PreSchoolers. It's a group of mothers that get together hang out and talk motherhood we also have guest speakers and breakfast. Our children are looked after by a group of women volunteers and they do such a good job. Today they had the children sing a song for us. It was so cute to see our children on stage singing and doing a little dance for us. We each got a flower pot with a few flowers in it in celebration of what we had accomplished this year. My accomplishments included homeschooling my five year old, getting our own place and giving birth to our third son. I look back over the year and it's so interesting to see the changes in every ones lives. The pregnant mommas have given birth, the newborns are now teething, new moms are pregnant, and some moms are graduating out of the preschool stage and we will miss them. Sometimes it makes me sad to think about all the changes and to see the children grow so much. I know one day I too will graduate and I will love to see the men they become but boy will I miss my little children. I will miss the bugs, dirt, lovingly picked flowers with no stems, tears, puppies, their little sayings, and I will miss the fridge art. I will miss everything even the things that make me nuts now. But life goes on and so will I one day it will be my turn to graduate and I will have wonderful stories to tell.

We got up yesterday my husband was at work already I got Aidan and Oen some cereal and decided to go clean up their room. I heard a lot of noise going on in the kitchen so I went out to check on them and their cereal was all over the table and the floor. I told them to clean it up now or they were going back to bed. I went back to their room and began to clean again. I had to tell the boys several times to get back to cleaning it up. I heard some one banging on the outside door so I went back out there to tell them to clean. I was very mad at this point and so I yelled clean this up now you boys know better than to throw food what where you thinking and Aidan says, "Well it wasn't even fun anyways mom so we're so sorry." He said it so matter of factly and like that just explain and took care of everything he went right back to work as I smiled to myself. Where do the children get these things? They say the funniest things and make me smile despite my anger, sadness, or pain.
