Vital Years

When I was pregnant with Ethan, I worked in Vital Years until the day I gave birth to him and quit to be a full time mother. Few days ago, I got a call from the Centre’s boss inquiring if I am able to get back to work. I went there with Ethan to see what arrangement she can work out for me :)
Ethan totally blend in with the kids. He had no qualms about being left there in the classroom while I sat outside discussing with my boss.
He brought along 20 foam Christmas tree ornaments that we did to be given out to his new friends. The kids swarm around him like bees :)
Come meal time, he happily joined the kids for a light snack.
He even communicated well with the facilitators and read a book or two.

Looking at how happy he was and how well he blended with the kids motivated me to get back to work. But somehow, the arrangement kind of clashes with my own classes at home. I have to try to reschedule several of my classes and see if I can accommodate to their working hours. My target this time is to send Ethan there only twice a week (one hour/session) and gradually see how he goes… If all goes well, we’ll be going to Vital Years in January :)
