New Layout & Dylan's 1st day of Preschool

I FORCED myself to take some time for myself to do one of the challenges at my very favorite shoppe.
I did the Cookie Decorating 101 Challenge.
Let me tell you - this challenge was SO MUCH FUN...The template we were given was GORGEOUS - I just could not reist. I even spent a little money in the shoppe on Misty Cato's CUTIE PATOOTIE new kit called ABC & 123. I can seriously see myself using this kit over and over - it is so bright and fun.

Here is my cookie...


I cannot tell you how much fun I am having over there in the Sweet Shoppe Community as well, everyone is SO NICE! I love it.

I also used this adorable kit to create a little name tag for Dylan's backpack - I printed two copies and put them back to back in a little vinyl badge sleeve holder, added some ribbon and voila! Easy for him to identify his backback, and the teacher will know it is his as well. MUCH cuter than writing his name on it in indelible ink if you ask


Today was Dylan's VERY first day of Preschool *Sniff*
Dylan didn't sleep well last night and I ended up sleeping on the floor next to his bed. He woke up several times. Then I woke up and got ready for work, and then woke Bug up at about 6:45am. (The usual time) He was not too grouchy - A little bit, but after he went potty and brushed his teeth, he was fine. I got him dressed and got him a bowl of cereal and a banana while he watched the Wiggles on TV for a bit. He was in a good mood, but said his tummy hurt and he did not want the cereal because it had milk in it (weird I know). We put on his backpack and tried to snap a few pictures then off we went to school. Scott came with us to take him for his first day. We got to school and he seemed very excited. We went through a little gate where some other kids were playing and he just dropped his backpack and immediately began running laps around the play His teacher was not there yet, but they had a few other teacher's out there watching the kids. Dylan just ran around and was ready to play. Michelle showed us his classroom so we could put away his backpack and stuff and he will be in room 6. We came out to say good bye - he was still running all over the place - we could hardly get him to say bye to us. I told him we were leaving and if he got scared or needed anything to go see Miss Michelle (I think that was her name) and he said ok BYE - and then ran off. He wasn't sad at all... One of the other teachers said - "I take it he has been to preschool before?" I was like - NO - this is his first She says "WOW". I hope he is doing GREAT today and that he is still having a good time. The Director said I can call later to see how he is doing. It was a LOT easier that he was happy and excited and not crying and wanting me to stay (I kinda hoped he but this is best this way - I was able to keep my composure. I hope the rest of his day went GREAT - I can't wait to pick him up and ask him about his day. I will update with some pics later.





Oh......he did CRY when I picked him up - it broke my heart. It was if he thought I wasn't coming back and then was so relieved to see
Poor little guy. Miss Maria said that he did REALLY well all day and he only cried one time at nap time when they turned the lights out - he was calling for Mommy. Other than that he was good. He was tired last night and a little quieter than usual, but he seems ok so far. Daddy had bought him a special "First Day of School" strawberry cheesecake that we ate as a special treat for a special day. He loved it. When I asked him what he did at school today he said "I singed, and washed hands, and went to bed, and colored vegetables that grow in the ground".

  1. omg!! They are growing up so fast too fast. Dylan is absolutely adorable. Give him a big hug and kiss from autie T. I miss you, it seems like I am missing everything. The boys are great, getting really big. I hope they are as brave as Dylan on their first day of pre-school. If you have any tips for me that would be great. Joshua already started and the twins will start next year. I know I am going to have a hard time with them. I'll talk to you soon. I love you all!! Love, Tina
