Back to daycare

Thursday, October 19th, 2006

We took Reid back to daycare on Wednesday morning. She climbed quickly out of her seat, gave Daddy an enthusiastic kiss and hurried across the parking lot, saying “Running” with a big smile on her face. I’m so glad that she is so adaptable and so glad that she enjoys daycare.

I’m pleased as well that the daycare people seem to have taught her to line her boots up with the toes pointing to the wall and then lean on the wall to balance as she put them on. Uncle Roger and Grandma Joyce noticed this habit when they were here. I hadn’t but once it was pointed out, I had to admit that the clever tactic wasn’t mine. If I had 15 toddlers to get outside at the same time, I may have thought of it but fortunately I don’t. It’s a good strategy to share with anyone who will need to help a small person into boots for the next 5 or 6 months like I will.
