ON PRESCHOOL - Tiny Tots, Friend or Foe

Well, a lot of things have happened since the last time we last chatted.  The biggest is Nathaniel started school.  That's right, we're hoping the age-old childhood temptation to eat glue will get Nate to start eating again.  We weren't really sure how it would go but knew we needed to get Nate more out in the world. 

Thankfully, he loves going to Tiny Tots for the most part.  He loves to feed the pet turtle, ride his wheelchair in a circle with the kids on their bikes, participate in Zoophonics (which is a thing apparently) and provide a useful podium for kids to rest on during circle time.  His vent is the perfect height for a weary child to rest on whilst sitting.

He's had a little bit of a hard time with school lately though.  He got a cold about 3 weeks ago and that means weeks of no sleep for any of us, which dramatically affects his mood and desire to leave the house. 

Snack time has been a good opportunity for Nate to feel enough social pressure to try foods.  He gets the snacks everyone else does and will try them frequently....then spit them out.  Well, Nate's version of spitting which is opening his mouth and hoping the food will hop out or the stream of drool will carry the crumbs out. 

Since school has started he has been much more talkative, imaginative and outgoing.  We're happy we have such a great preschool so close to us.

From your friendly neighborhood Nate:

You'll have to speak up, I'm on my car phone.
