Child development 101
Matt and I work at a liberal arts college with an outstanding, reputable nursery school program. Though adding nursery school to Kyra's schedule meant having her out of the house five mornings a week, we decided the added benefit of some developmentally-focused one on one time between Mommy and Lucas on those two extra mornings would make it all worthwhile. Would you call today's activity gross motor development? Or perhaps fine, if he pauses to stoop and use his pincer grasp to pick up the little flecks of paper passed over by our oh-so-costly vacuum cleaner? Whoever said child development couldn't have a positive impact on the whole family?
