The verdict

Since I have no bulletin boards, filing cabinets, or materials yet, my visit to school didn't take nearly as long as I anticipated. So I got back to daycare a little before 11 this morning.

I went in and watched him through the window. He was playing with some toys, all the while carrying around his "Grammi blanket." I went in, and he started to cry as soon as I caught his eye. Awww, poor guy.

His teacher exclaimed, "He's barely cried at all!" Other than the times I was there, he only cried once--when another kid started to cry. She said he did really well, enjoyed his breakfast, and did great all around. He didn't, however, take his morning nap, despite his teacher's trying to get him down. As you might imagine, the second we got into the car, A was down for the count (so much so that he didn't wake until he was halfway out of the car).

A's teacher asked if I'd be bringing him back in during the week, and I said I wasn't sure since he did so well, maybe we didn't need the extra time. She agreed that he did so well that maybe it won't be a problem at all. I'm a little concerned, however, with how he will do there ALL DAY. I'm not completely sure if I'll be able to leave him there all day for a trial, but I think he'll do fine. he really seemed ot be enjoying himself while he was there, and as long as she can get him to take a nap, it will certainly be fine.

I'm so glad it went well! Yay! It will get easier, I promise!

I'm gearing up to leave the boys for FOUR days when baby girl is coming. So sad. They will visit but I haven't been away from them for longer than 9 hours so...well, you know how it goes.
