I cannot believe it. My kiddos are at a real daycare for the majority of the day today, and 3 days a week from here on out. *sniff, sniff*. I have lots of mixed emotions. I will miss them today, but I am very, very thankful for time to myself (even if I do plan to work all day). It will be quiet here and I can even have a kitty snuggle on my lap while I type! Amazing. I don't think I will turn on the radio or go anywhere all day.
The kids did great when I dropped them off. They joined the others at the table for fruit and breakfast burritos (oh yeah daycare also means 3 days a week with me not fixing or packing breakfast, snacks, and lunch-sounds small, its huge). Charlotte has been well prepared for today because I could explain everything to her and how her day would go there. Timothy is a bit less prepared, and although we did visit and play last week, I think it may be rough for him today. There was no crying when I left, but I am sure once he realized I was gone there were some tears. But,I know they are going to be fine, right, right???
Why the sudden change to daycare, you ask?? Well, Reid and I are trying to buy a house. Which means I need to make more money, and I am ready! Ready for some adult time, some job time, some time for me to fulfill a purpose outside of motherhood for about 30 hours a week. More on all of this as we progress.
