We survived our first day of daycare.
I say we because it was really a question more of me making it through than Henry. To add to my professionalism, I cried through the whole staff meeting that day and get to experience the joy of milking myself at work (aka pumping). Everyone at work seemed to understand and were very supportive.
I had a night meeting that night, so I had a good excuse to go pick him up early. When I got there, he was taking a nap and I got to hear from his teacher what a great day he had.
He discovered his tongue, took the bottle, loved playing outside, smiled whenever the other babies were around him, laughed at his teachers, and did great in his crib with the crib mobile.
Basically, he rocked daycare. And that made me feel SO MUCH better.
I was pretty excited to have him back with me at the office Thursday and Friday. Can you blame me? Look at this guy...
Did you notice his shirt? Totally appropriate for an engineering office.
On another cute note... David was asked what his favorite part of kindergarten was and he answered that he got to see Henry every day. Melt my heart.
Today is his second day there (he goes Monday thru Wednesday only for now) and when I dropped him off, he smiled and laughed at his teachers. I unpacked his stuff, gave him a hug, and went to my car. And I managed to do the whole thing without crying.
There was another mom there this morning and it was obviously he first day dropping off her baby. Her baby was TINY. I'm guessing 8 weeks old. I wanted to run up to her and give her a big hug, but I didn't. I thought that might be a little weird.
I'm pretty much willing the time to go by today so I can go pick him up. I just hope the little guy is prepared for all the kissing and hugging that he is going to be showered with tonight.
