I've been working on a project with our district learning specialists and had to go into "the office" to meet with them. I knew it would be a short meeting so I decided to take Natalie with me. REALLY!?! I packed up what I thought would be entertaining for her: crayons, paper, stuffy, and books. I prayed that she could just play quietly during my meeting so I could basically just "get in" and "get out".
As luck would have it, our secretary bonded with Natalie immediately and began an instant friendship. While I was meeting with the specialists, Natalie conversed with Jeanne and colored in her notebook. As an aside, Nattie likes using crayons her way and often peels the paper from them. Toward the end of our meeting, Jeanne had to leave so I didn't get a chance to thank her or say goodbye. Later that day, I got an email from her...Slice! Truth...
Sorry I had to leave before you were done. Someone was picking me up for lunch. Anyway, your daughter is just so sweet. I loved talking with her. She really makes you smile. It made me miss how much I enjoyed doing day care before I came back to work.
She took the paper off her crayon and I said, 'Oh no, now your crayon is naked.' She looked at me with those really beautiful eyes and said, 'Those aren’t clothes.' She is precious. Just like her Mom. I really enjoyed her visit. Bring her and Wolfie by anytime. I loved it. Have a great day.
