I'm so sad ;(

As I am putting away Mikka's art/crafts this week, as I look at them I can't help but feel some twitch on my heart... sigh...

Thursday night, our daycare lady called me to break her news that they are moving out of state in 2 months because her husband found a good job offer in Pensylvania. He did try to look around for a job locally so they could keep the daycare and wouldn't have to move but that didn't workout for them.My heart broke as Mikka and the other kids in her daycare (there's 2 other girls who go to her and an 8 month old boy) love love love her so much! She's their 2nd mom pretty much. Plus the care she has for the kids is just unbelievable!

Mikka learned so much from her - crafts, reading books, pretend plays, dress-up, singing, dancing, puzzles and a whole bunch of other fun stuff they do everyday. I'm not one of those crafty moms so imagine how proud I am whenever my daughter comes home with crafts and artworks she did at Ms Terrie's. Regardless whether its just a page of coloring book with my daughter's scribbles and doodles or some paper with stickies, I feel so lucky that our daycare lady's commitment to stimulate the kids learning in every possible way is just remarkable!

The picture on the right shows 2 of Mikka's "artworks" that always make us smile and be proud of our little girl. She did them with the help of Ms Terrie of course! In a couple of months Ms Terrie and her family are leaving and I don't know how it's going to impact the kids. I hope they're still young enough to get traumatized by this.

Anyways, now we're on the lookout again for another in-home daycare as daycare centers are not even an option for us. We're not putting the kiddo in a daycare center, period. The small in home daycares is what we think is best for her until she's ready for preschool.

Preschool... wow, that's like next year already! Somebody stop the time from flying sooo fast!
I know there are other stuff going on around that are way more sad than this... but I'm just human, come on. We come to love Ms Terrie and her family and them leaving just really broke my heart ;(

What's Your Name sweetheart?

Conversation with the kiddo...

Me: What's your name sweetheart?
Kiddo: Mikka!
Me: Mikka what?
Kiddo: Mikka G***
Me: What about daddy? What's daddy's name?
Kiddo: John!
Me: John what?
Kiddo: John G***
Me: What about mommy's name?
Kiddo: Ann (I don't usually go by my first name however it's much easier for her to pronounce it, short and simple)
Me: Ann what????
Kiddo: Ann, O, P, Q, R, S...

** she thought her mommy's name is "N", haha ;) **

Not a UFO...

I just parked my car at work and I saw this balloon ;) Too bad I can't zoom in my phone as much so this is the best shot I could get. There were actually 2 of them but I was too lazy to find the spot so I can take pics of them both, ha! It was friggin 50F this morning so I hope the people up there bundled up pretty good ;)

Been seeing lotsa balloons these days cuz the weather's getting warmer. Whenever Mikka sees one of these she would say, "Beni!!! Sticky tape!!!" --- just because one of those Dora episodes she'd seen was when Beni was stuck in a balloon asking for help and sticky tape cuz the balloon has a hole on it. It's been a while since we saw that episode I'm surprised she remembered. Yeah, whaddaya expect from a Dora fan? Ha!

Pooooh Thing!!!

Mikka was sitting down by the door and munching on her chips when she heard her dad opening the door from outside while talking on the phone.

Immediately she screamed- "Daaaaddy!!!"

She was excitedly waiting for him to open the door and step in. Since he was talking on the phone, he decided to stay outside a bit longer...

Mikka was still waiting and when her dad still didn't step in, she ran towards me, pointing at the door and said "Daddy, stuck! Pooooh thing (poor thing!)!!!"

Yeah, cracks us up big time! ;)
