The Hedgehog, by Geno Bieter
Geno has his first school conference on February 3rd at 6:00 pm. The transition seems to be getting easier and easier. He wants me to carry him into the learning room, but then gets excited to pick out his coloring sheet and color. In fact, pick up was even better yesterday. When he saw me he was happy, but talked to me and pointed to all of his friends. Now when I say, "Do yo want to go to school?" He replies with no hesitation, "Yeah!" He also replies to "Yeah" when I ask him if he loves me and if he wants some lunch. However, in the video below he says he doesn't love me.
His clearest and most articulate word is No, which is typical two year
old behavior. At this stage everything could be answered with that word, however, the only real time he is persistence with its utterance is when we ask him if he wants to go to bed. He actually runs away and says "No!" Geno's preschool just published their newsletter which we received a copy, and they mentioned Geno's name as one of the new students welcoming him and his family to the school community. I have included this newsletter as well as Geno's colored masterpiece entitled simply Hedgehog.
Here's a video of Geno one week ago. Mind you it is right before bedtime and he didn't want to cooperate with Mama:
