I finally got brave enough to get Milo some playdough. His teacher said he was not wanting to color in class to I should work with him at home and try to get him to color. He does color at home but not that much it's just not something he's really interested in. So we made the trek to Hobby Lobby and got some washable markers and a tray to color on. While on the color isle I saw some playdough and thought that might get him interested in crafts more than markers. So far he really likes it! I'm a little leery though. I can foresee regretting this decision when the playdough is ground into my carpet. Even if I regret it it was a pretty good photo op. :)

1st Day of PDO

Milo went to his first day of PDO today!!! He was very excited to go to school. Dropping him off went great, neither of us cried. He looked so adorable carrying his back pack and lunch box in! The only blip in the morning was that I was running late so we arrived a few minutes late. But I got pics anyway! He looked so adorable carrying in his back pack and lunch box!

So happy to be headed to school!

Trying to wave bye to Mama and Daddy. We walked him in anyway :)

Marching in the front door.

He was stopped for a photo op!

His cubby

He wasted no time getting to the business of playing!

Imaginary Friends

They say that 2 1/2 to 3 is the time when imaginary friends start showing up. I'm not sure if Milo does actually have an imaginary friend but I do know that he will carry on a 2 sided conversation with himself. He'll ask himself a question and then answer it (often times in an exasperated voice!). The other day he was playing in the sand box in the backyard and I had the window open so I could keep an ear on him. I noticed he was carrying on a 2 sided conversation with himself as he was dumping sand in little piles around the porch. I poked my head out the window and asked him what he was doing and he said very matter-of-factual and without missing a beat "feeding the monsters." LOL! How cute is that!?!

School Daze!

Milo will be starting PDO this year. I'm a half excited about it and half sad. He'll only be going two days a week but I still wonder sometimes if we should have waited another year. Because of where his birthday falls he'll be going into the 2 year old class even though he'll be 3 shortly after school starts. I'm perfectly ok with that, being more physically and emotionally developed will give him an advantage st least in the younger grades.

We got his backpack and lunch box in the other day! It's so cute I can't even stand it! Milo is very into monsters recently so when I found this one I knew it was the backpack for him, plus the lunch box came free with it so that didn't hurt either!
