Squally is not enrolled in anybody’s daycare. Why? Because I don’t believe that there is any daycare flexible and focused enough to give me the peace of mind that I need to succeed while I’m at school. I am potentially going to enroll her in daycare once she starts talking, but for now, we have a lovely home bound arrangement. With that being said, I also don’t want her at home all day everyday! She is a very social and friendly child and I want to culture those qualities.
Before moving to Knoxville, Squally was enrolled in kindermusik classes and swimming lessons. She also assisted mommy in babysitting her best friend, Clayton, so she was being socialized heavily! While I wanted to keep her just as active post-move, there’s a huge a adjustment period associated with starting veterinary school. We had a hard time figuring out schedules with just my classes and my husband’s job alone, so in October she restarted gymnastics at the Little Gym (she did a couple of classes over the summer) and she also attended some playdate/ meetings with Parents As Teachers, but nothing regularly scheduled other than gymnastics.
Here we are now in semester two of vet school and my team and I have had ample time to mentally prepare for much more ripping and running! Let me list out Squally’s weekly activites:
