My babies and their mommies
are learning how to deal with change.
This is my first day during a weekday
that I have been home
all day in about 8 months.
I must confes, I miss my baby girl.
She gives the best hugs.
She's a very affectionate child.
That's what I miss most.
I truly don't get many of those here.
Her mom called me crying yesterday.
She was stuck in traffic for almost an hour.
She had to pay $25 extra,
her babysitters policy.
Did I mention that I hate this traffic.
It's one of the main reasons, I couldn't continue.
I was leaving at 6:30 am and not getting home
until 7:00 pm some days.
Pray for our middle grandchild.
She started a program for 2 year olds.
The teacher is older and should retire.
I'm sorry, but what 2 year old can sit still???
A two-year old program
should be about learning to get along with other children,
coloring inside the lines, and recess.
Do you agree?
Now, don't get me wrong,
she is full of personality and strong-willed,
but she's gonna be fine.
This one was strong-willed, too.
But he's grown into such a sweet, tender, gentle soul.
They go to the same school.
and he cries when she gets into trouble.
Chad had a teacher who said he was "Bad."
He started crying one day and cried for a week
and begged not to go back.
I asked him what was wrong.
He said, "I'm bad. My teacher says I am bad."
I explained to him that wrong behavior was not acceptable
but that he was not "bad."
That did it!
I marched my "bad" self up there
and proceeded to let the powers-that-be know
that I didn't like labels and that I would not accept it.
She retired a few years later.
