A fun morning - Bummer Knees - 01-30-2008 09:52 AM
A family friend called earlier this week needing help.
He is a single grandpa whom babysits his 21 month grandbaby while his daughter works.
This family friend is also disabled from a work injury and has a doctor appointment this moring.
So guess what I am doing this morning.
I have my bag packed, fine motor activities, easy arts & crafts,
and of course plenty of story books...Blues Clues & other adventures.
I still have all of my classroom supplies from working as an early childhood teacher.
I will post later how the morning went.

It was a fun morning, before the morning was out this little one was working on her fine motor skills.
Cutting small stirps of paper, pasting with a glue stick, coloring & playing with play dough.
Even found time for Blues Clues and other story books. Of course I stayed within my restrictions and this little one is big enough that she can climb on my lap, no bending or lifting.
I am from a small town and this little one's mother worked at the college in HR when I was injured and was my strongest advocate. Mom no longer works for the college and works in another town.

Thank you everyone. I very much enjoyed the day. Sometimes when we have medical problems and spend a lot of time at home it seems as if no one from the outside world needs us or cares.
So it was nice to be needed.
Grandpa got a good report from his doctor and is not needing surgery at this time, he has problems with his back and while working as a correctional officer was assulted by an inmate.
