Daycare drama hard on momma

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Oh No! I broke my fabulous blogging streak. It’s ok – I know myself, and blogging everyday isn’t very doable for me. And it would be very good for you either. You’d start seeing blogs that say “HI!” or “Blah, blah, blah!” and let’s 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 today…

I just started O in a daycare. And to beat that – he’s 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 wasn’t going to torture me with hanging on my leg or crying to go to Grammy’s house… nothing. Easy peasy!

Wait a minute… 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

It’s 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 – why create a habit that will just have to be broken in a couple weeks. I did send a blanket for naptime, but it’s not blue. Maybe I should have left it in his cubby for emergency purposes.

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

Speaking of liquid breakfast, do you ever do things as an adult because you know “it’s good for you” but you really don’t like it? Seriously – 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 – and here we are doing it to ourselves. It’s different for everyone but here’s 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 you’ll get that nutrition. Did I mention that I do NOT like tomatoes? I’ll eat salsa, tomato soup, ketchup, chili, spaghetti sauce… pretty much ANYTHING made with tomatoes but I don’t like them just plain by themselves or on sandwiches. Yet I slap ‘em on there anyway!

And I’m sure I’ve mentioned the green tea thing. I LOATH that stuff! Eeeew! I hold my nose and drink it – because it’s good for me. Why? I’m striving to be a better and healthier me… and I do those things that the old fashion mom’s used to tell you to do (because it’s 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.
