Where Did My Baby Girl Go?

Today was my daughter's first day at daycare and I sure built up anxiety for her for no reason.  Seriously I missed the days when it was just mama and no one else.  We arrived at daycare and at first she was so clingy wondering where in the world we were going and then she saw the kids her age and immediately flew out of my arms forgetting that I was there.  I said goodbye to her and the kid didn't even flinch. Ok I thought she will miss me in a few hours...nooooo each time I called they told me how amazing my child was at adjusting, and how they've never seen this type of adjustment; and how friendly and playful she was; and how she is eating everything and she likes being read to (urghhh! I could have used a little well she fussed a little but was easily consoled).  I was glad though because I was able to focus at work, but at the back of my mind I wished the girl cried just a little ...she does that when I leave her with anyone else including her grandma.
Anyways, after work I rush over there and as soon as I got there she was so excited to see me, she was sitting so well behaved listening to her teachers before she noticed me.  Today's experience was definitely bitter sweet but mostly sweet. I'm so glad she likes her daycare, because it wasn't an easy decision. Boy! do they grow so fast.

Most times dropping babies off at daycare is more traumatic for mommy than for baby. Nice that she is adjusting well.

Gurl, that is a testament to how well she is loved and cared for that her confidence is ripe and she is alright.

She knows and is confident mama is there. So she's saying, "mama i got this, you go your thang, ama see yah lada!"

peace....
have a blessed day.

The growth is the blessing every mother wants to see in their child. I am happy that her growth brings joy to your heart.

Lol! I know exactly how you feel. That is why I am now determined the days before my daughter becomes a teenager and needs me even less. Great that she can get along without you but you would like to be needed.

They tend to grow so fast, right? Before you know it she'll be she'll be leaving the house off to college.
Time just seem to fly....

PS: Your baby is so adorable.
