1st day of School- Guest Blogger, Grandma

Today was the first day of school for Genevieve. We had  our "grandma and me" class at the Tiny Tots building in Upland. There are about eight babies in the class. It is almost all girls. There is only one boy. There was one other grandma there.

We started with playing with the tub of toys. You wre a little shy at first, but then started walking around and trading toys with the other babies. Not that they wanted to trade, but you were  trying to trade. We did some songs and finger plays and activities--Itsy Bitsy Spider, The Noble Duke of York, and Criss Cross Applesauce. I knew some, but need to learn all of them. 
Next we had a craft to make an apple. Some of the moms were in a panic because we were finger painting, but I figured that you can always wash the paint off. I tried to let you do as much as you wanted and could. Your were a mess on your clothes, hands, face, and leg.  After cleaning up we did Ring Around the Rosie with a parachute. You got to ride around in the middle and then sit under it while the moms fluttered it up and down. 
We had a song about a train that I need to learn. Your favorite part was the end when the teacher blew bubbles and you got to pop them. Now you were smiling and laughing. I had to take off your onesie to wash out the paint and you got to go play with the kitchen set that you had your eye on all morning. While it cleaned the paint off your outfit you explored the other toys in the room. You finished off with belly bumping another baby and laughing.
We return next week. I think you will enjoy it when you learn the routine and feel comfortable. Second day of school here we come.
