WELL... Lily graduated from preschool and she is more than happy to tell everyone she is going to kindgergarten soon. She is ready to start kindergarten ASAP... in fact she mentioned once or twice in the last few months that preschool is ridiculous.
Ty will have one more year of preschool. He has been receiving speech therapy at a local elementary school (once a week). In the fall he will attend preschool there and he is really excited about it. During our once a week visit he spends 30 mins with a speech therapist and 30 mins with his future preschool teacher. He likes his speech therapist and he really likes his future preschool teacher. Judging by how shy he gets around her I think he has a little crush. He even knows her favorite color is pink.
OH MY.....it seems I was just dropping Lily off to her first day of preschool... then I blinked and Ty was also in preschool.... in just a few months I'll be watching them both get on a school bus....
BUT until then....
We are going to have LOTS of summer FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
****Just a little note about my last post... the tiny vs. petite.... Lily has no issue with being told she is CUTE. Let me tell ya... she has no ego trouble. She just doesn't like the tiny comment and so far adults are the only ones that call her tiny. Her classmates don't say anything of the sort (yet) and I hope they don't. She is petite but she is mighty. Just ask Ty about that... she can still take him down in a second. I only mention this because (for some strange reason) he feels the need to test her strength every so often and it is NEVER a good idea.... because she isn't going to tolerate that kind of nonsense (her words).
****Thank you for all the sweet comments on that post****
Well it has been brought to my attention that Lily doesn't like it when people call her tiny.....
It is no secret that she is small in stature.... but she is MIGHTY..... and for some reason people tell her daily that she is tiny.
I've noticed the last few times people have said... OH SHE IS SO TINY...It is usually followed by... OH SHE IS SO CUTE... Lily gets very quiet afterward. I kindly point out to them that she is just the size she is suppose to be.
After noticing that this bothered her I had a talk with her today... Me~ Lily what do you think when people say you are tiny? Lily~ I don't like it mom. It doesn't seem very nice. Me~ I can understand that. Lily ~ Is it nice when they say that? Me~ When people comment that you are tiny they don't mean it in a hurtful way. They think you are so cute and they don't think about how the word tiny might make you feel. Perhaps they should use the word petite. I told her that she could certainly let people know she prefers the word petite. If in fact she is ok with the word petite. (of course I told her the meaning of the word) Lily~ I like that plan mom! Petite sounds fancy!
Then I gave her a big smooch and told her she is my beautiful BIG girl!
