Today is Carter’s first day at day care. I feel pretty good about it. When I dropped him off the teachers were all really nice and asked me a lot of questions about him and his routine etc. I was pretty calm about the whole thing except that I kept looking over at him and saying “bye buddy!” so they probably thought I was slightly nuts, but I’m sure they’ve seen worse! But, when I left I couldn’t help but let the whats ifs run through my head!
What if he cries and they don’t go check on him and he cries for 30 minutes?
What if he wakes up in that new place with people he doesn’t know and gets scared?
What if the other kids are mean to him and hit him or throw a toy at him and he gets hurt?
What if they mix up the bottles and give him the wrong formula?
What if, what if, what if! I’m sure none of these things will happen and he will be perfectly fine but it’s easy to let the what ifs run through your head and drive you crazy!
|Carter’s first day! He was stretching when we took the picture so he looks all scrunched up. I had him in his cute tie outfit for his first day, but then he spit up on it and such so we had to change it!|
