Rambling and some GREAT news!
Ok, first off, I know I sound really mean about the Israeli woman, but something about her just rubs me the wrong way. It did occur to me that maybe she feels the same way about me and is equally happy to postpone. LOL

Maya didn't even remember about the playdate, so that was something I didn't have to deal with. However, the little girl jabbed my heart when we got home. She walked in to the house and said, "WHOA! It is so clean!" I said, "Why are you so surprised?", to which she said, "Well, usually, it isn't."

Girl needs a good talkin' to...

Got some really GREAT news today. After hearing about the British school not moving this year, I've started to worry about Maya getting in for next year. Today I called the school to get an update on what is happening...at least some idea of when we'll hear. Last week, I was told that letters will start going out this week. But then that was before the announcement that the school isn't moving this year to the new campus. So, I called and the admissions officer knew who I was immediately. She also said that letters will be going out soon but that Maya has been officially accepted!!!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

I'm so relieved. Man, I really hate this whole thing...never thought that I'd be stressing out over private school admissions for her so early in life! I also hate that her two friends from her class who also applied are on the waiting list. They are further down the priority list because they are Korean. I think that the kids are US passport holders, but because one parent is a Korean citizen, that bumps them down. I hope at least one of them gets in.

One more thing...this evening at dinner, Maya lost her second tooth! Now her two bottom front teeth are gone.

Yay! Such a relief to know Maya's schooling is already taken care of. *whew*

And OMG! Who told her she could grow up so fast? Surely it wasn't you!

I certainly didn't give her permission, but she doesn't always listen to me, you know.

I am reminded of how my brothers thought it was sooooo awesome that they could drink something with a straw and have their jaw clenched.

'Look! Look! I can drink my shake without opening up my mouth!!!'

Kids are so cute.

I'm almost a little bit sad about Maya's teeth falling out because it ruins her smile. It's a good lesson for her to look after the new ones though I guess!

Hurrah for her getting into the British School! I assume they are going to teach her how to speak proper?! ;-p

Chris said she has to start calling me "mum". :-p

Her teeth missing may change her smile now, but at least they will grow back in. The tooth in the first space is already peeking through.
