A giant step.....


Today was monumental for me. Bailey went to an actual daycare for the first time today. I have pics, but don't know how to post yet. Yes, I am a dork taking pictures on her first day. She did awesome! No tears, no screaming, no kicking! She walked in and went straight to the other kids. She is so much more social than her dad and I. I was pleased. She told me that she would see me later and that was it, so I left. Then the tears came - not from her, but me. I can't believe how grown up she is becoming. I felt so empty leaving her :-( I am sure you are thinking that I went on to work and continued my day with never a thought more - WRONG!! I am the secret neurotic mother that calls. Yes, I called to check on her midway through the day. She was fine, of course. As the school day ended, I bounded for the door to pick up my sweet baby girl. I got there and she was excited to see me. No bumps, bruises, cuts or scratches. She was just the same way I left her (just a tad dirtier and sweatier). What a relief. They said it was like she had been there everyday. She fit right in. Thank the Lord for answering my prayers!! God is good!

I know how you feel. I started working part time and miss Skylar. She stays with my mom but I miss her anyway. 20 hours a week seems like a long to me.
