Happily, Bright Eyes went off to preschool with no hiccups this morning - and apparently had a great day.
He's being quite helpful when he's motivated to be in a task. eg. if he wants a drink, he'll get out the juice and the cup for me.
He seems to have taken a step up in language and understanding today. He was literally 'bright eyed' all afternoon. He was ultra-keen to talk on the phone to his grandma. Lovely!
