All loaded in the car. Strapped in and ready to go. I could sense that NHV was processing the next hour - time we would spend together at her new preschool getting familiar with her teachers, classmates and surroundings. I didn't push or ask questions. I just turned on her favorite princess music and drove.
A few minutes into our trip, she opened up, and we had this conversation ...
"Mommy, we're going to school ... just you and me! It's going to be so fun!"
"I know! It is going to be so much fun!"
"There's a toilet at my school. So if you need to go, there's a toilet."
"Good to know. And if you have to go, you can use the toilet at school, too."
"Mommy, don't yell at me or be naughty to me at school. My teachers won't like that."
"Okay, I won't yell. Wait, do I yell a lot?"
"No, mommy, but I will be on good behavior ... like a smiley face!"
"I'm glad to hear that. I am sure your teacher will like that, too."
"Yeah, and I'm going to look at my teacher in her face!"
