Everyone is almost back to 100% in the house, health-wise. Malcolm's cough has finally subsided thanks to the dose of the steroid puffer and Melody looks like she's turned the corner as well. Now if we could only find a cure for the boy's attitude. I think the most heart-breaking thing is that we know he can be so good. He's apparently an absolute gem at Daycare and when people visit the house you couldn't find a more charming 4 year old. Unbeknownst to many is how ornery and cantankerous he can be at home. A lot of times he's downright mean to Tracey, yelling at her being so oppositional that attempting mundane tasks like getting dressed can often spark a full-fledged tantrum. Sigh.
It's been quite a busy time at Malcolm's Daycare. He's had his first Christmas concert, breakfast with Santa, made gingerbread houses and even visited the local Kindergarten to share in their pancake breakfast with Santa; such a busy time this Christmas season. Malcolm's going to need some kind of therapy to work through the withdrawal that's going to happen in January. Here are some pictures from the recent events at his daycare. Pictured below are quite possibly four of the nicest and most caring teachers ever. (L-R) Miss Pam, Miss Aman, Miss Margaret and Miss Doris are pictured below:
