Breakfast at Tiffany's...

This summer we all realized just how grown up our Tuckerman had become...and Mrs. Freeman told us, and we agreed, that Tucker needed to be around other children at least PART of the week while Mom and Dad are off educating our future leaders...SO, Tucker is now enrolled two days a week at "Miss Tiffany's" daycare (Doodlebugs).

The first day, big sis Ashlynn came to the rescue and stayed with Tucker in his new environment for the first half of the day. All was fine until he woke up from his nap and was a bit confused as to where he was...and who these people were. Dad swooped in to save the day and took the little man back to work with him (it was a teacher inservice day, so no kids were harmed in the swooping and saving of Little Tuckerman).

The next day, Tucker did much better. However, Tucker's Dad is a bit depressed at being the person responsible for dropping him off at the daycare - it's really hard on his heart to hear his "Little Buddy" cry and howl for him as he leaves to go to work.

Each day Tucker goes, he is getting more comfortable with Miss Tiffany and the other children, and it doesn't hurt that Miss Tiffany jetted out after his first visit to find some new tractor and truck toys for Tucker to play with.

Miss Tiffany is such a jewel, she even allows Tucker to watch the RFD channel occasionally on the playroom T.V. We are so blessed to have the best of both worlds: a daycare setting full of other children and lots of love...and childcare at Grandma and Grandpa's the rest of the time.
