You are 80 months old.
But before we get to how you have adjusted to school, let's take a look back at the end of summer. Nana came specifically to spend the last part of summer with us but also to be here so she could meet your teachers and see your new school. As usual, you loved having the extra attention that only a grandmother can provide.
You thoroughly enjoyed the end of school bash in our neighborhood, spending 2 hours sliding down slides and eating frozen ice treats. One of the the best things you've discovered is that, even though you don't have classes with your neighborhood friends like Emme and Sophia, you still get to see them at lunch and on the playground.
As we were watching the Olympics you remarked, "Rhythmic gymnastics looks like ballet while throwing things around."
"If Audible isn't working I guess we can listen to the yelling music that Daddy likes."
You: Maybe Daddy will play with me when he comes downstairs.
Nana: Maybe, but it's almost your bedtime.
You: Really? That's bad. Well...it's good for you guys so you can have boring grown-up time...but it's bad for me.
You asked if your new locker would have a lock. I said that no, the lockers aren't locked but that you wouldn't be keeping valuables like money or jewelry in it, just your books and lunch. You replied, "Books are valuable! To me!"
Daddy was getting ready to hang your chair from the ceiling. You looked at the rope and said, "Do you think that rope has enough tensile strength to hold me?"
Daddy: "Do you know what the word 'tensile' means?"
You (rolling your eyes): "The ability of the rope to hold a certain amount of weight."
Lucy asked me, "Why don't you have any mosquito bites?!"
You answered, "Because her blood is old." #nofilter #waytomakeyourmamafeelgood
