Yesterday I had the chance to volunteer at my daughters' preschool. I try to do this once a month. Lately, though, it seems my volunteer day ends up being on the day of a party (Thanksgiving and Christmas), but not this time. There were no parties lined up and I finally got a good idea of what goes on at preschool. Interestingly enough, the same things they do at preschool, my girls claim they simply cannot do for themselves at home.
Put their coats on? At school they'll at least attempt it. The coats sometimes ended up being put on upside down, but they tried. At home they give me the line of "I can't do it." At school they clean up their mess. Yes, it took a reminder, but they did it without argument. At home I am often told "I'm too tired to clean up" or "My arms are too tired."
All joking aside, yesterday's volunteer stint was fun. I had a chance to see that my daughters enjoy preschool and are actively involved in the classroom lessons. Now if I can just remember to sing the Clean Up song at the end of the day, maybe they'll clean up at home, too.
