So after being rather cooped up all winter and then last week due to sickness, we finally were able to go the Evening with the Tots.
Evening with the Tots is a program I wanted to sign you up for during the winter but with sickness floating around and your brother’s immune system still being immature, we had to wait till spring to register you.
I was sad we couldn’t take you last week but was happy we finally got to go last night.
Wow, you were in heaven I think and I am looking forward to going next week. You were so excited just walking into the school. Sorry it took me so long to figure out where we were going.
I think when we finally got to the room though and the teacher opened the door, it was all worth it. You just ran in there and started sharing all the toys with the other little kids while I made us some name tags and talked to the teacher.
You didn’t want to leave that room when it was time to go to the gym. Oh you were kicking and screaming but as soon as we walked into the gym you were so excited I thought you were going to burst. You were just running around checking EVERYTHING out. You wanted to help all the kids out who were in the little cars and stuff.
You tried playing with the kids and you wanted to push them around in the cars. One time you actually went around the mother and pushed her hands off the car and started pushing the car. The mom was o.k. with it but I was a little worried by your bold move.
You played with balls and tried to play catch very briefly with a few kids.
You gave this little boy, Miles, a kiss a cheek and then hugged a few others. You really wanted to touch this little girl, Greta’s hair bow but I stopped you. I think poor Greta was just overwhelmed by the whole night as she was the only girl and then you being so curious scared her a little.
All the parents seemed to love you and your expressions. They were all surprised and your lack of shyness. So I had fun telling them stories about you and how you are sometimes to friendly, yes we will be having the stranger talk when you get older that is for sure.
The teacher loved how helpful you were.
After gym time it was time for a snack so needless to say it was a little rough getting you back into the other room. You didn’t seem to want to leave all the fun toys in the gym but again when you say the other room and all the toys all was right in the world again.
It took some coaxing but I got you to the back table for snack time. You helped cleaning up by eating all the remaining cheerios on the table. The teacher thought that was the best.
Then it was back to playing until we had to leave early to help Daddy with Sam.
I am looking forward to next week and all of us going.
