This is going to be a short review, but the week was long for me. I was asked to step up temporarily for my manager and he couldn’t have left at the worst moment because of all the events unfolding within and outside our team. I was working pretty late, but Anna had fun with her papa including baking, playing with playdoh and visiting neighbors. She always plays much better on her own under his care too – he claims that I am spoiling her too much. Anna’s theme in school was Sports. Speaking of sports, swimming is going well, and my husband has decided that he should be able to take over from when this class ends and teach Anna to swim once our community pool opens for summer.
Fine Motor Skills and Arts. Anna’s favorite game this week was “Thanksgiving” with her paper dolls and variety of drawn foods. The best part for her was being able to cut her food into pieces. She was also writing invitations for imaginary guests and drawing pictures. We finally did our Morocco craft – Paper Hands. Anna was delighted to try out her new glitter markers, and I was surprised to see how well they work.
Quotes of the Week: I think that your boss should do his job and your job too. You have a little one who needs you. And you spend too much time on the phone. He can just talk to himself.
