We took Henry to his first open House party tonight. It was a wild and crazy time. Ok, so it was an Open House for Henry’s daycare, more like a BBQ and yard sale, but Henry still went wild.
So after being anti social for a bit, Henry really cheered up. I think it threw him off that we were going to daycare after hours. Chris said it was the equivalent to when we were kids and would see a teacher at a restaurant or something and think “wait, you exist outside of school?”. Once he realized he wasn’t dreaming though, he went straight to his game face. Henry’s always “on” when it comes to being at daycare, unless he’s sick. That’s usually why he cries in the morning at home, just to get it all out of his system so he can be Captain Awesome at daycare.
While going down the slide, Henry reached out to Chris to help guide him down the slide. Then his teacher came and ratted him out saying “Henry, you usually go down on your own, you don’t need help”. He then chose not to go down the slide for the rest of the night, possibly out of embarrassment.
Another cool thing that happened is that one of the parents came up to Henry and said “Hello Mr. Bond”. Apparently this guy always calls Henry “Mr. Bond” and then he and his wife explained that they think Henry looks like Daniel Craig. And I said “I know eh?” I always joke that Daniel Craig was down in Haiti with me and that he’s Henry’s dad. Chris doesn’t find it so funny for some reason.
So a side note about Henry’s girlfriend. Almost every night when Chris picks up Henry, his teachers tell him stories about Henry hugging and kissing Josee or how they dance together during song time. I think they might be exclusive. They’re the “it” couple of daycare. I’m debating if their couple name should be Jory or Hensee? Thoughts? I also love how my imagination goes wild when I’m told he danced with her. I picture him in this kind of victorian getup and her in a long frilly dress and he goes up to her and bows and says “may I have the pleasure of this next dance my lady” (in a British accent) and she curtsies and says “why of course my good sir” and then they waltz around the room while all the others watch and say “Hensee are so cute together”.
