Sleeping in Preschool Parking Lots

My neighbor Wendy was among the "crazies," so at least I had a friend.

I didn't blog last night because I, and about 10 others, pulled up at La Cristianita Preschool yesterday afternoon and parked ourselves in the parking lot where we slept all night in our cars in 35 degree (very cold for California) weather so we could ensure our precious 3 year olds a spot in this preschool for next year at 8am this morning.

7 months pregnant and sleeping in the backseat of my van was not that cool but totally worth not having to stress about waiting lists and trying to get into other schools from here on out.  Of course Todd was out of town, otherwise I would have made him do it like most of the Moms had done.  Chase better go to a good college one day because I'm going to hang this one over his head for a long time.

No pressure Chase. He may be a sensational rock star long before college anyway.

What a dedicated momma. I am worried if I'm going to be able to get Addi into a good preschool since we don't know where we will be moving yet.

Impressive! I hope I never have to sleep in the backseat of our car for preschool admissions.

That is nuts that you had to do that! What a good mom you are!
