Thursday, 29 May 2014: One Year and Sixty Days Old.
I picked Ayla up today to discover piggy tails in her hair!!
Oh my gosh, it was adorable, and I think it might become Ayla’s customary ‘do.
It made me realise that day care is definitely shaping the person Ayla is becoming.
It’s a good thing, I think. If it weren’t for day care I probably wouldn’t have thought to try a pony tail, let alone piggy tails!
I guess sending Ayla today care is particularly useful because I have no idea or experience with anything child related.
For example I probably wouldn’t have thought to try finger painting with Ayla but apparently she loves it!
As good as day care is though, there’s a part of me, deep down, that is sad I’m not discovering these things on my own.
I would love to have seen Ayla’s face the first time she put her hands in a tub of paint, and it would have been so exciting to realise her hair was finally long enough to style!
But I guess it’s all part and parcel of modern day life. So few people are in a position to stay at home with their kids, and I have to remind myself how lucky I was to have a whole year at home.
