    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "You were both so amazing when I first enrolled Mickey at 10 months old. You were so great with the transition. He flourished in your room and began to walk, talk, and appreciat books. Cindy- you were his second mother. I know you spent many hours holding him (and he was a giant baby). Thank you xoxo"
