Great Day at Day Care

Gpa has been worried about me leaving him places so I wasn’t sure how today would go.  However, I’ve been able to keep him happy when I leave him at day care with the promise of coffee on the way.

I got so much done but then thought.  OH NO!  I could have had a nap and a bath instead.  Oh well.  maybe next time.

When I picked him up, he was looking for his room.  He didn’t want to go home with me.  He thought he was home and was looking for his room.  I let him make another lap and talked to the activity director.  Today Gpa played Bingo, Candyland and then lined up and counted Checkers.  Sounds like a great day to me.

On his way around again, the activity director and I were able to divert his path to go to the car.   He was so worried about not remembering how he got their.  I kept repeating that we drove.  Didn’t help.

So when we got home, I wrote the posted note.  It worked great and he read it several times while I fixed dinner.  I am so glad he can read my writing.

I was able to get him to go with me to the community garden after dinner and finish what I was doing on the left hand path.  I now only have the front path to sift, paper/cardboard and wood chip.  I’ll be ready for the plant sale on Sat!!  The garden is looking great and I feel like I’m now on or a bit ahead of schedule.

He got tired of waiting for me and wanted to get in the car.  I didn’t want him in the car yet and wouldn’t unlock it.  He made a lap around the car and then sat by the passenger door.  When I took the last load of wood chips to the path, I encouraged him to come with me and he just waved me off disgustedly.

But oh was he so happy when I finally did unlock the door!  He’s asleep in his bed now and I got a great hot shower.  I would have to bet that he’ll sleep through the night tonight.  And if he doesn’t I will!
