More Success

I am so happy to report that Mara had a great day at daycare again on Wednesday! She cried a bit when I dropped her off, but apparently was fine soon after. She ate at all three meals (breakfast, lunch, snack) and had lot of fun playing. When I went to pick her up, she was playing outside. She saw me and smiled...and then just kept playing! I'm amazed at how well she is doing!

This morning when I dropped her off, I was ready for the usual tears. Instead, she started flapping her arms around when we got inside - her sign for being excited. I was a little surprised. We went to the toddler room, and she couldn't wait for me to put her down! She immediately took off to go grab a book, and didn't even notice me leave! Wow. It's only the 4th day! I couldn't believe it! They are having a water day today, so I'm sure Mara will love playing in the water tables outside!

I'm sure there will be some bumps along the way, but we are thrilled she has adjusted so well so far. Today is her last day there for the week (she will be home with Jay on Fridays). So Monday might be a challenge again, but at least we know that she enjoys her time there. She will probably be bored with just us over the weekend!

In other news, Jays classes are going well. He's been pretty busy all week since he's worked a couple evenings too. I've come down with a cold, so I'm not thrilled about that, and hoping it will not last too long!
