First Day of Rainbow Room

Sonja started her last room at full-time daycare last week. She moved to what they call Rainbow Room. It’s for 4- and 5-year-olds and while it’s just daycare they do preschool activities each day. She was very, very excited! And so far it’s great. She’s suddenly interested in working with letters and drawing and counting in Spanish.

Almost 4

Sonja turns 4 tomorrow. I have to prolong it as long as I can because I have to get a freelance project out the door and finish some laundry before turning my focus solely to birthday party. Maybe my priorities are in the wrong place, but if I know in the back of my head that I have to throw a birthday party and then do 6 loads of laundry, no amount of Xanex is going to get me through the weekend.

I asked Sonja what she wanted to to take to school for birthday treats and she said, “S’mores!!!” Obvious choice. First I considered taking the fire pit to her daycare and staging an elaborate s’mores making activity. But then I found this recipe. It was easy and yummy. This picture is from the practice batch I made last weekend. Aren’t they just the CUTEST!? I kind of can’t stand how cute they are.

Don’t worry I’ll have s’more on the 4th birthday in the coming days! GROAN!
