Post Valentine's day!

Hola, getting the kids ready for bed soon. I'm organizing some pictures and this one of me and my BFF's really makes me smile.

We had brunch at Fatty Cue in Brooklyn for Pearl's birthday and I have to say that it was the best brunch I ever had. I had a sampling of everyone's food, all 6-7 plates, and everything was delicious!!! And Ella just enjoys sucking on her fingers.

I'm salivating thinking about the food haha, but I leave today's rather random post with a post-Valentine's day card.

KryssiNg - 02Feb2010 - Falling For You 2

Love my Paper Smooches stamps!

I'll be pretty MIA from here on (even more so than usual). I have to finish up a bunch of projects by the end of this week. I'm not sure how much time I'll have afterwards, because starting next week, Audrey will be officially discharged from her preschool for being too advanced. Since September 2009, she's been attending a preschool for children with special needs. She qualified for services because she had a severe speech delay at the time. Fast forward to the present, her teachers and therapists have determined that she is extremely high functioning and have caught up to the level that is appropriate for her age and even exceeding the standards. I am really proud of her, of course. But this is happening in the middle of the school year it leaves me in a bit of a dilemma. All the universal pre-ks and regular schools are already at maximum capacity. Trust me, we've been wait-listing since last year when we were first told to be prepared for this possibility. Really stinks. So, she'll be home, until the Summer when hopefully we'll enroll her in a program. I just hope she doesn't go through school withdrawal anxiety. She gets really antsy whenever there is a week-long break from school, constantly telling me she wants to go to school. It's gonna be a big challenge having her at home for the next 4 months, at the minimum! I have to figure out a schedule that will be beneficial for all of us. I hope to find a groove that will include reading and learning for her, then quiet time when Ella naps while I get some work done. I've been dreading this day for a long time, lol... yes, I am panicking, but at least Spring is right around the corner! And I do love my Audrey Bee, to pieces. I will stay positive and try to enjoy this time with her until she is off to kindergarten in September... and for the next 18 years!

  2. I'm salivating just thinking about the food YOU had!! Love the sweet appple card! I feel for you for having an active and intelligent child who likes to go to school, but NO school to go! Well,home-schooling can be challenging, but I'm sure you will find the rhythm/routines in time. When you look back some day, you will actualyl MISS it--trust me!!(as my DD left me for college and will go to grad school---wahhhwaaahh)!

  4. Such a fun card! :> That's really awesome that your daughter has been discharged! I know it puts you in a bind but it's better that she has caught up! I have a daughter in kindergarten and know how it can be. Maybe put her some programs, like ballet, gymnastics, swimming, I am sure you can find some spring sessions during the day to break up her day a bit! Or I know that there is a DVD set out there to get kids to read all on DVD it's probably hours long and it's some weird technique but it could keep her busy! LOL that last one was an odd one but I thought I would throw it out there!

  6. Don't worry, you'll do fine! We moms have a way of adjusting quickly and finding routines. It will be valuable time together for the two of you...maybe a bit stressful at times, but great relationship building. Good luck on getting your projects done!
