In a feat of cleverness that rivals putting Vaseline on doorknobs, our daycare center sent us a flyer with the headline “Meet your future in-laws (got your attention?)” to inform us of an open house/PTA meeting. I nearly lost my lunch. I have a hard enough time picturing Rae walking and talking, let alone marrying someone. Definitely a sobering moment.
The meeting went really well, despite the call to action. First we sat through some PTA rah-rah presentation about fundraising and then adjourned to another room, just for parents of infants & toddlers. We got to hear the owner present on school philosophies, enjoy some snacks and watch a video of the kids.
All parents love seeing their kids on video. It’s like crack: once you pop, you can’t stop (wait, that’s not it).
We learned a lot about the staff, the guiding principles of the center and the committment of the management. All in all a very good night.
