When my son was just a little guy, his world revolved around trucks, tractors, backhoes…but most of all the well driller and it’s friend – Yellow Truck.
|I could not find a picture of the original Yellow Truck so here’s it successor – Mostly Yellow Truck. (sorry for the repeat pic posting…)|
Jon was quiet when you took him out of his comfort zone (home). And he was very shy. We thought it was important that he attend pre-school, otherwise we were very afraid that kindergarten would be an absolutely heart-breaking scene (for Jon and his mom ☺).
So, Jon went to pre-school for the two years before kindergarten. A very lovely co-op pre-school where the parents took turns working, which I loved. It would be a gradual separation process.
For the entire first year, when Jon was three years old, he never spoke at school. I’m serious. At the end of the year, the parents were presenting a book to the very wonderful teacher. They were collecting quotes from each student. The quote that I submitted from Jon looked like this:
Jon loved that yellow truck!
