It looks like the theme for the week is “first time evers”.
So this week we started a play school/toddler group. I say “we’ because Gia and me go to this school together. We do fun stuff like circle time and arts and play dough. And then I get to sneak into the other room and we (the adults) talk about mommy stuff (pass out on the couch from it being too quiet ) while Gia continues mingling with the other kids.
You guys! It’s almost unreal observing Gia with other human being who are more or less her size. The pushing and shoving that goes on!
Things I learned this week:
1. The sandbox is a tough place. One of Gia’s “classmates” shoved her so hard over some plastic bread that she fell down. Her mother was mortified! Poor lady.
2. She looked considerably relieved when Gia got back up and snatched that exquisite piece of plastic right back.
3. And after all of fifteen seconds they were playing with each other as if nothing happened. Hope for humanity lives on.
Life lessons, it would seem, start early.
