I got to work in Lauren's class this morning for her their Valentine's party. It started off being a smooth morning and the boys were all set to go to the sitter, but then out of nowhere Garrett's stomach started acting up. He laid down on a pillow and said, clear as day "I sick". I was shocked that he communicated exactly what he was feeling so clearly! I was afraid that he would start throwing up or something, so I made a quick decision to take both boys with me. Yes, I totally risked getting other kids sick, but these are the choices that moms of many have to make. I had already committed to doing her class party and I couldn't leave her teacher high and dry! Good thing Garrett stayed on my hip or in my lap the entire time. And Devin behaved pretty well, integrating okay with the rest of the class. Garrett never did throw up, but poor kid is just feeling off.
I was in charge of Valentine games. There's a website that I use on a regular basis for stuff like this called DLTK. You can get all kinds of coloring pages and print offs and games. You can create your own BINGO games and I think I've done them for every single holiday now. You can get the perfect class games! Today we did Valentine BINGO (or BE MINE as we called it) and Valentine matching. The kids loved it and I had fun being in her class!
