Today was picture day at her preschool. And apparently she cried and cried because she didn’t want to have her picture made. So she didn’t. Literally refused to even sit there. They even sent a note home saying they would refund my money.
Had they not said anything, I never would have known she was upset, because when she got home she hopped out of the car and begged me to take her picture.
Last week after we visited the pumpkin patch, she came home and drew a happy face, a sad face, and a scary face all around her pumpkin. And then she named each face, with names she obviously thought of herself: Alysia, Crouton, and Ganana.
At the time, I wondered why she spent so much time on all the faces (and also was slightly amused by her choice of names).
Now I think she was just looking for someone to identify with. And she really should have named all of them Kate.
