Thank you Bright Horizons!

This week Mia starts in a new daycare in our town, which means last week was the end of her time at Bright Horizons in Braintree. This change is probably more traumatic for me than Mia because they are in my old office building and so I got to visit a lot when Brady was there as an infant. Kathy, Peggy, and Sue took such good care of both of them that we're convinced their playful demeanor towards each other stems from their days in daycare. We can't say enough good things about everyone there, so we'll just say "thank you for caring for our kids like they were your own!"

We'll miss you!

And since they are always asking how Brady is doing, he's doing great and well on his way to being potty trained. Irene introduced the potty incentive chart where he gets a sticker for every time he poops in the potty, and every five stickers he gets a little award. Last week he hit his first milestone! - and got a toy car. Next up is a trip to the museum of science to see the dinosaurs exhibit (Brady loves dinosaurs). Tonight, he said "I have to go potty" and proceeded to sit there until he achieved his goal "I'm going to get another sticker so I can go to see the dinosaurs!"
I don't know if it's going to be easier or harder with him potty trained, but I guess we'll soon find out!

Daddy's little girl

Mia's daycare teachers have said from Day 1 that Mia looks a lot like me. My parents gave me this picture of me when I was Mia's age. What do you think?

Hot and Cold

Brady: I'm cold dad. Mom says turn up the heat.

Jason: It's not that cold.

Brady: But I'm cold dad.

Jason: Look at Mia. Why don't you put on your snow clothes like her?

Brady: Okay. Good idea dad.

Who said I didn't learn anything from my dad?
