I am really happy that Maddie is back in school. She loves it, and with her being gone I get a nice break with only one kid! I am a bit worried about how Charlotte is going to handle Maddie being gone 3 mornings a week. She loves her sister and gets totally bored when Maddie isn't around. More than likely she will be stuck like glue to me since she doesn't have her big sister distraction! On the plus side, we have been working for the last 2 weeks to get Charlotte to drop her morning nap because it's really inconvenient, but she's just not ready. She has been cranky and exhausted all the time and falls asleep during lunch. So, she's back to taking a hour morning nap which gives me peace and quiet on Maddie's school days. I think that school will be good for all of us, Maddie will have something fun to do and Charlotte will get some one on one Mama and Daddy time. I'm excited to pick Maddie up today and see what she thought of her first day!!

Off to her first day of school!
This is Maddie from her first day of school last year.
I can't believe how much she has grown!
