I took Alexander to school this morning. He’s sitting on the little toilet going potty before joining his friends, and he says to me, “Mommy, I like your dress.” I say, “Thank you so much buddy.”
Then he says, “Spin around.”
I do…his smile speaks volumes.
Sleeping at school is an unusual phenomena for a 3 1/2 year old who does not even take naps anymore. He has not stopped talking about it for a week now (and he only goes to full-day preschool one day a week – Wednesdays). So, now, I use this reference when I prepare him for the all-day Wednesday:
Mommy: Alexander, today you will go to school all day. Mommy won’t pick you up from the playground
Mommy: And you will eat lunch at school, and sleep at school.
Alexander: We sleep at school (laugh laugh).
Mommy: That’s funny isn’t it?
Alexander: Yes, we sleep at school (with a funny look on his face).
Mommy: Will Alexander sleep at school?
