Wooohooo! Nora was accepted into the five-day mixed age kindergarten at our Waldorf school of choice for the 2010-2011 school year. She will also attend aftercare offered through the school. This is great news, as she won’t be splitting her week between two places. We are quite sure she’ll thrive in her new environment.
Nora’s cough is much better, though not gone. She’s back at school today, which is good, as we were getting a bit testy with one another. At one point, while I was pretend sleeping in an effort to compel her to nap, she tried to gouge my eyes out. Then she asked for her daddy. Sometimes I wonder if I could handle being a stay-at-home mom. I try to remind myself that being home with a sick child is not the same as being home with a well child. Thanks to my friend and neighbor, Sandi, for giving me a bit of a break yesterday, and to my mother-in-law, Deb, for the pep talk.
