well, I can't be right all the time!

I used to think that sending a two year old to preschool was more for the parent's benefit than the child's. I say "used to" because I have changed my mind. Although I do enjoy the break from my toddler...he has benefited from it more than I have. He talks so much more and I can actually understand him. Before it was like he was speaking in tongues, almost like he received his prayer language before learning English.

He pooped on the potty within 2 weeks of going to school, he made friends and talks about them and loves going to school and leaving his mama...for a few hours. He runs over to his Diego book bag and screams with excitement...which melts my heart.

I have seen him change and become more social than ever before, although we are still working on the hitting and hording of toys! He loves to sit down with his little lunch box and lay all his food out and eat the good stuff first, leaving dessert for last.

I have to be honest and tell you that I have had to sacrifice a lot to send him but I am realizing that it is so worth it!!!
