Preschool + Little Dragons

Last night, I found Daisy offering some advice to Violet for her first day of preschool. Daisy is her sister's translator at daycare, and she was worried about how Violet would do without her.

Violet was ready to go long before it was time to leave this morning. She carried around her lunchbox for an hour. She was all business.

She was a little nervous when we first got there.

But relaxed after meeting her teacher. The day went very well and she even talked in class. When I asked the teacher if she could understand Violet, she said, "Some of the time. Sure." That's good enough for me.

Daisy started Little Dragons this afternoon. It's an intro to a mix of martial arts. The teacher referred to his space as a temple and threatened to kick the kids off the Little Dragon team if they used any of their new moves at the playground or against their siblings. As they stretched, he got in their faces . . . "We are a team! Do we have any problems with each other? NO, WE DO NOT!!!" I would have refused to take part in any such thing as a kid. Daisy LOVED IT.

I am really proud, but Daisy is going to have to work twice as hard if she ever has any hope of catching up with Bindy's daughter, who has been practicing karate for years. I'm thinking we're going to have to set up some kind of match.


  1. I dropped out of karate after one class so good for her! lol

  2. totally understand why you would.
