We just found out this week that Anna was accepted as a student in the public preschool under the special education program. This means that she will receive some much needed physical and occupational therapy. She will start attending next month, which is going to be quite a shock for all of us. I had given up hope on the school accepting her into the special education program and assumed that I would have to enroll all three of the girls as peer models, which means that they wouldn't be in a classroom until September.
It does appear that we will not have to jump through too many hoops for Allie and Em to begin as peer models in September. Anna does seem excited and I think this will be good for her.
I do have to admit that I just about lost it when her teacher handed me a laminated name tag to tie to her backpack. Her backpack? She's just a baby. She doesn't have a backpack. It was a bit of an "aaaawwwww, my little baby is growing up" moment, especially thinking about how adorable she is going to look walking around with a little backpack.
Here's my mini-me!
