Addi's First Day of MDO

Yesterday, Addi went to her very first day of "school." Okay so it was only Mother's Day Out for a few hours, but still. :) She was SO excited to go. I think she thought she would ride on a school bus though, because when we passed one she had a really confused look and said, "I ride?" She was also so proud to carry her backpack. She's growing up. :(
I also tried in vain to get her to look at the camera and smile, but this is all I could do. Haha! It's so hard to get pictures these days.
Headed to the car!
When I dropped her off at her classroom, she walked in and never looked back. I knew she wouldn't cry, but I was at least hoping for a "bye mama!" Nope! Proud of that big girl. :) She did so great according to her teacher. Ms. Maria noted that she loves goldfish. Haha! She also colored a beautiful picture of a giraffe. After I picked her up, we just walked over to the little cafe and play area for some lunch with friends. Addi requested a cookie and I thought she deserved it.
She took a LONG nap when we got home. Getting up early and playing hard really takes it out of a girl!
Funny Moments from yesterday:
  • I realized Tuesday night that I had forms to fill out and supplies to gather before Wednesday. Oops. I realized that at 9 pm too. It was still fun picking out supplies!!!
  • We tried to give Dixie her rabies vaccine last night. Oh my word. What an ordeal. We tried EIGHT times and at one point the needle was stuck in her!!! Everytime Josh would stick her she would go crazy and try to bite us! We felt horrible afterwards.
  • Addi was in bed last night and had been really quiet for 30 minutes or so after we laid her down. She started screaming saying "there's a snake!!!" I jumped out of bed and ran in there and grabbed her, then went back and looked in her bed. Josh was laughing so hard. I knew there wouldn't be a snake, but I thought maybe a bug?? Nope. While she was laying in bed with us she said "there's the snake using the potty!" and pointed to the bathroom. No clue where that came from!
Hope y'all have had a great week!
