Shiloh goes to daycare...

After dropping Dakota off at school, I took Shiloh to daycare. She cried of course when I left but I made it to work without tears. I worked for a while, went to the eye doc and worked a little more. I called to check on her and the director told me that she cried for about twenty minutes but was holding the teachers hand and doing OK. She evidently tried to leave her classroom any time the teacher put her down. The director told me that she stopped her 6 times and finally Shiloh gave up. I picked her up after nap time and they were outside playing. When she saw me she immediately burst into tears and cried for 2 minutes or so. I guess she was relieved that I did come back. She shakes her head "no" about going back tomorrow. We'll see how it goes. It is so hard to do this and not be upset but this is our life and she has to get use to it. I have to work. No choice there, but I also know she will learn a lot and I have missed work. So for this three weeks we will do a few days a week and see how it goes. Our time home will be up soon enough and then our life will be back to "normal".

Kim, it's interesting to hear you share your story. I am a preschool director and know that they are always fine...it's harder on the parents. However, I'm so worried for my own little one. It makes me nervous thinking about all of the transition she's going to endure. If I'm the voice of reason for everyone else, who is the voice of reason for me???

She will be great though. Bring in some family pictures for her to hold. The children tend to cry at drop-off and then again at pick-up. Most parents normally think that means they've cried all day in between. You got it right though! She must have been SO relieved to see you!!! (((HUGS)))

As hard as it is Kim, it's good for Shiloh to see that you always come back and pick her up! She'll get used to it quicker than you think, I bet!

So cute about Shiloh kissing Luke's pics!

I'll try to call you later this week!
