(They did not really want to smile)
When I went to pick them up I heard that Natalie cried for a little bit but not for long and Noah did no crying but was very quiet. I found them in their classroom shaking bean bags vigorously with their teacher. They didn't even notice me! When Natalie finally noticed me she ran over and gave me a big hug. No tears! Noah ran over, hugged me and said "time to go home." We left with 2 projects that they had done-a cut out and colored skunk with cotton glued to it and a paper plate owl mask that they colored. What on earth am I supposed to do with all this stuff that they bring home??? 2 projects in one morning (times 2 kids)-that's a lot of stuff! Plus they don't really seem to care about it! As we were walking home we talked about what they did at school. They told me they had cookies for a snack (not sure if they really did or not), colored with markers, shook beanbags and played outside. I asked if they wanted to go back and Natalie said no and Noah said yes. Noah also told me "Noah miss Mommy." Boy want to talk about wanting to cry again! But at least he's willing to go back. They were quite cuddly when they got home but in fine spirits. I sure hope tomorrow is just as easy to drop them off because I'm doing it by myself. I hope I can hold it together better!
