And Then There Were Four

We're creating this blog because it's the cool thing to do when people are having a baby. Just kidding, really we already have a hard enough time keeping up with everyone we want to, and our lives are about to get even more wonderfully busy. We can't wait - and we want you guys to be able to share in it too, so we both plan on reporting on it. Read at your own risk, and hopefully you'll enjoy it!

The Ladies Man

Ben started child care today. Brian and I spent a lot of time thinking about this and debating and we finally started looking for a place at the beginning of the summer. We found a place that we love that happened to have an opening and Ben began today. We love our babysitters....all three of them are wonderful and we feel totally comfortable leaving Ben under their care. The problem is that they are all students so their schedules change each semester and their availability goes down. So Ben was dropped off this morning at the child care center.

Of course he cried when I passed him off to someone else. He does this routinely though (church, babysitters etc) so I wasn't surprised or alarmed. I left the room and went to do some paperwork and by the time I came back and looked in the window, he was pushing a truck across the floor with squinchy face on. Ben is in a classroom with 5 other kids ranging from age 3 months to 1 year. They are all female. The guy/girl ratio is highly unbalanced. If Ben were 18 years older, he would think this equation rocked. But he's too young and has no idea that he's surrounded by females and will most likely be playing barbies and dress up unless some boys come in the classroom.

He did great. The people watching him said he did fantastic. 2 solid naps- one of them 2 hours long. I don't think he's ever slept that long for me. Didn't cry when going down for nap. Ate green beans. Amazing. We feel really good about the set up and we're thanking God for providing this center for us.
