Delightful Daycare

You know this week I wanted to do an update post about Avy’s allergy situation and another one about all the cool new things he is saying. However what happened this morning and earlier in the week has spurred this post!

I posted a while ago about the dilemma (Daycare Dilemma) and issues about sending your kid to daycare. Well this post is about the exact opposite feelings, feeling of happiness, love and delight that I witnessed this morning.

First let me post about what happened earlier in the week. We had to take Avy for an appointment to get some kind of shoe inserts done to help with the arch formation on his feet. The appointment was at 2.30pm which meant Avy had to go back to daycare as neither of us could just take half a day off.

Both of us had figured that Avy may cry when my husband drops him back off, as Avy may just want to go home, but boy o boy did he surprise us.

So Daddy goes to pick him up from the daycare at about 2.20 pm and apparently,  Avy did not want to leave. He was watching his favorite teacher make flowers out of play dough. So after a battle of crying my husband succeeded in taking him to the appointment.

So after the appointment, all Avy wanted to do was just go back his class. I mean I really thought the kid would want to come home!!!!

Daddy drops him back at the daycare, little Charley comes running and hugs little Avy. You would think these kids only see each other once a year!!!

That evening when daddy was narrating this to me, Avy goes,

 “Charley is soooo nice. Charley hugged me”  :):)

Happy  face, happy thoughts!!!

So that brings us to this morning.

First thing this morning we has a physical therapy session for Avy, since he has minor issues with the way he bears weight on his leg. The session was a success, Avy was happy, eager to do all the new stuff they suggested and for the first time ever, he actually jumped, holding my hand. He has been trying for months, but his little feet would never take off, but today it did and was a wonderful moment. Little did I know that the best was yet to come…

After the session, we packed to go to daycare. I took him; his dad takes him every day, but  today I did , as I stayed home for his appointment. We go to the daycare, climb down the stairs to his class, and Avy’s excitement was brimming. I open the door and all the tiny tots come running to Avy, and start chanting, “Avy, Avy, Avy…” and my boy is all red and smiling. Then of course to add to the mix, his favorite favorite teacher comes by and asks him “How are you sweety?. He just ran into her arms…

Then she tells me that sweet little Benji has been asking for Avy all morning, and she said like every five minutes he would go,

“Where is Avy?  Why is Avy not here?”….

And while she was talking, Benji runs over to my little boy who was trying to get his jacket off and hugs him tight!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best scene ever!!!!

Then Benji tells promptly to Avy ,”Tell mommy bye”!!

Maybe Benji was worried that if I lingered around I might take his best friend away :):)

I walked out smiling, not able to contain my happiness and thinking, we did good!!!! He is happy!!


p.s Charley and Avy have been together since they were 4 months old

Benji and Avy has been greatest of friends since they were a year old.
