1 - Grey and I get some one-on-one time. It's like he's the little sidekick that Sam used to be when he was the only one.
2 - I get to take care of some things around the house. Or rest. Really, I'd rather rest.3 - Sometimes I take advantage of the time and exercise. Sometimes.
4 - Sam is getting exposed to a different social environment. The biggest change I can see here is that he is really learning to share better and be more kind and gentle with Grey.
He's in a class of 8, 4 boys and 4 girls.
He told me Tuesday none of the girls were there. This morning, he casually said, "I hope da gurls will be back today." Glad you feel that way, buddy, glad you feel that way.
Also, with the cutest little smile, he told me the other day that his teacher was saying he's an angel. Cuuute, cute. Either she explained what that means or he just knows it's a good thing.
Now, every morning he has school, he tells me he doesn't want to go and pitches a mini-fit.
Every time, he ends up getting excited while we're sitting in carpool. Maybe it has something to do with getting to sit up front with me...
And every day he gets back in the iVan smiling and super happy telling me what a great day he had. (Sam, remember this when your kids tell you they don't feel good and they don't want to go to school.)
Also every day, he wants me to drive up and back down this tiny little hill in the parking lot.
