After I took JSL to the doctor we went to the daycare center for NHL’s parent teacher conference. This was the first one that I have gone to. When we got there the daycare director said that afterward she wanted to introduce us to JSL’s teachers for the fall when he starts going there. I was relieved to hear that JSL will not be in the same infant room that NHL was in. It’s not that it was a bad experience, the head teacher just isn’t warm and fuzzy.
So, JL and I talked with NHL’s teacher about how things are going. She said he’s testing things a little more, but she doesn’t think it is necessarily his baby brother and is likely just the age (almost 4). She was really great. It’s amazing how she really knows NHL after being in the room such a short time. I think her evaluation was the most accurate one that we’ve had – EVER. We also told her that were not 100% sure about the summer and plans. NHL is going to a new school for the fall and we’re debating what to do for the summer. He’ll be bored home with me every day. So we did ask about possibly sending part time for July and August. The daycare director said it’s a possibility and would get back to us.
After our meeting we happened to meet NHL in the hall since he was in the gym having PT. We promised to meet him in his classroom to show off his baby brother to his friends. So we were finally able to part from him and went to see the new baby room. We met two of the teachers. Interesting to note the afternoon teacher in that room is the woman that left NHL’s current room to retire. I guess it wasn’t really for her and she just needed out of that age group. The nice thing about this new room is the head teacher is a nurse. That calms me down a lot and we saw her as we were leaving. She told us to visit often this summer and chat anytime. I was very happy since the guilt about going back to work in September has already started.
After that we went to see NHL and then took JSL to see JL’s co-workers.
On that note I am off to deal with nose milk coming from JSL again. UGH!
