Today has been a special day. This is the day that I, as a mommy, participated in my Doodle’s school activities for the first time. Little Sunshine’s Playhouse Preschool had a Turkey Day Potluck in celebration of next weeks holiday and invited all parents to join. The school was decked out with decor and copious amounts of food. The kiddos had completed art work; hats, place-mats, turkeys, etc, to decorate the room and prepare table settings. It was beautiful, well orchestrated and a very special lunch indeed.

Mom, Avery and I sat together and dined. We talked about school and Avery’s friends. Avery introduced us to her classmates and told us about her morning. As much as she could with a mouth full of cookie. It was a big deal to eat the turkey’s tummy and Santa’s belt off of her cookies. After a while mom and I gave up our seats to allow other kiddos who had just loaded their plates a seat at the table. We took pictures and got to know the other little surrounding Avery. It was time to go, with a bit of preparation, some well orchestrated warnings and a lot of snuggles mom and I were headed out, our turkey day preschool adventure complete.
But, you guys… Doodle had a best friend and a boyfriend. I use both terms loosely as my toddler is three years old. However, she does come home talking about her friend E all the time and Miss Gina indicated today that G is the love of her life. To watch my tiny human interact with friends, friends not through mommy, but friends at school. To watch the friendships she has developed all on her own. To watch how all these littles look out for one another. How they all talk to each other and communicate. The way they interact and follow the rules and play and smile and laugh. The way they know just what to do when they are done eating and it is time to get prepared for nap time… Oh you guys, Avery is growing up.
