It's a New Day

Two weeks ago today was Ava's first day in preschool. Loic (part time son) is in the same class as well.... which is why I think drop off went so smoothly. No tears were shed...other than mine...and she wanted to go back the next day. Let's hope this enthusiasm continues for the next 17 years.

She has already made some new friends and has her first crush.

"Mom, I made a new friend today. Mason is his name and we played together and sat together at snack."

"Is that so?"

"Uh huh, I asked him to be my best friend because I really like him."

"Sure sounds like it. What do you like about Mason?"

"He's nice but I like his face the most."

Air Supply

It was a balmy and humid 82 degrees this afternoon and I decided to run an oscillating fan instead of turning on the air. Earlier this evening, Ava went to get her notebook to practice writing and then went to the other side of the room to get her chair. She looked at the fan and sighed, "Why do you keep looking at me?"
