Big E: The Boy Who Cried Poor

On Wednesdays and Fridays, both boys go to preschool.  On Monday, Big E goes alone.

We kept Little E home on Mondays, because he just turned two and I felt like he'd enjoy some alone time with me.

I was wrong.  Every Monday as we load Big E up for school, Little E stands an inch from the car and loses his damn mind.  He wants in.  Like now.

Mr. Yoy and I have discussed sending Little E on Mondays and have even asked the school to let us know how much it would cost to send Little E on Mondays for the remainder of the school year.

Big E picked up on Little E's despair and began lobbying for Little E to go with him on Mondays.

This morning, Big E asked me for the 22nd time why Little E couldn't go to school with him on Mondays.

I was out of answers.  And patience.

LITTLE E DOESN'T GO WITH YOU BECAUSE DADDY AND I HAVE NO MONEY.

It is REALLY expensive to send these kids to preschool.

Big E went off to school with Mr. Yoy.

As Mr. Yoy walked Big E into school this morning, Big E reported to the head of his school that Little E can't come to school on Mondays because his parents have no money.

Awesome.

MUST. KEEP. MOUTH. SHUT.
Please let me repeat every off the cuff comment you make to anyone that will listen.
