We went the first 2 times with her, and today she went by herself. Teachers said she does everything she's told, uses the potty w/o issue (been a real struggle for us), eats all of her food (another struggle for us) and is generally a pleasure to be around (that we know, she's a good kid):heart:.

Problem is, she likes it so much she doesn't want to leave. It took 2 teachers and me to get her out of there, she weighs 30 lbs. and it's like wrestling a bear:funny1:. UMBAlievable!

I really like the place, I think the ratio of teachers to kids is about 4/5-1. Seems like a good # to me:dunno:. Spendy, but I want the best for my Daughter. It really is quite the operation. Now, I just need to figure out a way to get her to leave w/o such a struggle. "Let's go see Mommy" didn't do jack shit, usually that'll seal the deal. Not sure what she likes more than that, maybe ice cream sandwiches:lol:.

it's awesome that she loves it there.

She'll get used to leaving. It's only been a few times, it's still new to her. She'll get used to leaving.

Although I had kids that never wanted to leave my classroom. I used to have to hug them for like 10 minutes and promise i'd be there the next day for them :heart:

Thanks for the good news:funny1:. That was quite the scene I tell ya.

Between the strength, strong will, interest in dangerous action sports (specifically snowboarding), and close Friends who can help her get into it, I think this kid is destined for greatness. Of course, every parent thinks the world of their kid(s).

Really funny shit when we're watching The Outside Channel and some dudes base jump off a mountain; she looks at me and says, "I must do that!" I'm just thinking, you've gotta be kidding me:huh:.:funny1: She's got the fire just like the chick she takes her middle name from. Fire I tell ya!

Baio, Delia said, just give me a gun
He shot my Billy dead and now I'm gonna see him hung
She waded to DeLyon's club through Billy DeLyon's blood
Stepped up to Stagger Lee at the bar, said buy me a gin fizz love

As Stagger Lee lit a cigarette, she shot him in the balls
Blew the smoke off her revolver, had him dragged to City Hall
Baio, Baio, see you hang him high
He shot my Billy dead and now he's got to die:jamguy:
