Daddy was reading Caillou Day Care to my two year old son. When he was finished reading, my son turned to daddy and said, “Rawdirt go to day care.” Daddy said, “You better go tell mommy if you want to go to daycare.” On his way to tell me, he was distracted by life but daddy was sure to follow up a few minutes later to remind him what he was going to ask mommy.
When I heard my son ask me to go to day care, my heart sank; I couldn’t believe he was asking me this. It only took a moment to realize that it was the fun and friends that he saw in the book that he desired, it wasn’t the time away from me. Day care looked enjoyable with snacks, toys, a nap, friends and reuniting with mommy and daddy, sounds like fun to me!
