LIFE UPDATE! So remember a few months ago when I mentioned that I’d be moving to NYC? Yeah, well not happening anymore. Why you say? My husband went to a concert and had an epiphany that he hated NYC and that we ” have deep roots in SF.” Unfortunately, my job has gone through a reorganization with the thought that I was leaving, making my role obsolete. -_-
Luckily, I was able to find a part-time opportunity as a digital marketing manager at Humphry Slocombe (#freeicecream) and Chewse was kind enough to extend a part-time position as a content and social media manager to me. Two part-time jobs = 1 full-time job! Woohoo!
The only issue now is that we are WAYYYY behind on preschool applications for Elara. Like, I’m pretty sure our kid isn’t going to preschool. Turns out about 98% of the preschools near us in SF are full. Which means our only hope is getting in through a waitlist. A friend of mine gave me some advice and told me it’s all about bribing and leaving a good impression with the admin at the preschools. Preschool waitlists are not first-come-first-serve, it’s all about who they think are good parents and who would contribute positively to their school.This started Operation Get Elara in Preschool.
I have an open house coming up this week so I made these carmelitas to drop off at the front desk to sweeten the deal. You attract more bees with honey, right? My plan is to keep dropping off sweets every week to our top 5 preschool choices until they give in! Who knew getting your kid into a preschool was so hard?!
I’m crossing my fingers that this works because I don’t want my daughter to be a dumb dumb. Every article I read makes it sound like if your kid doesn’t go to pre-school at the age of 2 then they will never succeed in life. That’s a lot of pressure! Hopefully, my plan works, I’ll give you guys an update later on! Until then, I plan on binge baking for the next couple of weeks!
