Two of them, because it is a weekend and because I am turning over another leaf and mean to — for real, this time! — start posting tiny things more regularly.
1. The Bean started preschool, two days a week, at an immensely loveable place that is, get this, both next to a major construction site AND technically in a subway station. (Don’t fret: it’s above ground and not flecked with old gum or mysterious ceiling drips.) It’s hard to imagine a more perfect campus for him. More on this later? Probably.
2. Jackalope is NOT AT ALL PLEASED about being away from me for more than a few hours, far less if her company is someone other than Sugar. Her first long day with the babysitter is Wednesday; please pray for them both. And for us, lest the sitter quit. Jackalope’s track record with childcare at the coop is abysmal. Last time, they didn’t call me up to rescue her for an hour or so, by which point everyone had heard a great deal of crying. When I arrived, a small girl came running up to me, brimming with excitement.
“She said her first word! She said her first word!”
“That’s very exciting,” I replied.
“It was, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! That starts with A!”
