My "Baby" Girl

September 4th marked Alexandra's first official day of preschool! What made it even more real is that the UPK program is housed at her home elementary school (a pre-k through grade 5 building). I can't believe we have gotten to this point. My baby is a school-ager (kind of).

Dan brought her to orientation the day before, which lasted about an hour. I was bummed that I wasn't going to be the one to take her, since I had to work...AND that I wouldn't be able to drop her off and pick her up...BUT I will make sure I am there for her first day of kindergarten next year...even if that means taking the second day of work off for me!!!!

To put a kink in things, Tuesday was my first day back to work and, on the way to pick up the girls from daycare at about 3:30, my phone rings because Alex has a fever of 101.6. So she was sick all that day, threw up in her bed that night :( and was still sick for her orientation. It was only an hour, so Dan gave her advil so she could still go. The next day, she didn't go to daycare in the morning, but was able to do pre-school in the afternoon. AND.....she loved loved loved it!!!!!! I mean, seriously! She was bummed on Saturday when she couldn't go to preschool and keeps saying that she likes it "super more" than daycare, lol. I'm so glad she likes it and is excited about it!

So the remainder of the week went like this: Alex is pretty much all better by Thursday afternoon, I come down with a nasty cold and sore throat Friday and Saturday, Hayden is running a fever Friday and Saturday, and Dan has some sort of body ache/ virus Friday and Saturday. Ugh-the house of illness!!!! Welcome back to school/work, lol!

This week will be busy (and hopefully germ free!). We have gymnastics on Wednesday night and we start soccer again on Saturday morning. Not to mention, I'm starting my 24 day clean-eating challenge. I'm trying to jump start my new healthy way of life. Who knows....maybe this will get my pcos to calm the *bleep* down and get me ovulating. I'm not **planning** to have another baby, I will not do treatments again. BUT, if I'm ovulating, at least I can have a *choice* in the future to try for a third. Whether we do that or not...I don't know quite yet.

Look how big she is!!!!
