Grace is in preschool in Johnston now. Today was the end of her first full week of preschool here. When I got home from work today the nurse told me a great story. The teacher had asked that Grace bring some toys from home that she really likes, so that they could learn more about what she likes, and be sure to have toys that would motivate her. The assistant she has told the other kids that they weren’t going to be able to play with Grace’s toys. Our nurse said she quickly said that she was sure that Grace would be happy to share her toys. One of the girls then said – “That is how you make friends you know” (by sharing) and they proceeded to play – and at one point another child said, “All right, now it’s Grace’s turn” and Grace was included in the toy sharing.
Moving has been stressful – emotional- tiring. But this story did my heart good. I just had to share.
