next installment of the daycare diaries...

that last post was just too long. i had to break it up. this is better than a soap opera, right?

so olivia went back to my beloved work daycare for two weeks and got lots of love and cuddles from her teachers and old friends. i had this monday off from work so we went to the new school for a visit and she was in heaven.

she played on the floor with all sorts of fabric and crinkle toys and made new friends. her cubbie was all set up with her name and a picture. her spot in the fridge was labeled, her area in the diaper changing station was labeled, her crib was labeled AND EMPTY, there was a huge butterfly on the wall with her name and birthday. AHHHH! i got her crib all ready with sheet and blankie, stocked her up on diaps and wipes, brought some extra clothes for her cubbie. VERY nice.

her first day was tuesday and it went beautifully! they even took pictures of her to show me how well she's playinig with her new friends and this was on her take home sheet:

"Oliva had a wonderful first day. She was all smiles and loves music as she would bounce to the beat. She enjoyed playing on the mat with her new friends and toys. Thank you so much for bringing your beautiful daughter to our school. Have a great night!"

her theme for april is art and artists. this week they learn about renoir, degas and seurat. they listened to stories about museums, painted with paintbrushes, crayons and their piggies, listened to music, felt different fabrics and are practicing holding their bottles for their weekly "self help/life skill" HEE!

I'm so glad you got her in! I know the relief of finding a place where you finally feel good about leaving your child and it is just about the best feeling in the world. Sounds wonderful!!!
