Turns out this girl is SO HAPPY to spend her Tuesday mornings with her Daddy while Mila and I attend Mommy and Me Preschool! So we're rolling with it!
We're still trying to get the hang of parenting "artificial twins".... Sofia and Mila couldn't be more opposite from one another...so although I try very hard to make sure they're getting the same exact opportunities, sometimes they need two completely different things (often times!). As much as I joke that Sofia was ready for preschool the day she was born, emotionally she's in need of a bit more "quiet" time with her family with no pressure or expectations. She's in a sweet spot right now, and just REALLY starting to trust us completely, so we're going with our gut on this one and deciding that for now she just may not be ready, and there will be more opportunities for her to participate in this class...when she's ready! And really, I think if she could tell us, she'd thank us for our decision! The girls dance on Tuesdays too so it was just a bit too much for Sofia girl! She was recently formally diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder, which is absolutely no surprise to us...and we're trying to find the perfect balance of "enough but not too much" sensory input and it's tricky I tell ya! But we're in this together...figuring it out, the "trial-and-error" way and revising as we go! At the end of the day, as long as they are HAPPY and growing and thriving, we've done our job!
And for Mila...well she's still figuring out this Mommy and Me Preschool thing, but she really gets excited for "cool" with Mama and has even asked about it a few times on non-school days!! She doesn't dig the whole "arts and crafts" thing, but loves the time in the gym, and of course snack time! I can't believe she will be 3 in just TWO WEEKS. It seems impossible to me! She seems like such a big girl to me all of a sudden....a big Mila update coming soon!
