Alex is over his fear of daycare, Skyler is on the mend!

Today was daycare day for Alex.  This used to be such a dreaded event.  Today, Sky wasn't going to school or daycare because he needed one more day to recover from a bout of strep throat.  So Dusty (who let me sleep in!) was planning on taking Alex to daycare around 10am.  Well...8am rolls around and Dusty says to Alex: "You go to daycare today".  Alex responded with "STACY???" (this is his favorite girl, and as a result, ANY childcare provider in Alex's world is now named Stacy).  Dusty assured him that, yes, he'd see Stacy.

At this point, Alex starts jumping up and down and screaming "STACY!" at the top of his lungs.  After a minute, he ran to his room and yelled for his dad to help him get dressed.  Alex then came in and woke me up, excitedly sharing the news that he was off to daycare.  He even brought his backpack in to show me he was all ready!  So, Alex went to daycare 1 1/2 hours before he would have...and apparently loves it there!

Skyler will be going back to school tomorrow, and is very excited to get back!  He had a good time going to work (a.k.a. Grandma's house) with me, but is ready to see his buddies again.

Hope everyone is having a good week!
