a magical item. Do you see it? It's what we call a lunchbox and it's going to school with Master Nicholas Quinn. Why, do you ask?
Today is the first day of his Enrichment Program at his Montessori. Instead of heading home at the normal 11:45 a.m. dismissal time, he will stay until 2:30 p.m., Monday-Thursday. Now, I know some might think this is *too soon*...but then you haven't met Nicholas in person.
He is a giant ball of energy. I love it (and him, too, of course), but lately, without another parent around (ever), it's taking a toll on me...and thus, him. So, to give myself a bit more time during the day (and don't forget, if I get into language classes at FSI, I'll need him in enrichment/after care), I signed him up for the program. He could not be more excited.
I mean, are you kidding me, he gets a new lunch box out of this! He gets to make lunch with Kelsey! He gets more Mabel's Labels tags w/Nicholas and construction designs all over them for his new lunch accoutrement. What could be more exciting?!
I'll tell you: time to run, nap and maybe tackle that ever-growing laundry pile....scratch that order, how about: nap....yeah, we will start there!
