Pebbles: "I totally go to preschool. It's 5 minutes a day, 4 days a week."

Lately Pebbles has really started to enjoy dropping Nutmeg off at preschool. They have a little wooden rocking toy sort of like a rowboat there, which she loves to get in and say, "whee!"

Today I was Snack Mom, so Pebbles got to be at preschool for about an hour. Times have changed since earlier this year, when I would nurse her and put her down in the stroller to sleep or carry her on my back while doing Snack Mom duty!

Pebbles sat at the table with the other kids and ate the snack -- Dunkin Donuts Munchkins. She may not be a big eater, but she knows gourmet when she tastes it, and she gobbled up the whole thing.

During Circle Time she kept toddling up to the front of the class to point at the calendar like Nutmeg and the teacher were doing, and shout out sounds that kind of sounded like numbers. "Toooo. Deee!" She got right into it when the kids sang some songs. Then Nutmeg held her on her lap for awhile, until Nutmeg got too roudy and started rolling around the floor with her and I had to confiscate the baby.

At school the kids call Pebbles "Nutmeg's baby." I love that. They all thing Nutmeg has her own baby.

This fall, Pebbles will still be at home with me, of course. But the next year, when Nutmeg starts (all-day) kindergarten, Pebbles will be able to go to the Park District's playschool for 2 hours at a time. I have a feeling she will like that.
