I just realized in less than a month and a half, I will have a 2 year old (!!) who will be in preschool three days a week. WHAAAA? Don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to him heading to preschool, getting the socialization and skills he needs, but I’m still left wondering, “How did this happen?” I’m certainly not old enough to have a 2 year old, let alone one who goes to school. That’s crazy talk.
But he is going to school. And I need to prepare. And I suppose he needs to be prepared too. So I went to my bookstore (also know as Amazon.com) and ordered this cute book, “Preschool Day, Hooray!“
