C started preschool today. Since she’s only two, it’s more of an “early learning” program, but you get the idea. Drop off went well. The other kids were sitting in a circle when we arrived, engaged in story time. C joined them, tentatively at first, then took her seat and forgot all about me. No tears, no big goodbye, just matter of fact about it. This is what we’re doing now – ok, I can handle that. She’s definitely our kid. Makes me proud that she rolls with the punches so well.

So, this morning is “me” time. I’m on my own until 12:30 pm. At that point, I’ll collect C and bring her home for nap time. We have her enrolled three half days a week right now, but will most likely bump it to three full days once she acclimates. Hopefully I’ll have found some part time work by then, too. Back to the “me” time thing, though… ah, yes. I’m tempted to check things off my to do list, given the opportunity to do so without distraction, but, really? It’s been so long since I’ve enjoyed any length of time in our house alone. Aside from Saturday mornings, which afford me an hour while Ben and C attend Gymboree, I can’t think of the last time I was home alone since C was born. Maybe once when I was sick. So this morning, I’m ignoring the chores that are calling my name and the bills that should be paid, and am sitting on the exercise bike, reading and blogging.

It’s lovely. Just lovely.
