    Natalie’s goodbye routine

    Natalie has a pretty funny lil routine when it comes to parting ways at her preschool.  I wanted to jot this down before I forget. First, a hug. Then, a kiss. Next, a handshake. After that, she enters the classroom while I start to leave. Then she runs out and stands at the gate reaching out and says “oh, and don’t forget to drop me off at home and tell me if the school is closed!” It doesn’t make much sense but it’s her way of saying goodbye at the start of the day.
