Mega news!

Remy is moving into the TWO YEAR OLD room at daycare on Monday. She actually doesn’t turn two for another two weeks (don’t even get me started on how in denial I am that she’s going to be two so soon), but we are going on vacation the week before her birthday so the daycare wanted to start easing her in this week instead. Their plan is to have her hang out in the new room for a few hours on Monday, then go back to her old room, and increase the number of hours in the new room as the week goes on. In general she’s not the most adaptable kid, but she was one of the youngest kids in her class when we started so all of her friends from when she first started in daycare are already in the two year old room. I expect she’ll be fine since she already knows everyone there. Mike is convinced she’s not going to want to go back to her old room once they have her in the new room for a few hours. I’m not totally sold on that, but we’ll see!

The weather is finally coming around here, so we are hell bent on spending a fair amount of today outside. After I spend the morning doing lots of cooking for the week, of course! Hope you enjoy your weekend and this week’s meal plan. Happy eating!

    Congrats to Remy, I hope it’s a smooth transition.

  2. She’ll love it! My little one didn’t want to even go into the toddler room at a holiday party after moving to the preschool class because he thought he was going back for good! They’re too funny that way. I love what they absorb being with bigger kids and with higher expectations!
