Daycare drama hard on momma

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Oh No! I broke my fabulous blogging streak. Itís ok Ė I know myself, and blogging everyday isnít very doable for me. And it would be very good for you either. Youíd start seeing blogs that say ďHI!Ē or ďBlah, blah, blah!Ē and letís face it. That would be productive for me to write or for you to read!

But I do have some things that are blog worthy todayÖ

I just started O in a daycare. And to beat that Ė heís going full time. He went from private babysitter who has been with him since he was 5 weeks old, to a daycare! Scary! (For me anyway)

This morning, he walks in starts playing and talking and gives me a hug and a kiss and that was that. I was free to go, and he wasnít going to torture me with hanging on my leg or crying to go to Grammyís houseÖ nothing. Easy peasy!

Wait a minuteÖ did he just start the 2 year old room at daycare or did I just send him off to college? Is it supposed to be that easy!?! *notcomplaining

Itís definitely harder on me than on him. I just hope that he can make it through nap time without his blankie, Blue. They said it was ok to bring it for a while until he got comfortable, and it was in the car (just in case), but I figured he was starting off so well Ė why create a habit that will just have to be broken in a couple weeks. I did send a blanket for naptime, but itís not blue. Maybe I should have left it in his cubby for emergency purposes.

I almost stopped at Hardeeís for a big olí bacon, egg & cheese biscuit to reward myself for not crying when I left Ė but thatís one of the big things Iím trying to get past: rewarding myself with a binge. Hello! That doesnít help anyone! Of course, now that Iím drinking my breakfast Ė Iím thinking that biscuit sounds a lot better. Iím definitely going to have to get some things in stock at my desk. Liquid breakfast isnít very tasty, even if it is filling itís just not satisfying and thatís just as important.

Speaking of liquid breakfast, do you ever do things as an adult because you know ďitís good for youĒ but you really donít like it? Seriously Ė as a kid, we would be laying in the floor having a tantrum if our parents tried to make us do some of this stuff Ė and here we are doing it to ourselves. Itís different for everyone but hereís me: I put tomatoes on my sandwiches (subway, burgers, etc) because I once read that even if you are eating a burger to load it down with veggies and at least youíll get that nutrition. Did I mention that I do NOT like tomatoes? Iíll eat salsa, tomato soup, ketchup, chili, spaghetti sauceÖ pretty much ANYTHING made with tomatoes but I donít like them just plain by themselves or on sandwiches. Yet I slap Ďem on there anyway!

And Iím sure Iíve mentioned the green tea thing. I LOATH that stuff! Eeeew! I hold my nose and drink it Ė because itís good for me. Why? Iím striving to be a better and healthier meÖ and I do those things that the old fashion momís used to tell you to do (because itís good for you!)

    I get the daycare drama. We've had ours in since 8 weeks (he's 4 months now) and at first it was rough, but now it's much better. I just remind myself I'm paying someone else to wipe his butt. We use a corporate childcare center (Kindercare) and the teachers are all very professional. No worries about the kids calling them mama on accident. (I was tortured by this thought before) Also, I thought that a diet wouldn't work if I didn't like doing it, that's why I stay away from the slimfast and yogurt. I'll eat it if I have to, but there are so many other healthy choices out there, it's not necessary to torture myself. Life's too short to do things you hate.
