On Sundays, when we go to church, Vivian goes to the nursery, which is run by E and K, who are also our babysitters. This is the report I got from K today as I picked Vivian up:
K: Vivian and G (a girl about the same age as Vivian) played together very nicely today.
K: They took turns playing with the baby.
I smiled some more. How sweet of them to share.
K: They took turns suffocating it.
Oy. Clearly, at 18 months, their mothering skills aren't quite up to par yet.
I guess I better supervise Vivian closely so she doesn't practice her still-developing mothering skills in Germany next month with her new cousin who was born today!
Congratulations, Sebastian & Marion on the birth of your little boy! I can't wait to meet him in a few weeks!
