I can’t believe how much he talks!

August 9th, 2005 · 3 Comments · Family Life

I am so not motivated today. The Husband took me out to lunch and I stuffed myself with good chips, salsa and cheese dip. The downside of all that Mexican food at lunch is it just makes me want to take a nap. And the heat! Have I mentioned it is HOT. I mean oven baking, egg frying, hair curling HOT. It rained a day or so ago and the humidity from that hasn’t added anything nice to the outside.

The heat is making me unmotivated and wanting a nap today too.

I have four or five bankruptcies I should be working on but I just look at them hanging nicely on my cubicle wall and surf the web some more.

I have checked my BlogLines. I have noted all my friends. I have gone to some of my friends friends blogs and noted them too. Come on people. I need to be entertained today!

We’ve found a new pre-school for the BoyChild. It is close to home and while they too want him to be potty trained, they are willing to work with us toward that goal. The nice Jewish Pre-School wasn’t very flexible on that point. The Baba was disappointed the BoyChild won’t be going to the nice Jewish Pre-School this fall.

The Baba was quizzing me about the credentials of the teachers at the Nice Presbyterian Pre-School, “do the teachers have early child-hood development degrees?” WTF? Early child-hood development degrees?!? I think his teacher last year was an engineer in her pre-mom life. Where did that come from?

The Baba was very impressed with the nice Jewish Pre-School. I was too. And I liked it there. But I was concerned that the BoyChild didn’t talk to them there. And I wondered if that meant he didn’t like it there. About the middle of last year, he stopped wanting to go, and didn’t want me to leave once we got there. He seemed contented when he was there but he wasn’t enthusiastic about going, and would grab my feet and say, “no Mommy, stay with me. Don’t go!” when it came time to leave and I would have to wait until he was distracted by something before I could slip out.

The first thing everyone who has every spent any amount of time with the BoyChild says to me is, “I can’t believe how much he talks.” The BoyChild wakes up in the morning talking and continues to make observations and conversation ALL.DAY.LONG. This morning I woke up, nose to nose with the BoyChild. When I opened my eyes he said, “Mommy, it’s a beautiful day!” before running off to share his insight with his Daddy who was already downstairs making my coffee.

So, I’m hoping they tell me at the new Pre-School, “I can’t believe how much he talks!” in that really good way of course.

    I’m a little sad that I won’t be seeing you at the Jewish school twice a week, but the Presbys are nice too (I’m sure I told you this in person, but we looked at that preschool and were very impressed).

    And oh my god what is that with the talking talking talking! My two are outside talking to themselves–together!–right now. Shut the hell up already!

    But I love them, really I do. Really.

    Hooray for the new school!

    I’ve always wondered why we don’t adopt the Spanish siesta. Like it doesn’t get hot here, too? I would be so much more productive after a nice nap. That, and if blogs went away forever.

    Glad you found a preschool that fits. Between you and Susan, I’m thinking about home schooling. ;P
