A Thank You Note to Piglet

Dear Piglet,

I can't thank you enough for the support you have provided to Charlotte over the past few weeks as she has transitioned to the Toddler 2 room. You have escorted her in every morning and faithfully stood by her side throughout the day. She has gone from a scared, teary eyed girl clinging to my neck to a confident girl that walks right into the room.

I do apologize for the toll this has taken on you, though. I understand that you have been found abandoned on the playground, shoved in a cubby, and thrown over the side of the crib - but all the time a smile on your face! You have so patiently sat at the table with Charlotte as she tried to feed you things like yogurt and applesauce - even though it just ends up matted in your fur. I will do my part to see that from here on out you are given a bath more often - so you don't look quite so dirty loved.

Thanks again, Piglet - I find so much comfort knowing that Charlotte has you to hug throughout her day.

So glad that Charlotte is adjusting to the new class. I always see her in the mornings with her little piglet. Jamie is dong SO much better, but we are still struggling a little in the mornings with the dropoff, and he has been waking up at night, too. He'll get there soon I hope. :)

Is that the piglet we gave her, or has she progressed to other piglets? So sweet!!

If she's becoming attached to Piglet, I suggest that you run out and buy 5 more just like him. Mariel needed her "Weezy" doll and I shudder to think what might have happened if I hadn't been ready when we lost one.

In a book called the Tao of Pooh, (actually a lot more philosophical and less of a humor book than one might think), Piglet is the hesitator...the one who worries over change. I'm sure there's a metaphor in there somewhere, how Piglet is helping her through the change by reminding her of the old...
I remember when I was little that everyone always loved Tigger and Pooh...and I was partial to Piglet and Rabbit. Wonder what that says about my personality...
