Preschool changes

Do we change Cat's preschool? That is the question of the day. She likes her school but I have a feeling it has really changed into more of a daycare situation than a preschool. She really loves her teacher and the school, but we have an opportunity to move her to a new school. A school that usually has a waiting list. A school where she will be in class with the same kids she will be going to Kindergarten with in in a couple years. A school that is cheaper than the one she is in now. A school that has been recommended by a mom that both hubby and I trust. But is it worth the change. Is it worth that period of time where Cat and we have to deal with that transition period. She isn't unhappy, but I have a feeling she is getting a little bored. Her behavior has not been the best lately, and that usually corresponds with being bored. Maybe it is because with all the rain she can't get outside, or maybe it is the school. So I asked her if she wanted to go to a new school and she was so excited, "can we go tomorrow mama?" So maybe she wouldn't really be that upset, I just worry too much about changes.

I've calmed down now

Gee, wasn't I just a little bit of a bitch there. Sorry folks, guess I was just excited to get to start a free blog, versus the competition where I had to pay.
Anyway, I have calmed down and am now a happy mama. Sick day for me today. Aly is a sick babe which means Mama is sick as well. I just wish she was at the point where I could stick her on the couch give her a comfy pillow and blanket and stick on Sesame Street for a few hours. Is that wrong for me to wish my child would watch more TV so that I can sit quietly by and drink some coffee?
Question for everyone. Should it bother saxman (my hubby) that I like to knit while we watch a movie? He tells me that I can't concentrate on the movie while I am knitting. I tell him that I am fully capable of enjoying a movie and knitting at the same time, I can multitask. Many times it makes the movie better if I am not fully paying attention. It is not like I have my sewing machine in my lap making some new pillows or something. I am just quietly knitting. The only thing he hears is the sound of the bamboo needles hitting each other, now what is more zen than that?
Last thing for the morning. Got a cut, super cute, much more sassy, and I love it, so rush to Halo Salon in Portland (their website sucks) on Sandy. Great salon, not snotty at all, and then you can all be cute too.

All for me

Yes, this is all for me. Not for my kids, not for my husband or my work or my dog or my friends. This is for me, the queen of Mamaland, the land where I can feel exhausted and euphoric at the same time. So if you want to read then do, but just remember this is me, me, me. Not yours, all mine.
