This girl went with me to drop big brother off at school…
But, instead of coming back home with me, she got to stay.
Not a tear was shed, by her or me. Her reaction seemed to scream to me, “Finally! I get to stay and play at the place with all the kids!”
“And all the TOYS!”
“Don’t worry, mom. I’m good. See you at 2!”
So, without any hesitation at all, I left my baby in the competent care of two amazingly sweet teachers, stopped by the grocery store on my way home for more coffee creamer, and came home to a silent house with many grand ideas of what I will accomplish today.
Confident children are such a blessing. I followed her cues and trusted her joy. It’s not hard to leave your baby somewhere when she embraces it and sets out to conquer it the second she gets through the door. Now… we’ll just see how she acts when I pick her up. I wonder if it will be at all like her brother’s first day?
Leyna is just about 15 months old and I’m now looking for a MDO program for my freaking DOGS who do not understand that I only have 5 hours of peace that I must cherish, and they are ruining it with their incessant dog demands.
