Dishes, Preschool and the in between…

So Gannon loves to clean…well let me rephrase that!

He likes to move clothes to the washer/dryer and help take them out.

He likes to help unload the dishwasher, right now I put all the sharp knives away and he does the rest of the silverware all by himself. It is ADORABLE! He is SO focused at the task at hand he goes into this daze.

But it is a knock down drag out battle for me to get him to pick up his toys…

So we are cleaning the playroom and donating toys and putting the baby toys away for baby #2 whenever that happens.

Putting the silverware away…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Preschool has now been in session for 5wks

Everyone told me to give Gannon a month before he would be okay with the drop off.

Well THEY WERE RIGHT!!

So let me start at the beginning…Every time I would drop him off at school I would be there at LEAST 15 mins with him because he was SO up set. So last week (week 4) he would be fine and singing about school and ready to go, well we would get 10 feet from the classroom door and he would turn and run back to the main doors. Sometimes I chased him sometimes I didn’t, I didn’t want it to become a game.

So I let his teacher chase him, LOL

While she was chasing him I left through the side door, after I knew that she caught him(I could see through the window) I would leave feeling horrible that he was so upset.

I want this to be a good experience for him, not something that he remembers that is sad.

This kid REMEMBERS EVERYTHING!!

So that brings us to week 5…

Last week beginning of week 5 he was a TOTALLY different kid!

We always go over what he will do at school before bedtime to get him excited about school the next day.

On the way to school we were making up songs and singing and he told me that he was going to have “A good day!” So I said back to him “Yep, you are! You are going to do sand art and it is going to be SO much fun!”

He also informed me that I am NOT allowed in his classroom and that he was. So I agreed with him…

We get to school late that day and as soon as we got there he kissed me goodbye waved and ran into the class shutting the door on me…Not sure what was in the Benadryl that I gave him the night before but it worked!

NO TEARS, NO SCREAMING and NO MOM RUNNING OUT THE SIDE DOOR!

AMEN!

So Wednesday was the same routine except we got there early… the classroom doors don’t open till 9:30 and we got there a few mins before so we were standing in the hall waiting and Gannon kissed me and told me to leave…WHAT, I can’t leave you in the hall by yourself!

So we went from screaming & running to kisses, waves and telling me to leave early???

Next thing I know he will just have me drop him off at the main entrance…LOL

Hope everyone is staying warm!! I know I am FREEZING my butt off!

Have a great Friday!!
