Daycare Woes...

Murphy had such a hard time this morning, well every morning. He cries from the moment his socks go on because to him that signals that we are going to be leaving and headed to daycare. He cries for the ten minute car ride to daycare, calling for Dad because he is the "safe" one who never takes him to daycare, he only picks him up which makes M incredibly happy.

Most mornings I can just brush it off knowing that he calms down within minutes of me leaving (I know this is true becuase one morning I had forgotten to give something to my provider and walked back in and the was not a single cry to be heard), but this morning I cried on the way to work. I know, I know you are saying to yourself - why doesn't she just stay home with him? This is my dream and goal, it just isn't in the cards at the moment.

I know he does have fun, because each night we talk about what he did that day - played with toys, the kids at daycare (he knows them each by name) ate good food etc. etc. And he seems totally happy to talk about it.

Well there is a bright light - tommorow is Saturday and there is no daycare.

Just breaks my heart when they cry! I am SUPER happy that tomorrow is Saturday so that you can spend it with him!

I am so sorry, I know how hard it is to leave them when they cry. I wish I could stay home too. One day!!!
