Getting schooled

First day of school today. Well, PRE school, but to E, it is all the same.

We were a little nervous. The crying fit at orientation did little to ease our minds.

BUT, today was awesome.

No tears and she loved it. The cupcakes and playground play seemed to help. :) They even told me she was a "sweet" girl when I picked her up. Awww....E, so proud of you!

Our little, no, BIG, girl on her way into school.

Alice and I spent some quality time while E was at school. Okay, maybe not. Maybe the trainer and I spent some QT while Alice slept on the floor.

My view from the trainer.

I managed to eke out a a 40 minute ride in while she lounged on the floor and I watched "Dan in Real Life" on OnDemand. Not too bad. I am so excited to have my workout done before 7:30pm. A rare feat post-Alice.

I am 6 weeks post partum today. 8 lbs from pre baby weight. Had my OB pp check up today and bailed on it. Hearing the words --- "Dr. Houston (my doc) is an hour behind on patients" while sitting in the waiting room elicited an almost Pavlovian response in me. My butt was out of there almost immediately. Who has time to sit there just to have them say "you're fine"?

Apparently, not me.

Oooh, that is a big day! Go E! I know that we're pensive about Ava's first day of school. Glad to hear it went well and that you got to spin it out at the same time!
