"Home Crying"

Cousteau has been in Pre-K for about two-and-a-half weeks now.  He’s done pretty well, but last Friday and this Monday he melted down a little bit when I was dropping him off at school.  So on Monday I told him if he was a big boy and didn’t cry when I dropped him off at school, etc., all week, I would get him a present.  He did really well the rest of the week and got the above dinosaur toy after school today.  (We’re going out of town for Labor Day weekend tomorrow so he won’t be in school on Friday.)

Anyway, this morning when we were getting in the car for school and he was saying bye to Thao, he was trying to delay our departure so said he wanted to take a toy to school.  We initially told him no, and he looked like he was about to start crying.  I told him to remember no crying was allowed and he needed to be a big boy if he wanted to get his present later today.  He said “That’s not school crying.  That’s just home crying.”  Fair point, and he got the dinosaur.

Thao and I had to have some passport-style photos made at Walmart today in connection with her green card application.  Cousteau was jealous and got up on the stool to have his photo made when Thao and I were finished.  His is definitely cuter than Thao’s and mine were!

Dinosaur Prayers

When we say our prayers at night before we go to sleep, we always pray for all of the animals in the world to be safe, not be scared, have a warm place to sleep, etc., and Cousteau likes for us to also pray for the same things for all of the dinosaurs.

When I picked him up at school yesterday, he told me that when they said a little prayer at school, he told his teacher that they also needed to pray for the dinosaurs.  I thought that was cute.

He’s doing really well in his second week of Pre-K.  He can be a little difficult to get up and going in the morning, but once he gets to school he enjoys it - and he enjoys coming home and showing mom and dad what activities he did at school that day.  We are very proud of him!
