It’s official! My little buddy is a wobbler!! Lewis moved up from the “infant” classrooms to the “wobbler” classroom, where he should be for the next year or so, before moving on to “toddlers”.
He started in his new class yesterday, and I was quite nervous about how he’d do with the transition. He is so bonded to his old teachers in the infant classroom, and I wasn’t sure how he’d do with all the new teachers and new surroundings.
No come-rescue-your-child phone call came during the workday, much to my delight, and when I arrived to pick kiddo up, they reported that he only cried twice – once when they had to come back in after being outside, and once when his favorite infant class teacher came to visit and then left. Not bad!!!
He is still a little funny about which things he’ll eat because he isn’t the biggest fan of chewing, so he refused some of the provided food (guys… they provide food in wobblers! huzzah!), but that wasn’t the end of the world. He just ate a lot of bananas and crackers with hummus. And today I left a few pouches to cover the eventuality that he refuses more food today. Hopefully these pesky molars that are slowly slowly slowly working their way out will help him get over his chewing-aversion!
I couldn’t be prouder of my little munchkin for transitioning so smoothly. He’s getting less and less nervous around strangers, and is getting much more social and interactive with other children. It is such a delight to watch him come out of his little baby shell and turn into a “wobbler” butterfly.
