Nate ready to go on his first day of daycare!
He was smiling and talking to me the whole morning!
He sat at the table and was playing with the other kids as I was putting away his supplies. He was so cute! Then, another 'new to daycare' mom came in to leave her little girl. She was also a teacher and it was her child's first time to be in daycare as well. I had someone to bond with! I will admit that I did shed a few tears Monday and Tuesday, but they were minimal! Nate got a great note from his teacher and over the course of the week, I became a little more comfortable leaving him. It also helped knowing there was another mom right there in my shoes. We would chat in the mornings as we left the kiddos and the time away from him flew by. I missed him horribly while he was in daycare, but overall he seemed very happy.
My goal this year is to be as productive as possible during the school day so that I can leave as early as possible to go pick him up! I hate the fact that he's there for 9 - 9.5 hours a day, but I'm going to be sure and enjoy the time we do have together.
