I Can't Be Wordless Today...

Normally I would put up a Wordless Wednesday post since it's Tuesday night. But, I just can't be wordless today. I am posting this photo (taken by one of the teachers after she woke from her nap) of my baby girl who started daycare today. She did well. Of course she did do a bit of crying, and so did her mommy. But, when I picked her up she was playing and smiling! She saw me and did not cry, but came to me and waved and then turned to wave at her teacher. She was happy and playful all afternoon. I was worried that she'd be clingy and cranky tonight, but she was exactly the opposite. This might end up being easier (on her) than I thought it would be. As for me...well, I'm still adjusting. If it were not for the wonderful staff at her daycare, I don't know what I would've done today. Those girls are the greatest. They kept me sane today. Thanks so much to Jennifer for the pictures and FB updates. ya girl!

Aww, look how big she's getting! And she's adorable. I'm glad that the first day went well and that you've found a daycare that you love. :)

I was secretary at a child development center (run by the Co office of Ed). It was heart-breaking to see the young moms dropping off their little ones, especially if it was their first baby. I answered a lot of phone calls from moms calling to make certain all was well. And you're right, in most instances it was mom who was hit the hardest. But our staff, and I'm sure it goes for you, too, know just what to do to make it a lot easier.
Rest well, knowing she's in great hands. You'll all be fine...
