First Full Week

Last week, everyone was surprised how well I handled myself on Thursday when Ben was at "playschool" and I was at work. I was even surprised that it was only for a little bit on Wednesday, that I had that "I'm going to lose it" moment.

Well, this morning was very different. I lost it. I took him into the classroom and almost took him right back out. I am getting all teary-eyed now just thinking about leaving him in that little swing. When I put him down, he just started looking up at me and smiling and was like he was saying, "What are we going to play next, Mom?" Unaware that I was leaving him.

Here come the tears AGAIN. Blah!

I can only imagine how hard that was. I don't even want to think about it when we have to do that as well. I know for Christina it is going to be extremely tough bc she bonds to loving things quickly and I don't even want to imagine how girly I am going to be when we get to that road!

dude. I have 5 weeks of maternity leave left and I'm already dreading leaving Anna at daycare. Ugh. I feel you.

well you can always do what i did and be a nanny so you can keep ben with you... but then there's the whole taking-care-of-someone-else's-kid thing that pretty much sucks and you still don't get to spend much time with your own kid... so i guess there's just no perfect way :(
