Nothing says Happy Birthday like a Happy Meal and Cupcakes. Dane's little love tank was completely full today. Showing up at his school with lunch and cupcakes isn't something I will be able to do forever. A time will come when having your mom come to your school and eat lunch with you will be a disgrace and total embarrassment. But, having your mom visit when you are 4 is the COOLEST thing ever. And to top it off having a Happy Meal brought to you just adds to the excitement. Dane made sure to tell everyone that I was his mommy, and I brought cupcakes and a happy meal because it was his birthday. It made my heart happy to see him so excited. His love tank was overflowing when Ms Maria told him he could be the line leader to the cafe. When you are 4, this is a BIG deal. So, Dane was all smiles. The kids are all so cute, but lord have mercy on Ms Maria and Ms Tarra. They have to have some major patience to work with this many 3/4 year olds. Just getting them all to visit the potty, wash their hands, and lined up to walk to the cafe had me feeling a bit anxious.
I asked Dane to smile for the camera, and this is what I got. A bit crazy
I was amazed at how organized the teachers are, and how the kids are in a routine. They don't eat their food until after doing a chant and a blessing/song. They all raised their hands to do a manners chant. It was really cute. The chant talks about keeping their hands only on their food or in their laps, and not touching other kids while they are eating.
Ms Maria was very happy to see that I brought little mini cupcakes instead of full size ones. Parents have to bring store bought cupcakes instead of home made ones. Kroger had 2 options... full size cupcakes with neon icing that was like 10 inches thick or these little mini cupcakes. I decided to go with these lil ones, since the kids would be eating them 5 minutes before nap time. 10 inches of icing is a sugar overload waiting to happen plus the neon colors all over clothes. All the parents should be thanking me! HaHa
Dane stood on a chair while everyone sang Happy Birthday to him. He was so cute, and this really made his day.
I took Dane home early from school.
We had some more fun once we got home. Rumor has it Spider Man paid Dane a visit...
Details on that coming soon
