Yesterday I volunteered to help at Miss's school because one of her teachers had to be out for a funeral. It was a really fun experience. I loved getting to watch her in her space and get to know some of the kids she goes to school with. I was quite a novelty to many of the kids, who got a kick out of my big belly and kept asking about the baby, poking my belly, etc. One little girl was especially sweet. She sat next to me every time the class sat down to listen to a story, sing songs, or do other learning activities all together (weather, calendar, etc.). She hugged me. She said she loved me. She was that super sweet and lovey little girl that every preschool class probably has at least one of. Then it happened. After looking at and asking me several questions about my belly, she asked a different question. "Do you have a baby in your butt?" Um. No. But thanks so much Sweet Little Girl. Thanks a million times for asking me that. Man. Kids say the darnedest things.
I really wanted to take some photos of Miss at school, but I was afraid my big camera would be disruptive and wasn't really even sure about sneaking some with my phone. I was supposed to be helping after all. So, these photos aren't from school, but I still love them. It amazes me how quickly my big girl's (and my little girl's, for that matter) skills are increasing. Miss is getting very good at coloring in the lines and can draw a wicked smiley face now.
It was wonderful to have a special day with her at her school yesterday.
