my home and Thursday was my last day as I transition into a new job working in a holistic health office. Anyway, Tanner's pretty used to there being other kids around so today when his siblings went to school and there were no day care babies around, he kind of freaked out. We got home from dropping off the big kids and he had two immediate melt downs. By 10am I had given in to a Popsicle AND a chocolate chip cookie. It was that kind of day. Then he kind of figured out he had me all to himself and he was not about to let me out of his sights! I tried to call my mom today and he would NOT get off my lap. Climbing, pawing, whining. I'd slide him off and he'd slide right back on. I'd nudge him towards the toys and he'd grab my hand and pull. I told my mom "He's like a sticky booger!Not matter how hard I flick, I can't get him off of me!!" She just laughed and told me to enjoy it while I can. So I did. We cuddled and watched one of my favorite movies , Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium. He played under my feet while I folded laundry and then "helped" me put it all away. Then we had some lunch and walked down to the school to pick up the kids. I'm really looking forward to being able to spend more one on one time with Tanner. He's such a funny little boy!
He loves to pretend he's my husband and will talk on his pretend phone to Jon's boss and drivers. It's pretty cute to watch.
I'm pretty lucky to have such awesome kiddos. I'm going to miss the older ones as they will be gone most of the day but I'm really fortunate in this new opportunity to work less and spend more time with my kids and still be able to provide financially for my family. I love it! More later :)
