Nui Nui's Second Full-Week Start At Her New School!

Yesterday was the start of Nui Nui's 2nd full week (day 4) at her new school. The past three times, she was sent to the principal's office for not sleeping through nap-time, waking up in a crying fit and disturbing some of the other kids. Today, this is what she looked like on the way to school...

Needless to say, she was very tired and I was worried she might be perceived as 'sad' in the morning (aka. tired) and still not able to sleep in her new environment, all disheveled. Poor kid.

I was running around when I got to school— I still don't have a routine yet and things are in different locations in this school— blanket goes in one spot, diapers in another, and I washed her milk cup in yet another. I thought Nui Nui was following me in all of this but right before my last stop, she lagged behind in the classroom. I thought, Great, she's interested in what the other kids are doing. But, no, she was really tired and didn't know where I went. I came back and she already had a pout pout on her face. The teacher told me she was waiting for her good-bye/that she didn't know where I went. I gave her a hug and kiss and told her to have a great day.

Tired tired tired. She began to cry as I walked out the room. The directora passed by, saw me standing outside the classroom door to listen, and she picked her up and took care of her. Within a minute she was ok and when I went to pick her up, they told me she had a great day— slept all through nap even :>.

They also started potty training. I brought 6 outfits for the occasion. Her teacher let me know that she only had two accidents. I say only because I thought that was pretty good— she was there a full day, 7:30am-5pm. More to come on those endeavors.

Anyway, here's her daily note, what she learned yesterday, and her newly updated spot at the table :>

And here she is after coming home and showered... I'm wondering if I'll need to enroll her in e-camp soon... Look how focused she was.

She peed twice, pooped one of those times, in the toilet and had one accident. Not terrible. Should I have been more on top of taking her to the bathroom, I think the last could have been avoided.

And that was our day. Nui Nui ate a very good dinner and we read On the Night You Were Born— she's really starting to love those Nancy Tillman books and continues to love the question: What's that?. It didn't take too too long to go to sleep. I mean, there was definitely a dance in the crib and some nudging before she actually settled down but once down, she was for the rest of the night.

We're in the midst of planning Nui Nui's birthday party, so if you have any suggestions for fun ideas, please...

Share in the Comments below, we'd love to hear! :> xoxo
