Back to School

I can’t believe it’s almost back to school time! I always feel nostalgic this time of year. I still remember the beginning of the year jitters as a teacher like it was yesterday! August, to me, always means the start of fall. I’m beginning to get super psyched for the cool nights, apple crisp, and sitting on the porch with a blanket and candles.

Time seems to be FLYING by! Before I know it, Turner will be getting his back to school clothes and backpack for the school year! But, for now, he’s all mine…which is why we started “Babygarten”. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE spending all day with this cute little munchkin! But, honestly, it’s time to socialize.

Babygarten is a class at our library. We meet one morning a week for about an hour and sing songs and read a book. Turner isn’t a big fan yet. He seems to be bothered by the large crowd, everyone clapping, and babies running amok. Then again, who wouldn’t be?

Turner and his friend, Lola, are in the class together. Which means the mommies get some time together!
Now, Lola is as pretty as she can be. And, I’m sure in a few years, Turner will be in love with her. But, at the moment, he’s a bit intimidated by her. It’s probably because she likes to bounce up and down on her knees waving her hands in his face like she’s putting him under a spell! I can’t wait to show them this picture when they’re in high school!
This past class was a little better. There were no tears! Turner seemed to be better at socializing. Although, in the beginning, he crawled AWAY from the crowd to the corner to play with a toy.

I had to pick him up and put him in the mix. He might be shy like his daddy when he grows up!
This class is a hilarious break from real life. It’s like we are transported to a happy little bubble full of nursery rhymes and “YAAAAAAY”s. Plus, there’s so much baby chunk in one room that I can’t HELP but love it! We only have a few classes left, but I hope Turner warms up to the other munchkins in the room!

  1. Great experience for Turner. I’m sure he is enjoying it in his own way. His expression seem to be better as he got use to it. Those kids look so precious.
    Fall is my time of the year. Counting the days. Have a good week. Love You Nanny.

  2. Mixing with others is so important at this stage. Trust that Turner will be making really good friends very soon.
