This Monday was my son's last day at Gymboree. He started at about 18 months and is now 5 years old, sadly, we must move on. I wanted to express my gratitude to Gymboree Play & Music and all of the awesome teachers who touched our hearts. You ladies have given my son knowledge, confidence, the ability to share and play, but mainly you gave him an incredible experience that will now be a very special childhood memory that will be cherished forever.
Thank you Miss Coco for singing loud and for sharing your immense enthusiasm when you did story time or sang ABC on play floor. Your elephant sounds will never be forgotten. I know one day he will master it. Thank you Miss Alex for always having such a warm smile and hug. Jaydon loved you before you even became his teacher. Thank you for sitting with him during his difficult days. You knew that would make him feel better. As a mom, it was a beautiful sight to see. You've been there during boo boo times giving him a little extra love to make him feel better. Miss Jess, your teaching skills are so meticulously calculated. You never missed a step. I loved watching you in class and on the floor. You mastered multitasking with toddlers!! That is amazing! I wish we could have spent more time with you. Ms. Mina, you were his last Gymboree teacher. Although he didn't get much time in your class, I can see how easily he bonded with you. The last day in class, my heart was melting when you were doing story time and he was sitting on your lap and then he just randomly hugged you, and of course you reciprocated with a warm hug too. You know what he needs just by simply observing his body language... like when he is in denial that his bladder is about to pop. You simply would say, "Jaydon, you need to go potty".. and that was that!!! You have a special gift because you too are a mommy and that gives you advantage because, well moms know. Not all moms though. Only the super awesome moms!! Your boys are so blessed to have such an incredibly bright, patient and artistic mom. The Gymboree kids have a lot go gain by being in your class. Miss Gwen, Miss Jessica and the rest of Gymboree thank you so much for being here for our kids. We as parents want to create unforgettable childhood memories. Thank you for being such an important part of this journey. You shall never be forgotten.
