Dear C (age 14 months),
You will owe Grandmom BIG TIME when you are older. She has watched you ever Friday from 8:30 AM until 1:00 PM. You are her little buddy and she takes you on walks and to the mall. She feeds you lunch and many snacks, plays with you, and just loves on you!
And, WHY do you get all this attention?
Because you are absolutely miserable when mommy leaves you at co-op. You screamed basically the entire three hours one week and it about killed me. That is when I called in your Grandmom for reinforcement.
She came to co-op with us, hoping you would adjust to the nursery more easily if she was there.
This is you on that morning, terrified to let me go. I, on the other hand, enjoyed the snuggles for a few minutes.
Once I left, the screaming began. Horrible screaming. Until your Grandmom put you in the stroller and took you out of the building on a little walk.
You were finally calm for about a half hour...that is until she tried to take you back into the building.
You started screaming again as soon as you got to the front door.
And it pained your Grandmom's heart, so she got the car seat from me and took you home.
And she has been watching you on Friday mornings ever since.
Yes, my boy, you owe your Grandmom for this one day.
