First Day of Mother's Day Out

Today was Stacey's first day of Jubilee Junction our Mother's Day Out.
This is how he felt about "school" (we know MDO is not really school, but that's what we call it.)
Um, don't forget about me Mom, Wyatt wasn't sure quite what was going on, but he definitely wanted to be a part of it.
To be fair this is technically Wyatt's backpack, but Stacey is "borrowing" it until Wyatt needs it.
Stacey went right in and was not one bit sad to see us go. He said, "You're gonna come right back and get me?" I said yes, you get to stay all day and we'll be back to get you this afternoon." And that was it he was happy as a clam with his play dough.

When I picked him up he had a special snack waiting in the car - cheese-its and M&M's - but trust me as far as he is concerned it was a top notch snack. The first thing he asked me was, "Mommy, can I share this with Wyatt?" What a sweetie!!

We already have our first piece of MDO refrigerator art, a lovely rendition of Stacey himself. I was admiring his handiwork on the ride home and as we were headed through the tunnel under Spring Valley he said, "Hey my pichure is going through this tunnel wiss us!!"

The copycat jumped into place for a photo just like big brother. I think they missed each other today. I wish I could have captured the chocking embrace they gave each other when we picked up Stacey. They ended up on the floor in true UFC fashion but were both smiling ear to ear.

I didn't take as many pictures but our day was so similar. These Smith boys are so so cute. Wyatt is a hoot and Stacey is sweet heart. I love to hear all he talks about. Wish I could bottle them up right now. I know you would agree! Well, not all of it but most of it. Cute boys...great post!
