The staff at the Y are wonderful! The thing I like best is that everyone is always quick to smile and say hello. It really makes me feel at home. I love that they all seem to know my kids and I. I’ve had many wonderful experiences with the Y staff. Some that stand out are: when it was pouring rain my son was in an infant carrier and I had my 3-year-old with me, and one of the staff offered to help me out to the car with my kids. Another time, Deb searched high and low for my daughter’s doll’s shoe even after we left and found it. The most special relationship I have though began to develop when my son was an infant. Terri in child watch was the only one that seemed to be able to soothe him. At the time we didn’t realize all of his cries were due to a painful infection. We just thought we had a fussy baby. I was at my wit’s end at home and to be given some “me time” at the Y was a saving grace. Terris continues to be my son’s favorite. Also during this rough patch, Michelle rocked him in his stroller for an hour to keep him sleeping while I took my daughter to swim lessons.
