Alden gets upset in the mornings that he has to go to preschool. He whines about it during breakfast.  It's really strange because when we look at the photographs of his class in action he looks like he is having fun. His teachers also say he does great.

Alden likes to retreat to "nap" when he wants comfort. He's done this when he's been left with people besides Mom and Dad. He even has a "nap" routine when he gets to school in the morning. We walk into the classroom. Mom sets down my bucket and I watch on. Mom gets out the blue beanbag. Then they pick out a book. Next Alden lays down on the beanbag and Mom tucks him in with a blanket from the classroom dolls and the book. After a few smooches we then take off. The report is Alden stays "napping" for a bit after we leave and gets up when he is ready. When he is ready he joins the class and has a grand old time.

This is quite ironic given Alden skips a nap most days! He still has to do quiet time though. Me, I take my naps.

Alden also likes to play with his hair and Mom's hair, but he's outgrowing play with Mom's hair a bit.

Napping at school.

Forgot to share this one before - Alden and his friends doing their New Year's toast.

Carrots are great for the complexion.
