Max got to celebrate his actual birthday at school. We had a lot of mustaches left over from his birthday party, so his classmates got to join in on the fun too!
To celebrate, we brought fruit drink pouches, which Max loves. And we also brought Max’s other favorite, fruit leather.
One of the girls held the mustache under her nose and excitedly exclaimed “Look! I’m a guy!!”
Daddy and Abby got to celebrate also. Kids just love babies. They always want to touch and talk to her. For the most part, she doesn’t mind.
I got to stick around for awhile, and I watched them do some music time. I can’t remember the song they’re doing, but in these pictures they’re acting angry and scared. I loved getting to watch Max participate in class. When I’m working I can’t go in his room, otherwise he thinks it’s time to go, and gets upset when I have to leave. But for his birthday, we just brought him in late, stayed for about an hour and then left. And all was peachy.
I LOVED watching Max while he had trike yard time. Then I really got to see how he interacted with the other kids:
As you can see, here he has rammed another little boy and knocked him right off his rider! Atta boy! haha. They were both all smiles and having a blast.
Some tidbits about school:
Max usually only goes to school once a week (Wednesdays, music days with Ms. Wendy). But with the grandparents all abandoning me, he’s been going every day for the last week, and will continue to go, for another week. He seems to be handling it fine, although is a little more tired and therefore grumpy.
Max’s teachers all love him and they always comment about how well behaved he is. To which I answer “really?” They also say all the other kids love to play with him, and one little girl especially likes him: when they moved Max’s nap spot the other day she said “But I can’t see Max now!”
I always ask Max about his day and what his favorite part was. The other day he answered “I liked playing with the girl in the beauuuutiful dress.” What kind of three-year-old notices how cute a dress is?? haha.
His teachers had the UofA basketball game playing on the radio, and Max started cheering “Go Broncos Go! Go Broncos Go!” Made his daddy proud.
We are both so proud of our Maxie, and can’t believe he is already 3. He is so unbelievably sweet, and smart, and lovable. He told me he loved me, and then about five minutes later, he said “I like you Mommy” and that about killed me. I like you too buddy. I think you’re pretty great.
