I did it! I actually dropped KB off at daycare today. WHY was that so much harder than I ever thought it would be??
Last night she loved it and her teacher. She didn’t want me to pick her up to leave. Today at drop off was a different story. I think all the kids being there was a little overwhelming for her; she didn’t want to leave my side.
Luckily, her friend Layla goes there too and kept bringing K toys and even gave her a hug.
I walked into the other room and and when I was out of sight she’d already stopped crying.
I was the opposite. The first step I took outside the tears started flowing. I won’t even sugar coat it. I was a straight mess all 4 hours. I’d like to pretend I was some brave hard ass, but I was actually the girl running errands inside stores still wearing sunglasses so no one could see my eyes. 😂
I’m usually pretty good at leaving K; however, it’s always been with family or close friends. Today was essentially leaving her in a new place with 10 strangers. Holy guilt trip!
Huge thanks to my AMAZING mom tribe that reached out today to check on me & remind me I was normal and that “we’ve all been there”! (…and for knowing me well enough to know I’ll totally pretend to be ok but you know I’m actually not. 😜)
Anyway, we BOTH survived the day and it came with some extra entertainment. Quick back story: she’s going to an at home daycare with a lady a few friends of ours use and they’ve known her forever. I was under strict orders to drop her off in her PJs (and you listen when a Spanish Grandma tells you that!) and when I picked her up, she was in clothes I didn’t pack for her, had never actually seen before, and her hair was redone in a perfect Spanish ponytail. 😂😂😂
Kensie already made new friends, ate a home cooked Spanish lunch and even took a nap!
Y’all, I was finding all the reasons to not take her today, but she didn’t let me. She slept until 7:15 this morning! (An hour later than usual). I’m glad I bit the bullet and got day 1 behind us!
She was the HAPPIEST little bug this afternoon!! We went from daycare to swim (perfect reason to pick her up early ;)) and from swim to the gym.
LOOK WHAT KB CAN DO!!!
Watching her swim lessons blows my mind. I know I always say this – but how do these little humans catch on to things so quickly?! 😯
Tomorrow I’m making KB stay home with me 🙈 but I think daycare round 2 will take place on Friday. Hopefully I can keep it together a little better this time. 😆
