day of pre-school.
Even R is starting to call L "Mama" pretty regularly and that melts my heart too. They love her, and they are starting to realize that she's really sticking around. For preschool, R was asked to draw a picture of her family and she managed it pretty well. There are 5 different colored stick figures and her teacher labeled them all according to who R told her they were. There was Brother, Mommy, Mama, Mimi(my mom) and RyRy. Our current living situation may not be "normal" but at least the kids know they are loved.
Speaking of our living situation, I now know we aren't the only two mom family at the kids' school! I saw another one yesterday when picking R up from pre-school, they were there to get their son from the 4 year old class. It may not seem like a lot to some people, but knowing we aren't the only family like ours at the school is really reassuring. Looks like we aren't as alone as I've been feeling after all.
