|No idea why she picked Minnie as her stuffed animal of choice---she never plays with her lol. Maybe she didn't want to risk taking her treasured stuffed animals for fear they'd be damaged :-P|
|Brielle wanted to do pj day too! ...no really, she kept telling me "me too party!" haha|
And then the big parenting FAIL. Somewhere between the kitchen and the van Raya managed to set Minnie down. I didn't think anything of it because I was too busy loading Harper, Brielle, and Raya into the car, remembering Raya's cereal snack and making sure she was carrying her slippers, etc.
Anyways, we get to preschool and we realize we forgot Minnie. Cue MELTDOWN. Oops. Other kids hadn't brought a stuffed animal too and I tried pointing that out. I also pointed out that only a couple kids had slippers and hers were the only light up ones. The teacher offered to let her use one of the extra stuffed animals she had brought and some other kids offered their stuffed animals. I even offered upu the dolls that Brielle and Harper had brought from home.
Nope. Poor Raya was just heartbroken about Minnie. It wasn't a naughty tantrum, just more of a heartbroken sob haha. Finally I just said, "well, we can go home and skip preschool today if you are too upset to stay" ....and she didn't want to do that! So she stopped. Hopefully she does fine the rest of the morning there. Mama can only remember so many things and *she* was in charge of holding that Minnie!
'Tis the life :-P
