Getting Ranger into School

I went to school today to talk to Mrs C about getting Ranger into school. I know that the second quarter is about to end (the kids are going to be having their exams within the week and the next) and I wanted Ranger to try out being in school. I didn't want to pay exorbitant prices just to have my soon-to-be-3-year old decide that he didn't want to go to school.

Mrs C said that sure, we can have Ranger try out school in the next couple of weeks. With Ranger in tow, we walked into the Nursery classroom with Teacher Sherry inside. She gently drew Ranger forward and talked to him, making him feel at home. Or at least, tried to, hehehe. She brought out puzzles and other toys which Ranger totally enjoyed.

Ranger even used the little bathroom when he couldn't hold his weewee any longer, hehehe. We rush into the miniature bathroom with it's kiddie toilet, kiddie urinal and kiddie sink. We go into the urinal side and Ranger asked what that was. I told him it's where little boys go to make weewee standing up. I explained how he didn't have to put up a toilet seat, that all he had to do was stand in front. :) I wish they had nice Delta faucets installed instead of the el-cheapo fixtures they had on, though. It would have been so much more fun to use and explain to Ranger, hehehe.

After a little bit, I asked him if he wanted to go to school the following day. Instead of saying his usual resounding "No!", he actually said YES! So whooohooohoo!!!! Finally! A yes to going to school! This was a HUGE event, since Ranger kept saying that he did NOT want to go to school, despite bribes, threats and cajoling from us.

So yes, we are going to school tomorrow! Now, I hope I have time to shop for a Thomas backpack and lunchbox for my baby boy!!!
