School Days...

I am very grateful that all of Henry's teachers at his daycare indulge me by letting me pop in on Henry to say hi at any time of the day. I mean the fact that I happen to work at the Church means I'm right there, but I'd understand it if they preferred to not have me distracting him at any time. Not to mention I keep the teachers on their toes because they never know when I'm coming. :)

There are days where I say hi for a couple of minutes and Henry wants me to stay longer and I hear him screaming after I leave. And forget about popping in late in the afternoon. Henry assumes I'm there to pick him up. After all, other kids have started to be picked up, why not him too? So if he sees me in the afternoon and I don't take him home, we are definitely looking at a probable melt down type situation.

Other than getting to see him throughout the day the best part of Henry being in daycare right where I work is getting to take his picture everyday and send it to Carol. And if I don't send a picture by 4 pm boy does she notice. I start getting texts, "where is my Henry picture?" at 4 sharp or sometimes 3:30 depending on how her day is going.

Here are some of the best pictures taken from his nursery days this month. Followed by some of Henry's other adventures.

We didn't put Cheetos in Henry's lunch. But one of his classmates had them and Henry always find a way to score some of his friends snacks. Today I caught him drinking out of his classmate's sippy cup. The kid is incorrigible.

I love the face Henry is making in that second picture. I think he looks like Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes. Henry is already carrying a stuff dog we call Ralph around everywhere. Well, if he gets to be as difficult as Calvin, I hope he's also as smart too. That would be a good trade off in my opinion. You never got to see 20 years later in that strip when Calvin buys his parents a new house with some of the money Calvin made from starting his own dotcom while he was still in college.

Looks like he's already inherited my ability to sleep through anything. Here he is at the tail end of nap time. the lights are on and the other kids are running around and he's still out cold. Of course this is after he woke up in the middle of nap time and wanted a snack.

Is it too early to say that Henry might be ambidextrous? This was him playing with some crayons at a restaurant. Carol and I were pleasantly surprised to find that Henry behaves well at restaurants. Or at least he has the couple of times we've taken him to one. It nice to know we can go out and not have to deal with a screaming kid and dirty looks from the other restaurant patrons.

More proof he's ambidextrous, he's got a puppet on each arm. The kid's a genius! (Okay, I might have helped him put the puppets on).

Yes, Henry is chewing on his sock. No, I didn't tell him to "put a sock in it."

Henry you got a little something on you...oh forget it...

Here's a fun one. Henry's already figured out the toilet....Well...he's figured out how to flush, he'll do that over and over again because he likes the noise. But he is convinced that the toilet is a table. Why not it's at a good height for him to read a book on, so of course it's a table. I just hope he never catches it when we've left the seat up, I'm not drying that wet book!

Here is Henry on his very first nature hike. He'd carried a piece of pickle all the way into the woods and that's what he's eating in that first picture. And as you can see Henry instantly discovered how fun it is to carry sticks and the bigger the better!

Carol took both of these shots on our first trip to the Please Touch Museum, a local museum designed with children in mind. If you're local, it's a lot of fun.

But Henry doesn't always need a fancy kids museum to have fun sometimes all you need is a camera and your mommy. :)

  1. So Calvin... er, Henry, is your retirement plan, huh, John? Good luck with that! :)

    But great pictures, as usual.
