It was strange coming home to an empty house - it was very quiet - I think the dogs enjoyed it too - they could actually sleep in peace on the couch without fear of Brookie coming to terrorize them....lol.
The day flew by for me b/c I finally got around to tackling our mounting laundry piles - its never ending. Anyway....when I went to pick her up, I needed to stop by Walmart for a few things that we needed. I was in and out in 10 mins flat - what a concept. It was so peaceful and quiet in there and I could just run in and get what I needed and not have to worry about bringing snacks for Brookie to eat while I walked around. Wow - I think I am going to have to do my grocery shopping during the week - you just can't get any better. The shelves were full, the aisles were empty......very un-walmart like. That was like the cherry on top for me for deciding to stop working full time...lol! I can enjoy Walmart in peace now.
So anyway...when I got to Brooklynn's school, it was still their nap time but as I walk in the door - guess who is just sitting up on her mat looking around?? Yep - thats my girl......no naptime for her. Old habits die hard I guess. She was the same way at her old daycare. It was a miracle if she slept for an hour.....so needless to say - it wasn't a surprise for me. Her teachers said she did just lay there the entire time and was quiet - so at least she wasn't disturbing the rest of the kids who were actually SLEEPING. Maybe one day she will get the hang of it - she's just too worried about missing something if she closes her eyes. Oh well - as long as she continues her awesome sleeping habits at home - I'm okay with that. They said she did really well and they loved all her giggles....so day 1 was a success - lets hope it continues.
Here are a couple of pics I snapped before we left for school this morning...such a big girl!!!
