It was an "all Rainey Room" day in the virtual classroom. We were sad that we did not get to see Saul, but we had a great day together. There was so much joy and silliness! We made some messages for friends so that they would know we were thinking of them even in our time apart.
"I'm making a sandwich [message] for Jane [...] with sparkle markers." - Janie, 3.10 years
"Last year, when it was my birthday, she [Bubby] came to school with me and mommy and daddy, but the baby boy was not in mommy's tummy. When I had my poster." - Sylvie
I remember that you brought your poster and Bubby. I remember when Janie had her birthday she brought her mommy and daddy. Audrey, I think we did your birthday on Zoom, and you brought a video.
We saw so many photos of Audrey traveling to so many different places. - Katie
"I"m going to have Christmas with Nai Nai. And Sydney and Nelly going to be there. Sydney is older than Nelly. Nelly is three-year old, and she only drinks milk." - Audrey
She's a baby. She's zero. - Sarah
"At my dentist, he was a boy and he didn't know Moo Moo [Audrey's lovie]." - Audrey
"At my dentist there was a tv in the ceiling of 'Daniel Tiger'." - Sylvie
"You have to go to the dentist cause they have to make sure there no cavities, which is a little hole in our tooth." - Sylvie
"At the doctor when we were done and the dentist got us a new toothbrush." - Audrey
"I got a new toothbrush too!" - Sylvie
"I did that once." - Janie
"Yeah, I was really brave." - Sylvie
Making a plan for Sylvie's birthday:
Before we see Sylvie again, Sylvie is going to have a birthday. So, maybe I can FaceTime with you for a minute to tell you happy birthday. Can we make a plan?
"What if after spring is done, and after all of the snow is gone, we will...before my birthday, we will make a plan. That means that when you remember to FaceTime with me at like...." - Sylvie
[turns to Katie]
"Mommy, what PM is it that the park gets dark?" - Sylvie
Four - Katie
"At four. You will FaceTime with me at 4 pm." - Sylvie
"And remember, you try to think which day is my birthday." - Sylvie
Can I guess now?
"Yeah." - Sylvie
Is your birthday January 6th?
"Yeah!" - Sylvie
"[singing] Happy birthday to Sylvie!" - Janie
