First Daycare Drop-Off
It’s almost funny thinking back to how our house used to be this quite every single day. When we bought this house, before we faced the prospect of not having children and before we lived through recurrent pregnancy loss, we always dreamed of having our house filled with all things baby. Then Baby MPB actually arrived and our house always has the sounds and even smells of a baby. Really, our house has filled with been baby activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for a long time now.
But today, it’s different. We just returned home from dropping Baby MPB off at daycare for the first time. We hung out and watched him play for a few minutes, then we left. And now, I’m just hoping he has a good day and his first nap at daycare isn’t going to traumatize him for life (said only half joking).
We are back home now. The house is stunningly quiet. In fact, it’s eerily quite. I don’t know the last time I was at home by myself, probably before Baby MPB was born. Even the dog, who doesn’t particularly love Baby MPB, seems a bit sad today. Maybe even a bit lonely?
With today being Baby MPB’s second daycare transition day, and hopefully his first full day at daycare, I am expecting this to be a difficult day.
I fully expect that I’ll be the one struggling today, not Baby MPB. He did so well on his first visit, that I’m optimistic that my laid back little boy will mostly take today in stride. Me on the other hand, no so much! My plan for today is to keep myself busy!! First and foremost, I will be keeping my cell phone right next to me all day long just incase the daycare calls. But I have also planned a distracted day to keep me sane – I have an important deadline to keep me focused on some work, then I’m having lunch with a friend and getting my hair cut. All the while, I’ll be counting down the minutes until I can go pick up Baby MPB!!
