Just like that, Aspen King Edmonds is 2 years old! And now that she's a full-fledged toddler, Meghan King Edmonds' little girl is ready to embark on some new life chapters. In a December 12 Instagram post, the proud Real Housewives of Orange County alum shared: "Our little baby started preschool this week!" And in a post on her blog, Meghan explained how she knew it was time for Aspen to hit the classroom.
"When the twins were born life got a whole lot crazier," the mom of three wrote. "Aspen always loves going to the park, going to her gymnastics class, and playing with other kids but I wasn’t able to do these things with her as often because of the demanding needs of two infants. By the time I realized that preschool might be a good idea we were already well into fall and way past the beginning of the school year."
Luckily, after doing a bit of research, Meghan and her husband, Jim Edmonds, found a few local preschools they were interested in, and later honed in on one place that seemed like a good match for their little one.
"We made our decision based on the intimate feeling of the school and loved that it’s focused on playtime," Meghan wrote. "(We figure she will have plenty of years to have a more structured academic environment.)" So, how did Aspen take to her new school?
"When I picked her up [after her first day] she was excited to see me and gave me a huge hug then ran back toward her classroom to 'help' a little girl with her backpack and pick up her brand new Christmas tree artwork she created. They said she fit right in. I knew it was time for her to start! We may have started school in December but it worked out perfectly for Aspen," Meghan shared.
