Free Hugs

Thursday, August 11, 2011 by Gymbo Buzz Blog Contest

I probably kiss mGymboree Play & Music, Family Classes, Second Home, Play Place, Kids Classes, Baby Classes, Toddler Playy son Jack 300 times a day and give him at least three dozen hugs. Every time I shower him with a kiss or wrap my arms around his little shoulders, I tell him: "Mommy is giving you a big kiss and a big hug." I was just blown away one day at our Gymboree Play and Music Play & Learn classes when Jack crawled over to a friend, propped himself up on his knees and reached out to give his playmate a huge squeeze. My heart melted. His little arms were firmly wrapped around these tiny shoulders, belly button touching belly button. I like to think that I had something to do with this, but I know this was all Jack. With the occasional hug for a teddy bear at home, Jack loves to hug friends at Gymboree, whether they want one or not. It really is the sweetest thing to see, and it warms my heart every time. Free hugs for everyone!

We LOVE having Jack in class! Jack has been one of our "milestone babies". I feel very lucky that I got to meet him in Level 1, watch him learn to crawl in Level 2, and celebrate his 1st birthday in Level 3! You deserve a lot of credit for bring Jack to Gymboree so consistently-through crazy Chicago snowstorms and heatwaves and beyond. Thank you for letting us spend time with this awesome guy!
