Mar 31st 2008 2:56PM I do remember the 1st day I dropped him off, he was only 7 weeks old, and I bawled all the way to work, at work and all the way to pick him up. I was told it would get easier as he got older (I'm a daycare user all the time), and I wish I could find who told me that and tell them they lied. He's just now 3 and while some aspects have become not so bad, I still cry 3 days out of the week normally. And Monday's are the hardest days for me. I do worry still if he misses me, but the times I've gone to get him early, he's to busy playing or doing the activites with them to even notice me. His friends are like... You're mama's here, and then he sees me. But to let you in on why pick up is so awesome... it's that smile they give you when they see you it melts away bad days from work and just bad days from being female ;). From 10ms old on it's been my favorite part of the day, now he glows when I pick him up and shows me the art work they've done! I'm not able to stay home, but if I could I would, and I'm sure he'd give me the smile at home too, but I do look forward to them on the car ride there :).
Mar 25th 2008 9:25AM The lovely Butt Pat, Oh how I miss it. When he'd be sleeping iwth me after daddy left for work, it was my snooze alarm. One feeding and right back to sleep with pats, and then next waking was the start of the day! Now we're 3 years old and how I wish I could pat that butt and make him sleep again....maybe just during nap time. But yes, I loved the butt pat!
Mar 20th 2008 4:33PM Here Here!!! That is SO ture!
I remember when my DS was born, around the time of the last baby crazy in Hollywood, and I would look at Shilo and them and the others at that time and go... why can I not look like that? HOw come I cannot be skinny and well rested.
Mar 10th 2008 3:46PM "No, really I speak train that's what he said"... I don't even remember why that one came up, but it made us giggle that night when we thought back.
"No, please do not pick your butt and taste it". I don't really understand why but this is a repeat for me.
Mar 5th 2008 4:26PM I found that's one thing about day care that was a blessing (among a few others) he was starting at 2 b/c the other kids of the class he just joined were doing it and he would wanna be like "'Ia and Waren" his friends he was 6 months behind since he started there.
We didn't do much at 1st, but one day, I brough along a book and WHAM BAM that was how we started to use the potty for EVERYTHING. Though Sitting down to pee was not his thing, he's since learned how to stand and do it. He thinks its fun to "Aim" so maybe try some Cheerio's for the "Fun" of it (might have to have Unkey show him how?!??).
We only have an accident every now and then and it's mostly we're to deep in play we're not paying attention and we'll be 3 later this month.
Books + Toilet = Poopie for us.
Cheerios + Standing = Fun and pee!!
But again, it happens when he's ready.
Feb 22nd 2008 12:59PM Don't forget that moving up will bring the "Circle of Daycare" as I've come to know it. He's the smallest and will, at times, be a "chew toy or Punching bag" for the oldest/biggest. You'll have Notes that "Your cchild was hit today by another child...ect" Over and over and some days you'll have two or 3 (or more) in a day. It will freak you out and it will upset you, but come the day when he's in the "big boy group" your notes will change and you will get the "Your child bit another child... Hit another child...Pushed another child"... and then he'll enter a new room and it starts ALL over again. AHhh the Circle of daycare...
Congrads on the big boy room! I know he's having a blast!!!
Oct 26th 2007 2:46PM Does this work for husbands that get lost in the set and can show them how much time their wasting? Kids you can just switch it off, but hubbies, not so easy ;-). hehehe.
Oct 25th 2007 8:38AM You forget the constant bombardments of "Punt the gnome" jokes we get. Even your own guild members will rag you about that some times. And as #1 said, yes I tell people to tell it to my hat or I’ll bite their knees. It’s a lot of fun and a great stress reliever for a group to pick on a gnome for some reason.
But I love playing my gnome and my Alt is a dwarf (guess I like the short toons). I’m proudly a 65 Gnome mage and the hardest thing I’ve found (once you get use to the camera angle) is running a group of tall ones. All you see are the rumps of your group mates and their pets if you’re a caster like me. You’ve not lived till you’ve looked at the rump of a turtle (and there are worse ones too) for a whole run of Uldaman. But I love my gnome ….even if I am a foot ball for some.
