For the first time that I can remember, I allowed her to apply her own maple syrup. She poured a completely reasonable amount on, with no sticky mess, but then insisted on licking the pitcher to get the drips off! Yum.

Yesterday was Matilda's first day going to preschool in the morning. She is excited to have a few more days of school a week; I am using it as a chance to practice getting out the door in a timely manner before kindergarten slaps me in the face next fall with some early start time. As I picked her up at noon, Porter had just fallen asleep hard in the stroller. I had the idea to take her out for a little celebratory lunch. It was such a nice special moment with her while Porter slept beside our table. We colored and chatted about the morning and she happily ordered pancakes and bacon for lunch!I ordered a nice, healthy avocado-tomato sandwich, which I sullied with bacon when I saw how huge Matilda's side order was. Surely a 4 year old couldn't eat all that bacon alone.
