Today was Linnea’s first day of first grade at school. As it turns out, she is in her favorite classroom with her favorite teacher. Miss Eagle!
When this summer break started, I was concerned. Not sure how that would play out with my husband watching the kids the whole summer without a break for him. I traveled a lot. I had to let go. Let him do his own thing. Let him feed them what he thinks is right. Let him decide how much screen time they would get and how much play time.
It worked very well. Linnea had a super creative summer. The most creative girl I know. I am proud of my husband. He supports her dance. He lets her create.
I am not too concerned about Buddha. The two of them are living in a symbiosis where both partners benefit.
I know that she ate too many popsicles and slept with the dog when she missed me at night. But that is OK.
There might be a bit of a bias towards marine creatures. But that is OK, too.
