My Babies....Are going to Pre-K!
Here they were 4 wks old wearing baby doll clothes!
Eli was just under 6 lbs and Sara was just above 5 lbs.
My have they grown! I can't believe how fast time
has gone by. I still can remember the days I spent
in the hospital trying to keep them from coming too
early! Then the days in the NICU, thank God
it was only for 3 weeks but it was a long time
for us as a family - I had two little boys at
home that need me too!
Here they are looking so grown up at their
Aunt Nennie's wedding! Naturally Sara is leading!
Tomorrow they start pre-K. Sure it's only for
3 hours a day but I haven't been apart from
them for that long since they were in the NICU!
Reason I am sending them...
Well for one its a free service here in IL if they
meet the criteria. Which they do! But really
its for them. I have seen how pre-K really helped
Kristofer socially. I believe this will help
Eli and Sara break away from always being
with each other. Not that there is anything wrong
with that! I love that they enjoy being with
each other. But I want them to be independent of
each other to. They have a tendency to rely on each
other so much that I am afraid it may hinder
them when they enter Kindergarten.
Plus this will give Sara a chance to play with
other little girls her age. It's hard for her
to always have just the boys to play with.
We (Sara & I) play dollies and house
but sometimes Mommy is not enough.
Sara told me today, "I can have lots of
girl friends and I don't have to play with Eli."
-Yes Sara- "But Mommy I want Eli to have
friends to but I have to be his best friend."
Eli says in response, "Sara you are my bestest
friend and sister!"
So tomorrow I let my babies go...just for a little while.
