We finally found a daycare. Hubbs and I knew from the get go she was the real deal (only after searching and visiting many hell holes and meeting all kinds of weirdos. that was a fun experience). I checked her license and she has no complaints on her record. Although I don't go back to work until the second week in March, we decided it would be a good idea for Sonya to go a couple times before she starts full time, that way she is used to a new place.
Hubbs made me select a day this week and today was the day she went. I dropped her off around 10:30 a.m. and picked her up at 2:30 p.m. I ran numerous errands while she was there to keep my mind off the fact that she was there. I know it would of been harder if I was just at home doing chores. Dropped things off at Goodwill, went to the bank, went to a baby boutique downtown, got a pedicure and had a doctor's appt.
When I picked her up she was totally mellow and did not cry at all on the way home. She has been in a really good mood since so I feel better about her going to daycare. I know it is hard the first few times, or maybe it never gets easier. Once I am back at work she will be going three days a week. The other days she will be home with me. My boss is letting me have a flexible schedule which entails me working from home two days. I am really happy about the arrangement.
Umm... off the subject, but how stunning did Michelle Obama look yesterday in not only that yellow-green outfit but also the white gown? Seriously, that lady is chic.
Here is a pic of my little pumpkin grinning for her mommy!
