James' friend at daycare, Kippy (his full name is Kipton, which cracks me up), is in the middle of the terrible twos. He's 1 year (and 3 days) older than James and he makes me fear for the future. Although Rhonda tells me that James is the most obedient toddler she's seen and quite different from Kippy a year ago, I know that we too will deal with (more) toddler tantrums. Yesterday was a landmark day for Kip... he bit just about everyone in daycare. He only got James through the shirt, but he has a good bite mark on his left shoulder. I noticed it during James' bath yesterday and when I talked to Rhonda this morning she told me that James never let on that he'd been bitten. She felt so awful that James had been bitten, but I know its just a part of daycare and playing with other kids. Yesterday, James did have a meltdown over a cookie and took a swipe at Rhonda. He was promptly put in his pack n play to calm down. After just a few moments James was ready to play again. I really do think Rhonda is a saint for taking care of these kids all day everyday!
