Plodding along…

Well, Linlee is making her teachers earn their bucks. She went to school happily enough, but was crying before I even got out of the room. The problem wasn’t that I was leaving. The problem was that Linlee was directed over to the books (which is what the children do at the beginning of each …

The Preschool Report

Linlee was off from school for five days (due to the weekend, snow and a teacher’s work day). She was fine going back, though. Yay! No fuss as we pulled up to the school and headed to the classroom. She seemed ready to play and didn’t mind me leaving. I was so relieved! But at …

Age Three and The Jumpy Place

Our easy going little peanut is turning into a higher maintenance child of late. I know that Laura from Ladybugs and Dragonflies is loving age three. I wish I could say the same. It was a breeze parenting Linlee through age one and age two. She really presented no challenges (aside from her delays). In …

Snow Day!

No preschool today due to snow. Normally I’d be excited about this, but I actually had plans I was looking forward to while Linlee was supposed to be in school. Drat! Anyhow, had to take advantage of the photo opportunity this morning and took Linlee outside to play. Last year, she wasn’t keen on the …

Two Tales of Banana Bread Woe

Last week I made a really good loaf of banana bread. Our naughty dog, Duncan, stole the last third of it off the counter. (Yes, same dog who stole the entire box of cookies the week before. Duncan has been through three levels of obedience training and one course in “manners” and yet he is …

Lots of pictures!

So today’s assignment was to take Linlee to her school playground and see if we could get her to have some fun. It’s so perplexing that she does not like recess. Linlee has always enjoyed playing outside and has never minded other children being around, so we just can’t figure out what the problem is. …

Yee-Yee

I was looking at a picture of Linlee this morning and she joined me. I pointed to her picture and asked, “Who is that?” She answered “Yee-Yee.” Hey, that’s not too far off. (Well, maybe it is, but it’s a start and it’s darn cute.) I still prefer Rachel’s nickname for Linlee, which is “Lin …

Brrr…

When Linlee woke up from her nap this afternoon, I took her outside in the backyard for a little bit. Even though I bundled her up, she looked shocked when I first pushed her on the swing. I think the cold breeze made by swinging was too much. It wasn’t long before she was visibly …

Little Gym

I took my mini video camera to Little Gym today. Just as I was getting the hang of using it, it ran out of batteries. Doesn’t that just figure? But here are two short clips of Linlee and the other kids having fun…
