07 Sep 06 Marley’s new daycare

Marley started her new daycare yesterday and was a superstar! She kissed me goodbye within 10 minutes of our arrival and that was it. The teachers say she was the star of circletime (that’s song singing, for those of you who don’t know the daycare lingo) and had a great day. She was supposed to go in for half days all week, but because she’s transitioned so well, she’s there all day today.

We’re learning about New York living very quickly. For example, I’m beginning to understand why people don’t have cars. Every Thursday, we need to move our car so the street can be cleaned from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. I found a parking space 3 blocks away, so that was cool. When I moved the car back at 2:03 p.m., however, all the spots on the entire block were taken. In the approximately six minutes it took me to walk to the car and move it, every space was gone. Crazy. We haven’t used the car since we arrived here a week and a half ago, so we really have to evaluate whether the insurance expense is worth it.

Every convenience is within walking distance and big things can be delivered – like diapers, which I ordered from They have great prices and deliver right to your door. Gotta love the Internet!

    Happy to hear that you’re all getting into the swing of things. I can just picture Marley settling in at Day Care with confidence and joy. Can’t wait to witness it in a little less than a month from now.
    Miss you and love you all!
