kate's first day of school (a.k.a. daycare) - august 4, 2008

Kate's first day of daycare was a bittersweet day. Kate did a great job... she made new friends, took a nap, and had a bottle. She did not cry and seemed to be enjoying her new environment. I, on the other hand, was a mess. I had thought my years of experience in daycare centers would help put my mind at ease and keep my emotions in check. I guess the bond between a mother and daughter is stronger than years of experience and knowledge. I was sick to my stomach, had a horrible headache, and was fighting the tears as I walked into the center (I had actually been fighting tears for weeks... every time I thought about it I would get teary eyed.) And of course I cried for about an hour after I had left the center. Needless to say I was so thrilled to pick her up four hours later... I felt I could not get there fast enough! Both Eric and I were so relieved and thankful that her first day was a success... that's when logic kicked back in and we knew we made a great choice in childcare for Kate.
