Butterflies Day Care-Weekly Update

This past week has been Clayton's best ever! Everyday we arrived at day-care there was a very confident boy walking to his classroom. There wasn't a tear or tantrum in sight. What a sigh of relief for Mr and I. We did not realize that when we put Potato in Butterflies that is was going to take an emotional toll on our family. Mr along with myself were constantly trying to reassure people that this was the best thing for our baby. I am not so sure why it took so long or caused us so much anxiety, but we had to set our boundaries as the parents. Along with all of that the day care is not cheap by any means, but you also get what you pay for and we pay a good penny. I am very proud to say that so far we have been doing it all on our own. It is a struggle each month but its made us realize that we spend a little to frivolously. Along with getting a financial planner we have set a budget for ourselves and so far it is working wonders. Credit cards are getting paid off and plans are being made for our future. The sense of accomplishment is enough to give me a little pep in my step each day!Anyway back to what this blog is about: Potato's weekly day-care update.

The letter of the week was E. His art was an elephant cut out.

The theme for the week was animals, Eve, Garden of Eden.

Clayton is best at playing outside. Duh!

He loved reading this week. I read somewhere that if you read to the mat least 20 minutes a day you are doing them wonders. I know that he understands practically everything we say because he is a pointer and nods yes and no when we ask him questions. This gives Mr and I confidence because he is not really saying a lot of words. He will do it when he is ready and every kid is on their own schedule no matter what your books say. He has been saying a few words this week and we could not be happier. Oggy(doggy), Kiddy-Kiddy(Kitty), Aunty or Gaggy(Aunt Claire), Deeedy(Daddy),Boo(then he pops out from behind something), and of course mastered Go-Go.He nods yes and no and sometimes we hear him say the words.

Bible verse- Proverbs 20:11
Even a child is known by his actions, by whether his conduct is pure and right.
