"Back to School...

...Back to school, to prove to Dad that I'm not a fool. I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight. Ohhhh, back to school." Thank you Billy Madison for that tid bit.

Big day today in the Wise household! Mr. Parker actually ASKED to go to school! The first day of school he was peeled off of me kicking and screaming and I left feeling like I was going to vomit until the second I picked him up. Now, one month later, he's LOVING it! He knows its a school day when I put his clothes on the same time I change his morning diaper. Today, I put his clothes on and he stood by the door wearing his backpack. PRECIOUS... except it wasn't time to leave yet. I finally got a "going to preschool and wearing my backpack" picture.... just a month and a half late!
Cheese! Ready for school!
Lovin' the backpack! Wildkin by Olive Kids, monogrammed by yours truly
Knock Knock! Ready to leave, mom!
Lately, Parker has been getting excellent daily progress reports. Today, it said "please work at home on not spitting." I was confused as I've never seen Parker spit so I asked him "Parker, did you spit at school today?" Sure enough, he said "Uh Huh" and spit (blew extra wet strawberries in the air). I'm 100% sure that Parker learned this from someone else in the class since the entire class got an email this afternoon about the kids testing the teachers today spitting and he's never done it before. But since he randomly started singing some of his ABCs today and he's officially counting to 5 (1,2,3,5... 4 is unimportant) which he learned in school, I'll take a little spitting!

We're loving school now! Parker enjoys the songs, reading and especially the painting! I enjoy running errands with only Avery (SO MUCH QUICKER!), giving her some special 1 on 1 snuggles, getting some sewing projects done and actually watching real life people on TV instead of animated ones! Note, cleaning wasn't anywhere on that list. All in all, it's been a wonderful experience for both of us and I'm glad we signed him up for school! :)


  1. I'm glad Parker is enjoying school! Derrick is finally adjusting as well! He told me his school was "fun" when I picked him up yesterday! I definitely understand the terrible feelings from your first day!!

  2. Oh, and are you back open on Etsy? I didn't know if you had any Turkey appliques?
