New Beginnings

Adventures in Day Care

Well, I just made it through the first week at my new day care. Change is always a little scary at first but, if you give it a chance, sometimes things will work out okay. The first big change is that me and Mommy have to ride the bus to day care now. I always liked bus rides so, that was fun. We have to catch two buses to day care and in this pic, we are heading for the corner of the block where we live to catch the first bus.

Grammy left with us on this day and brought the camera so she could take some pics. When we got to the corner, we had to wait a little while for the bus to come so, I sat down while Mommy watched for the bus. The big shadow that you see on the ground is Grammy taking my pic!

After a while, we got off the first bus and in these pics, me and Mommy are waiting for the second bus. This time, there was a place to sit but, I decided to stand up and wait for the bus with Mommy.

When the second bus came, me and Mommy got on it but, Grammy stayed behind because she had to catch a different bus that would take her to work. She had to take this pic really fast but as you know, Grammy has a really quick "trigger finger" with a camera!

After we sat down, Grammy came up close to the window where we were sitting and took this really neat pic of me waving goodbye through the glass. If you look really hard, you can see the outline of me and Mommy in the glass!

At the end of the day, Mommy and Grammy came to pick me up but, Grammy got there first so she could take even more pics. This day care is larger and has more space so, there is plenty of room to play. In these pics, all of the other kids are in another room watching TV so, I had this space all to myself. Grammy also took a pic of the other kids watching TV but, she said it came out too "blurry" (whatever that is) so, she couldn't post it.

There are more kids at this day care and that felt different. Many of them are around my age so, I am looking forward to making a lot of new friends. There are also some older kids that come later in the day when they get out of school. Grammy said that they are there for something called "after care" and she took this pic of them outside in the play area behind the day care.

Grammy told me that Mommy was on her way to come and get me so, I kept watching the door while I played with some toys. Mommy finally got there and in this pic, she is packing up all of my stuff so we can head for home. There's a playground up the street from the day care and we have to pass by it when walk to the bus stop. One afternoon, me and Mommy stopped there for a little while and I got a few slides on the sliding board before we got on the bus.

When Mommy dropped me off at day care this week, I got sad and cried when she left to go to work and at other times during the day. There were so many new faces around me that I didn't know and I guess I just wanted to cling to the one face that I did know. Ms. Rose, Ms. Edie, Ms. Khalisa, and Ms. Linda are all very nice to me and the kids are really friendly too so, as the week went on, I played with them more and with each passing day, I cried a little less than I did the day before.

A lot has changed but, I think I'm going to like this day care. Every Tuesday is "arts and crafts", which I liked a lot at my old day care. Every Wednesday is something called "show and tell" so, I can bring one of my favorite toys to play with on that day. This week, I took my Thomas train. Every Thursday is "art day" and every Friday, we have something called a "picnic lunch". I get to carry my new Cars backpack and Thomas & Friends lunch bag everyday, just like the big kids going to school. I also have to take my Winnie-the-Pooh sleeping bag every Monday for naptime during the week and every Friday, I have to take it home so Mommy can wash it.

My Grammy won't be picking me up everyday anymore but, she promised to come and get me if Mommy can't do it. She also said that she would take me out for rides in my red car sometimes on Saturday afternoons. And, I guess my Pop-Pop won't be able to just show up and surprise me anymore either but, that's okay. I really like the bus rides with Mommy in the morning and afternoon so, I'm happy that we can do that together.

wow cousin, I am glad to hear you like your new school. Im not sure what to make of my new school! We both wanted to cling to the ones we know and love best. I realized that I am an activist,I tried to set the class turtle "Roger" free!
Hey Cuz,

If you got a chance to set a turtle free, that sounds like a lot of fun...I wish I could've been there to see it!
Wow, Elijah!

You are growing up fast. Thank you for sharing your first week at your new daycare. I enjoyed reading this post. May you have a great week this week and make some new friends. We love you always.
