My little learner
However, we went to school as planned just to pick up some paperwork. While there, Aspen didn't' cough once, so her teacher suggested I let her stay. I was like SEE YA! Aspen had so much fun and she has enjoyed going to preschool for the last week.
My only problem is picking her up; she insists she's starving to death even though I know they get a snack in preschool. Regardless, she complains the whole drive home, and Linc is usually screaming, too, because he's ready for a nap but won't fall asleep in the car. It's a really, really fun drive.
To avoid this meltdown in the 45 minutes between pickup and lunch being on the table, I think we'll set up a routine. Aspen loooooves routines. Since she doesn't have time in the morning (it literally takes her 2 hours to get ready for 9am preschool) for TV, we'll plan that as soon as we get home from preschool, she can watch a show while I put Linc down for a nap and then prepare lunch. Perhaps if she has that to look forward to without fail, it won't be so hard to come home and wait a few minutes for lunch.
And if this doesn't work, then I'll just stop picking her up from preschool (I kid, I kid).
