Daycare is going so well now. Jack is firmly settled in and each morning when we drop him off he dashes out of our arms to play with the other kids. He no longer even says goodbye! Two days ago we got an opportunity to observe everyone on their way to the park and Jack’s face was totally lit up. It was so wonderful to see.
Of course I feel a little twinge when he completely forgets about me the moment the providers open their front door, but mostly I am just thrilled that we have found such wonderful people to care for our son while we’re at work. He is clearly thriving and this transition has really shown me that my feelings about the previous daycare were spot on. This experience has taught me that I *do* have instincts. Thank goodness I listened to them!
And even though he doesn’t say goodbye, he is always ecstatic to see us when we pick him up. 🙂
