This pic was taken by Andy as we walked out the door. Me in my gorgeous bright green jacket (perfect for walking on those rainy days! LOL), Matt being Matt. Hanging around, getting distracted and Dan rearing to go. Got his backpack on and just can't wait to get in the car and get to daycare.
When we got there he got straight into playing. They had put out some caterpillar shaped playdough with colourful sticks and he got into making his own amazing caterpillar and then cutting it up. Photos were taken and I found it hard to leave. But off I went on my walk, coming back as promised to Dan.
When I walked in the gate he was totally engrossed in playing with a ramp, some cars and a few other boys. Their teacher suggested it might not be wise to disturb him as he was very good, and hadn't even had a whimper since I left. However, I decided that since I'd promised him I'd come back, he might get distressed if I didn't show up and so said hi. He looked up briefly with a smile on his face and said 'Mum' in acknowledgement, then quickly got back to playing. I decided he was fine a few minutes later and went to leave. Reaching over to give him a quick kiss and say bye, and he reached up with his hand and pushed me away. Yes, you heard me right! He was so content, so happy, so wanting to be there, he didn't want me annoying him. I had to laugh later (my pride and feeling needed, was just a tiny bit hurt right then at my big grown up boy! LOL).
When I went back at the end of the day, he was happy as Larry. He was sitting on the mat with the other kids, reading stories. A wonderful start.
I think the trying times will come in a few more weeks when he realises this is the new routine? Will have to see.
Ok, here are some more pics....
I've recovered from my headaches etc over the weekend. Man that hit me hard. I haven't had a migraine for years. In fact I've only ever had three. Two years ago in the same week. Caused by a lot of stress, red wine and chocolate. Not sure what was going on this time. None of the above featured?
Anyway, can you tell I'm procrastinating? I've got a LO finished, but just not stuck down. Hate that part and always seem to find other things to do then. LOL! Really must go back and stick it all together.
PS: Don't forget to leave a comment below to win some Stampin' Up! goodness. I'll probably draw that tomorrow?
