First Day of told by Addison

 Hello everyone. Addison here.
You may or may not be aware of the fact that I am a big girl now because I turned THREE yesterday. It was a pretty awesome day, but since Daddy was out of town we have declared my birthday to last the entire week. Just so you know.
I got some exciting presents. 
(I will accept the fake dog for now. Let's consider it practice for the real thing)
I read a story to my cousin who lives far away.
Played with this guy.
 Had lots of chocolate, visited with Papa and good friends, watched a lot of Signing Time, woke up at 4am, decided to skip nap time, cried when I wanted to, and stole the rest of Carter's cupcake. (It is my birthday after all.)

And then this morning I was an angel and absolutely DID NOT spread the contents of a dirty diaper across my room and DID NOT play in my dumped bowl of cereal. I have no idea why you would even ask that. (By the way mommy, making me take that extra bath was just rude.)
 After my bath mommy dressed me all up, letting me wear my new boots after I specifically requested them. (it took her a while to gather up my orthotics because apparently it took her a long time to figure out where Carter Henry hid one of them yesterday. Hilarious.)
And then she asked me to hold this strange picture of a sick baby. Of course I didn't want to, so she taped it to my sweater. WHAT? She said something about it being one of my very first pictures while I was in the NICU and wanting to compare how far I've come. Awesome to awesomer? Mommy does the strangest things sometimes.
 Unceremoniously Carter and I were then hustled to the car, strapped into carseats, and driven a few minutes to some mysterious location. Mommy kept saying the word "school" over and over again. Whatever. I did like the song on the radio, so I spent the time dancing. 

It was cold outside, so I'm kind of glad I didn't have to walk the long distance from the car. I did wish Mommy had pulled our ride faster though. Sister's cheeks got COLD. It's appalling how bad the service is around here.
 When Mommy let me out of the wagon, I recognized the hallway. I knew right where to go because HEY! I've been here before!
 Mommy followed me in and kept trying to take pictures of me.
 Annoying. I'm sorry, but is YOUR name on a laminated apple up on the wall? No? So why are you still here?
 Since no one loves me enough to teach me the sign for "YOU ARE DEAD TO ME", I improvised with this facial expression: 
This seemed to work nicely as mommy then left me ALL ALONE to play with my new friends. Life is good.

We are home now. My first morning at preschool is over. My teacher told my mommy I did really well, and I have to admit I was kind of happy to see her and Carter waiting outside the door for me when my morning was done.

And NO I absolutely was NOT sleeping in the car ride home. I just wanted to rest my eyes for a few minutes as I had such an exciting morning I didn't even have time to BLINK. Geez, what's with all the questions?

So yeah. First morning of preschool. NAILED IT.

You know how I think we should celebrate? Yup, chocolate. HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT?

Love, Addison
