i went to pick luke up from preschool today. he was with the rest of his class watching a video while parents started to pull in and his back was to the door. his teacher, mrs. pat, whom we love, was walking toward me and i immediately thought "oh no. here we go." (don't you love the faith i have in my child?) anyway she said "luke had a wonderful day today. he just did great. we had to go to the big bathroom instead of the one between the classrooms and he just went right in and used it and came right out and when we went to the elevator he didn't cry or even hold my hand. he just said "i can do it. i can do it." so of course i'm all teary by this point. a little history...luke has had some sort of preoccupation/obsession with elevators for at least a year. he wants to know if there is an elevator everywhere we are going. and i have already been talking to him about how he will have to go in the elevator to come see me and ally claire at the hospital. he even pretends that his closet is one sometimes. so i'm not sure if it's now a fascination when it used to be shear terror or what. either way, that was MAJOR today. and the bathroom thing...if you are a new reader...luke has had a major fear of big public restrooms since he was first potty trained 2 years ago. if we are traveling, he's rather use a bush than a potty and that is even in the cold weather. it's the atomic flush thing. however, i knew he was good at church b/c he used the regular adult one with micah a few weeks ago.
anyway, all that to say it was a super day for luke and he deserved for his mama to brag on him. plus i did a major no-no and rewarded him with food. we went to "old mcdonalds", as he calls it, and got fries for his snack.
