Sydney started kindergarten today

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

Today was Sydney’s first day of kindergarten. We saw her off this morning on the school bus. The bus was a bit late. I bet that we were towards the end of the route. And I bet that it was late because every other parent did like us; take a picture of our child as she got on the bus.

She “ate” her lunch today…well, just the peanut butter sandwich. She didn’t eat the carrots or cheese. Though that was pretty good for her, considering that she had never eaten a peanut butter sandwich until a little over a month ago. (She likes peanut butter, but in a bowl and eating it with a spoon.)

Today was an early dismissal. Tomorrow is the first full day. We will see how that goes.

Sydney Got Her Ears Pierced

Thursday, December 13th, 2007

Sydney’s Pierced EarSydney got her ears pierced Wednesday of last week, 12/5/2007. Nancy had taken her to the mall after she was done with gymnastics. They were walking past claire’s boutique. Sydney has been into putting lots of hair accessories in her hair lately; pony tails, pig tails, clips, headbands, etc. While they were looking around, Sydney asked to get her ears pierced.

She did very well. She was very excited. Nancy had both the video camera and still camera handy, so she was able to capture the moment. I was there too, along with Adelaide. The two employees at the store worked together to pierce Syd’s ears. In this way, they pierced both ears at the same time. Sydney, who needed two nurses and Nancy to hold her down to get a shot, didn’t cry at all when her ears were pierced. I guess it all depends on if you want it (earrings) or not (shot). 🙂

Sydney picked out pink flower earrings. (I think that she picked them because they were pink.) She is excited that she will be able to pick out earrings from Walt Disney World, as we will be going there soon. Once we get back, she will be able to take her starter earrings out and put in whatever she wants. She wants Mickey and Princess earrings.

Halloween 2007 wrap-up

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

Halloween candy - smallHalloween 2007 is wrapping up. I think that Sydney and Adelaide had a good Halloween. This evening, around 6:30pm, Sydney the fairy princess and Adelaide the monster set off down our sidewalk with treat bags in hand. Sydney, being 4, was very excited. Adelaide, being 20 months, just wanted to chase after her older sister.

(Nancy was decked out in goth attire. She looked like Abby on NCIS. She was very cute.)

Houses that had dogs were a big hit with Syd and Ad. They stopped to talk with and pet the puppies.

About half way around the block, Ad figured out the system. I would pick her up the front steps. (She still isn’t too good climbing steps.) She would then totter up to the door and step right up to the candy bowl and pick a piece of candy. (She was partial to suckers when she could find them.) She would them put the candy into her bag. She did very well.

Overall, this was a very cute year for trick or treating, as both girls really liked it. 🙂

Sydney’s First Overnight Slumber Party

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

Sydney had her first overnight slumber party last night. She stayed overnight with two other four year olds. She did very well. They had a good time making tie dyed t-shirts and going to see the movie “The Game Plan“. (She liked the bull dog.) I definitely give kudos to the parents where she stayed. They had a gaggle of girls sleep over. (They have three girls, and it was the oldest girl’s birthday. She had some friends over for her birthday, but the middle and youngest girl both invited a couple friends to stay overnight too! I think that this is foreshadowing of my future. But I only have two girls. Whew!) The “sleep over” door is open. Sydney is growing up so fast.

[Updated 10/01/07]: I forgot to post this. When talking to the mom in charge of the sleep over when I picked Sydney up, she relayed this funny little story. I guess she got a full dose of Syd. That night, the mom was in with the three four year olds, getting ready to sleep. Sydney was in a giggling mood and kept giggling. The mom said to the effect of “Okay, girls. It’s time to go to sleep and stop the giggling.” Sydney said, without missing a beat, “But giggling is what little girls do.” This is classic Syd.
