I can’t believe this day has arrived. Baby O’s first day at daycare! This moment is bitter sweet. I remember experiencing the exact same thing with Princess just a few years ago. Having one child in daycare is nothing like having two.
My hubby and I spent the entire weekend preparing everything. We also had a chat with big sis to get her ready for the change. Rather than running around like two chickens with our heads cut off, we made a list of things to do and things to bring.
We also got everything in place before hitting the sack the night before, to minimize the chaos. It was much easier for my hubby to drop Princess off in the morning, while Baby O and I traveled together in the afternoon. I’m not at the point where I want him to be there all day. I did the same with big sis just a few years back, and it worked out better for all of us.
Here’s a quick video of how everything went:
Baby O had no problem settling into his class.
I also poked my head into Princess’s classroom during nap time and gave her a kiss.
The mama in me had to call later in the day to check in to see how Baby O was doing. The teacher said he fit right in. Grandma and Daddy also said that picking up the two was a snap. I’m so glad everything went well.
