The daycare used to tell me that Nora didn’t talk, that she just sucked her thumb, that she was quiet and calm all day. And I worried. As I wrote before, I worried that all of that observing and “playing” on the sidelines meant she was unhappy at daycare.
Well, as I knew deep down would happen, Nora has broken out of her shell. She talks much more (at home and at daycare) and she also is more interactive. Today I dropped Nora off and Miss Laura told me that Nora has been “lovin’ on” all the boys, holding hands and kissing them. On Monday I had to sign an accident report since she had walked into the corner of a table and scratched her nose while holding tightly onto one of the boys’ hands. Today that same boy screamed for joy when Nora arrived, “NORA!” And then he proceeded to take his shirt off.
It just so happens that this boy is notorious for his energy and crazy dancing. Miss Laura said that if this is the kind of boy Nora is going to go for, we better start worrying now.
As Nora like to say, “uh-oh.”
Oh – and all this kissing has led to yet another sickness for Nora. She came home with a fever today.
Great. Be careful what you wish for, I guess.
