start of a new era

~a new chapter.

~E starts daycare today.

~I'm 'ok' with it for the most part.

~O is another story.

~I know E will love it after the adjustment period has passed.

~I also know that he will cry today after he realizes I'm not there.

~I hate that.

~Well, got to get ready to go now....

It will be okay! Remember, everything happens for a reason.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it is a great day for you and E.

How exciting! It's amazing how quickly they grow up.

Don't worry - by the end of the week, he won't even give you a hug goodbye and in about 5 years, he won't even acknowledge your existence in front of his friends, but will still be willing to cuddle with you at night. Am I making you feel any better?

That's the worst...when they start crying before you even leave. But next thing you know, he'll be more excited to see his friends at the daycare than anything else. Good luck with the adjustment period!

My little guy started daycare/preschool about a year ago. It was THE HARDEST thing for me to do, especially after the newness wore off and he cried and cried everytime I dropped him off.

I am happy to report, now he LOVES it and it was the best thing I ever did for him. He is soooo much further advanced then my older son was at that age. Such and adjustment for you both but you'll get through it!

They do cry, especially at this age (even the ones who have been in daycare since 6 weeks in the same center with the same people), and I know it's hard, but I can also tell you that I never had a single kiddo that didn't adjust & not only love school, but THRIVE. One day, before you know it, he will get to school & get so excited to see one of his little friends that your heart will darn near burst. They all get there. (((HUGS)))
