Hallie goes to Preschool
It's official. I have two kids in school. Mother of babies no more, my kids are getting so old! Hallie attended her first day of preschool yesterday, and she couldn't have been happier. She has been wanting to go to school ever since Dallas started two years ago. On a weekly basis she would cry every time we dropped Dallas off at school because she wanted to go too. I tried to explain to her that you had to be older to go to preschool, but that didn't stop the tears. So we were both very excited yesterday when she got to go for herself. She asked on the way to school if she had turned four, she must think that you have to be four to go to preschool. She's not quite four, but she is a rather independent, free spirited three-year-old.
Hallie is a source of laughter at our house. She's just a little bit crazy and a lot silly (I have a hard time getting a straight face out of her for a picture), kind of like her father. We love hearing her giggle. She is so sweet, and always tells me that I'm beautiful (I didn't teach her that, I swear). I went to pick her up from a Princess birthday party the other day, and when I walked in my friends started telling me how beautiful Hallie thinks I am. She likes to tell other people that too I guess. Since she likes to say it so often, I taught her a few other choice words: gorgeous, cute, pretty, smart. I figure we might as well mix it up a bit.
