That's my girl!

It reads: "For a great 1st week of school!"
Avery is still LOVING school. She goes to bed earlier, obeys more, and is just down right a good kiddo right now. She is doing such a great job in school, and we are so happy that she loves to go. I can only imagine how hard it would be to drop off a screaming/crying child! I am doing really well with it also. The key is Daddy dropping her off. I think walking away from her would be a hard reality for me, so he gets to take that job. Livvie and I get to pick her up with fun hugs, so it's not at all depressing!
Tonight, Avery and I went to Walmart. She loves to go down the plastic flower aisle. She picked out a baby blue hydrangea flower to give to Mrs. P tomorrow...how sweet! What teacher wouldn't love a fake long stemmed flower that you don't know what to do with? :)
OH, I almost forgot.....my Livvie has her 2nd cold! Of course, I look to see where it came from! It's either from having her around 2 other kiddos for 30 minutes on Sunday morning, OR it's from the wind blowing on her the last couple of days as we went to get Avery. Whatever it is, I STILL hate it! Lots of snot around our house!

I go through the same thing with the colds. My little ones stay home with me so I wonder how they can get them so often. After 2 years I have finally figured it out...they're getting colds from the germs my two older ones bring home from school. My older kids immune systems are stronger because they're at school all day around all that gunk but it doesn't stop them from bringing home the germs and passing it on to my little ones.

Just make sure Avery's hands are washed everyday the second she comes home from school. You say you and Livvie get to give her a big hug as soon as you pick her up, well...that's when Avery is passing her those LOVELY cold germs. The good thing is, the longer Avery is at school and around that stuff, the stronger BOTH of their immune systems will get!

Hey...! Why didn't WE think of that? THAT'S where Livvie got her cold!

You'd think we'd have figured that one out, but sometimes it takes an extra set of eyes and ears...

So Avery should wash her hands when she gets home from school...

Way to go Avery! I am glad that she is loving it, hopefully she will ALWAYS love school, unlike me. Colds, I can't even tell you how many Landen has had, it was like there was a period of 4 straight months or more that snot was leaking from his nose. But that is the price you pay for sending your child to public daycare, but I must say and as wierd as it sounds, it has built his mimune system dramatically! I also give him OPC3 and some other immune system builders to fight that nasty crap off. Maybe let her sit in the bathroom while it's all hot and steamy in there so it clears her out... just a suggestion!

YEAH AVERY!!! I love that she loves school - Annie has not taken to drop off quite as well I am afraid - Mom has mentioned HOME SCHOOL quite often in the last 3 weeks- DRAMA QUEENS - And yes Avery is probably bringing home da funk - but it's great for Livvie's system - she will not be sick EVER soon!!!!

and I think Mrs. P will ADORE the flower!!!

Sounds like she's having so much fun at school! I agree- it would be heartbreaking to have your child not like school.
Hope all the colds are gone soon from your house!

We do the same thing when the kids get sick, we try to track down the source. It's almost a guarantee when we go to McDonald's Playland, or Chuck E Cheese, they are going to be sick within 2 days.

Glad to hear Avery likes school. I was one of those kids who hated school, I can't believe what I put my parents through. My dad use to pick me up kicking and screaming every morning, and take me to school. My mom didn't have the heart to do it, so she made my dad be the bad guy.
I actually ran away from Kindergarden once when the teacher wasn't looking. I made it about a mile down the road, when my mom was driving and saw me. True story.

Poor little Livvie, I hate it too when the girl's are sick. Hope she feels better soon!!

Thanks so much for such a great job on the blog. I just LOVE it!!

I'm so glad she loves school. What a great start to a long career:)

We have a bunch of snot going on in our house too!

I'm happy to see things are going well for you and your family. I'll pray for Olivia to get better, I hope she does soon. I'll be home this weekend, maybe I'll see you!

Jenn Lynn said...

Go Avery! That is wonderful! =) I am so glad that she had such a wonderful first week of school. And I'm equally proud of you too, Mom! You did good too. =)

Do you think Olivia may have picked up some of the germs from Avery's school mates? Just an idea...

Sue said...

Gotta love those germs. Kayla had a "regular" virus and a stomach virus already and that's only after 5 days of school. :) Waiting for Alysa to get it. I hope the colds leaves quickly - they're never fun. Glad Avery still loves school - Kayla had a long break, she'll head back tomorrow. :)

$1200!!! Wow that is a steap visit to the South! You need to come in the winter anyways, I think you would better appreciate the jeans and flip flop weather we seem to have year round! Maybe for Annie's Christmas or Birthday in Feb, then you could see a Summerville Shendig up close and many of your bloggie friends would be there!
