Today I discovered just how negligent we are as parents – Oliver came home from daycare with a bunch of valentines from his […hmm…what do I call them? co conspirators of cheekiness and mayhem? co prisoners? colleagues? fellow students?…] little friends and treats too! As well as a little mailbox that may just feature his first scribbles. Or some other kid drew them on for him – who knows.

Anyway, the point is – we didn’t send anything. Oops. I really didn’t even think about it. Valentines’ Day in England isn’t so much a day for the kiddies in Mark’s experience and I’ve just been too sick in the mind and body to think about it properly. So I think we are going to have to send some stuff for his last day there in a few weeks. I just need to find something certified 100% definitely peanut free and kid friendly to take.

I have actually lost any sense of guilt of taking him there, really, in particular for the last 3 days when I’ve been home and technically I could have had him at home too. But why, when he literally is acting like he has the time of his life there. He often comes home tired and miserable – cranky for food and drink and bed, after a busy day. But the whole time he is there, he’s as happy as a clam. Are clams happy? Who knows – Oliver is. I’ve had the chance to pick him up and drop him off and he really does love it. He just loves being around other kids and it’s great. I think the daycare we chose has been a really good introduction for him, and I’m sorry that we are going to have to switch when we move, but I am sure he’ll settle in the new place too.
