KPT–Christmas Program

Today was the last KPT day until the new year.  Their finale was a program with singing.  The boys didn’t do too much singing, but I was happy they didn’t pull their shirt up, sit down, or run away.  Luckily Nanny Sarah came to help wrangle children so I could take pictures and videos for Brett.  Bennett is in the front with the blue sweater and Ethan is behind him.

The kids are cute, but really E and B didn’t do much but stand there.

The girls are in the Yellow Ducks class and the boys in the Red Rabbits.  They have wonderful teachers that care for them.  These ladies are my heroes on Thursdays!  And here is why:

Dearest Alisa, Andrea, AnneMarie, and Amy- December 15, 2011

A letter of appreciation to the extraordinary KPT teachers of my PairSquared clan. I am sure that I could of put together a little holiday mug filled with chocolate kisses, but let’s be honest I don’t get out of the house often. Amazon delivers frequently to my house. And maybe this note will be more memorable than the blur of this mom zipping in and out of the church. Yes, I know that I am one of the first to drop off and one of the last to exit the church, but wouldn’t you be too if you had the opportunity to unload 4 kids for a few hours? I am sure that there are many reasons that you elected to be a KPT teacher (I’m sure one of them is not the pay in poopy diapers) but I am going to continue to believe that it is for me! Curious, what I do when the 4 of them are in your care? Well, I will tell you….I go to a store without anyone staring at me, I eat lunch in the quiet, I can hear the TV (guilty, I do watch Days of Our Lives), I sew without the frequent break to settle a dispute over a toy, I prepare dinner without the girls pulling out all my pyrex from the pantry and utensils from the drawer, I pretend like life is easy even if it is just for that moment. 2:00pm comes fast on these days. I am exhausted after putting on the 8 socks and shoes, 4 jackets, 4 hats, and remember the 2 blankets. I sometimes wonder if all this work is worth it. Well it is. I leave the church more relaxed and like I am on top of the world!

All four of you have been so good to my kids. Learning their differences and what features identifies each child. Sorry I didn’t make it easy on you with the twin thing. I know that you love doing what you do and love the children. I’m don’t always remember everything, like tuition and the day the boys were supposed to wear red (you can probably just count us out for PJ day). It isn’t always perfect, like when you run out of diapers and I cross my fingers at pick up that the only biting the kids did was their sibling. Thursdays is not only a day that I look forward to, but I know that they do as well. And that is what counts.

So for whatever reason you work as a KPT teacher, thanks for doing it for me!

Your PairSquared Mom,

MJ

I really enjoy seeing their artwork and today I got to pick up gifts that they made for me.  4 ornaments with their pictures!  Alisa and Andrea, I know that it is not by mistake that Jocelyn has a purple ornament and Aaliyah’s is pink.

Mj, Thank you for your kind words. I love to see Aliyah and Jocelyn's happy little faces each Thursday at KPT. They are so precious. I think about how busy life is for your family and how blessed you all are. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
