Daycare Conversations

M: We have to get ready so we can go to daycare.

Z: No

M: But you like daycare. You will get to play with all of your friends.

Z: Play?

M: Yes you will get to play at daycare.

Z: Eat?

M: Yes, I'm sure they will let you eat at daycare.

Z: Toast?

M: Yes, I'm sure they will let you have toast at daycare.

Z: Go. Eat Toast.... (Pulling my finger leading me out the door....)

***************************

Daycare Lady: Oh Heather, I wanted to let you know that we will be moving Zack up this month.

H: But he's only 20 months. Isn't that the two year old room?

DL: Yeah, but he's bored in the 1 year old room. He's starting to be naughty because he's bored.

H: But isn't he still kind of young?

DL: No, he's pretty smart. It gives him a good challenge and he's been playing in there really well when we let him visit this week. He's ready.

H: But I'm not ready!

DL: I don't think you ever get ready.

Try having your kid have full conversation with you and be starting 2nd grade!!! I don't even have to "dumb down" things anymore!

Go eat toast is a mission I can get behind daily! My first visit, I love your header and about me write up - so funny. That's exactly how I feel most days, except, sadly, I don't actually live on a farm.

Also, I think she's right, I know I'll never be ready.

You never are, but they are... but look at it this way, growing up means soon he won't be in diapers anymore, and that's a huge $$ savings in and headache gone!!!
