Today was Xavier’s preschool Christmas party. Aaron and I both had the chance to go with him which was so much fun. There where so many kids there it was chaotic. Nikki put me in charge of the Gingerbread House station. I think I will be dreaming of frosting for the next couple of weeks.

The kids got to build houses, make ornaments, color a gingerbread man, listen to the Polar Express, have a Christmas inspired memory game, and to top it off they had a book exchange. I think all of the kids went home on a sugar and adrenaline high.

First Day of Preschool 2008

First Day of Preschool 2008

Xavier went back to preschool last month. Both of us were so excited but for different reasons. I think it is nice to have a little quite time once in a while, even though I miss him by the end of the three hours. He was looking forward to having fun with his teachers, who are great friends of ours, and the new kids that would be in his class. He always tells me that he likes new things.

Last week Mrs. Nikki had her baby, just a tad early, and I was able to go in and help with the class so that Mrs. Heidi didn’t have to control a very full preschool all on her own. There was another mom who also volunteered for the day. X thought it was great that I was going to be there all day. I was helping with the 3 year olds. I have a new appreciation for my friends and the fact they are sane after each day. I guess that goes to show you that a teacher is one of the best people in a child’s life.
