She’s been begging all semester to come to preschool with her. I finally did, and the memories came flooding back of when I would go spend a day with big brother at preschool a few years back. Any day is a great day to go to preschool with my girl, but man, I really picked a fun one by accident this time. First up, the pledge of allegiance of course. For a 4 year old, I’m in awe that she knows the whole thing after only weeks of starting school. With eyes of wonder, her teacher read them the story of The Little Gingerbread Man. It was felt character magic for their little eyes. I wonder if she thinks the Gingerbread man is real, as I did when I was her age. It was a class effort to put together all the ingredients to make our gingerbread man cookies. They held their hands behind their backs and were so patient waiting for their individual turns to stir the cookie batter. It was then cookie cutting time. Complete with candy eyes and buttons. And then into the oven they went. While we waiting for our Gingerbread men to finish baking, the kids had some center time. It was so fun to see what Sam gravitated towards. Of course she chose the little dress up spagetti people, which doesn’t surprise me one bit. And then it was off to do some art, followed by playing in the class kitchen. The kids were so excited to finally get too eat their gingerbread cookies that they worked so hard on. They were delicious! Spending this morning with my girl has been all sorts of fun. Can’t wait to go back.
