mod*tot's about to have a 2-week summer break from nursery school, then she'll start summer school 2 afternoons a week. she has made her 1st best friend + she adores her, so i don't want to tell her that her best friend is going to be attending summer school on different days. poor mod*tot, she'll be crushed not to see her friend at school, but we'll make playdates + she'll be back in the same class in august. mod*tot is growing fast!
