Starting 2011 With an Upgrade at Daycare!

Well...I am still slogging my way through tons of pictures and tales from Christmas, my birthday and New Year's....I will post those as soon as I can. It was a busy week (Although Mom and I both fought pretty bad cases of strep throat through most of the holidays, which was rough) and I got to see a lot of people, do a lot of things.

Until then, I figured I should tell you the big news...I was once again promoted to a new room at daycare!

I had grown kind of bored recently with the old room, which led to me acting out a bit more than usual (or so the experts theorize) and it was apparently just the right time, since they had decided to move me over a couple weeks ago. Since we were away for vacation, I moved a little later than they had anticipated, but as soon as I returned, we were off!

We bumped into my friend Skyler while I was walking over to the new room. Mom was carrying me, and I asked her if I could get down and walk with Skyler. She said yes, and I asked Skyler if I could hold her hand on the walk in. She didn't say anything, but didn't pull her hand away, so I took that as a "yes" and I nodded, walking with her into the new room.

There were a lot of new kids (and some old friends I hadn't seen in some time) in addition to some new teachers. It was awesome.

And then Mom tried to leave.

I admit it...I panicked, I started crying and saying "I don't like it!" and asking to leave. Mom told Dad later that it was kind of heartbreaking...I didn't mean to break anyone's heart, but it was just SO overwhelming...

Mom finally left after she peeled me off of her leg, and after about 2 minutes if getting acclimated to my new surroundings, seeing the new toys and books, and getting comfy...I was OK. :-)

I had a pretty good day, and didn't even go back to my old classroom at all. Usually, they slowly get a kid used to the new room by having him or her in there for only a few hours at a time, keeping them in there a little longer each day until we're ready for full-time, but just like my transition to the 1 year old room, I fit right in, and didn't need to go back.

I will miss everyone in my old room...the teachers were great, tons of fun, and really helped me develop into the little boy that I am...the kids were a lot of fun, and I will miss playing with them, sharing with them (sometimes) and hanging out with them...but I know I'll be seeing them all around the daycare at some point.

I am now a member of the "Silverbells"....

You're a Silverbell?! You'll have to sing "Jingle Bells" for them.

I stop by this site everyday to catch any updates. And each time I catch sight of your little smile with your lunch bag in your hand, I laugh outloud again.

I am, indeed! I will make sure I sing to them...I'm sure they won't mind hearing it long after Christmas is over. :-)
I'm glad you like to visit the site repeatedly. It makes it totally worth doing. :-)
