Today was a good day...

I smiled at Trevor this morning, and he told me that he really liked it when I smiled at him. Then he reminisced about himself at 3 years old and remarked what good memories he had from the time when he was 3. He misses his 3 year old self a little. Then we took them to school where drop off was completely and totally painless. This might be a honeymoon phase and may change, but for the moment, I choose to believe it will be this easy forever.

When I picked the boys, Devin was fast asleep and stayed asleep for another 2 hours. Trevor told me that he loved the lunch I had packed for them, calling it "fantastic." Wow. No one has ever called my food preparation skills "fantastic." That was a wonderful compliment. He also told me that he likes his new teachers. They are new and they are all nicer than his old teachers. When we first started talking about this school before we moved, I told him he would have nice, new teachers. He asked, "Will they all be as nice as Ms. Leslie?" This was kinda funny to me because Ms. Leslie, at his old school, was just about the nicest kindergarten teacher I had ever met. She controlled kids with her absolute niceness. So, that he wanted teachers as nice as her was sweet. I think he got them, too.

Then, we had snacks. Do you know that peanut butter on graham crackers tastes just like Nutter Butter cookies? No kidding. They're really tasty. It's such a huge discovery for me that I want to share with the world. Did everyone already know just how good PB and GC are?? Try the PB and GC soon. Oh, and melon balls. Apparently, both watermelon and cantaloupe taste better when shaped like a ball. Try those. Helps make lunch "fantastic." I have a little tiny ice-cream like scoop that I think is for making cookies. But, maybe it's a melon baller, because it performs that task quite nicely. Well worth the expense if you don't have one already. It's way easier than cutting up a a melon into bite sized chunks and less messy for toddlers, big boys and their moms to eat, too. Melon Balls. Not just for fancy parties...

That's it. I'm really tired now, and it was a really good day...

Hey sounds like the boys are going to really like it there, that is great. I know you are still trying to put your house together so it is no wonder you are just a little tired.
Love you all,
MOM
