Finally, “I’m older!”
When his older brother’s started school three weeks ago, Isaac was somewhat disappointed to learn that his school didn’t start until September. “But I’m older,” he would say, and didn’t understand this school districts need to start school the week before Labor Day (and neither did I). Thus, the first day of preschool began on a Friday, yesterday, and he LOVED it!
In the spare 2 1/2 hours I now have to myself, not that Isaac was a bad companion, I can now more easily do alone some of my more boring errands like oil changes, Dr. appointments, grocery shopping, or whatever other errands he hasn’t yet told me that he absolutely detests. I sure love my boy but am so happy that he gets to socialize with kids his own age and prepare for Kindergarten. He was somewhat disappointed when I told him he couldn’t bring his Luke Skywalker action figure but totally forgot about the old Jedi when he saw all of the castle toys and trains in his new school. Don’t worry, he came home and gave Luke the attention worthy of a son of Darth Vader, and I think he might have even told him all about his day, from snack time to a bunny he made entirely of circles and ovals. I bet Luke didn’t know what those shapes were until Isaac told him as he maintained that same blank stare that he always has.
