GPOYW (a day late)

GPOYW - Polished parent? edition.  I took this while I was heading out the door yesterday to WonderGirl's first parent/teacher conference.  I wanted to look as responsible as I could.  I even wore mom capris:

I don't know if it worked.  Of course now I'm freaking out because she's too far ahead of the other kid and spends too much time making art and writing letters to people instead of playing in the dramatic play area with the other girls.  So of course the world has just come to a complete and utter stop while I panic and run around the house screaming.

Not really, but I'm still a little nervous.  This IS her third year of being in a class where they're learning the alphabet.... again... it's only a matter of time before they call me in because she's trying to hotwire the teacher's car.

Will it take your mind off things if I tell you how much you look like your aunt and cousin in that first picture?

Alexander was also way too far ahead in his preschool program but too young for the public schools to take him, so . . . We found a private pre-K/K blend program that was, as Goldilocks would say, "just right." Best thing we ever did for him. Thus far. (He's in full K this year, and still way brilliant, but at least they were prepared this time after last year.)

HEAR YE. I need to document the fact that I ran 3 miles and didn't feel like death.  So just to make sure it wasn't a fluke, I did...
