Little Lulu –
Almost 9 months to the day, you’re ending your daycare career. It breaks my heart to take you away from the teachers, students, and staff you’ve come to love. You’ve built a little life with these people, that I only get to glimpse. It’s your own private life where you’ve learned to laugh and play, make friends, trust adults, and grow into your big personality. I appreciate the love and admiration the teachers and students at the school have for you. It’s crazy to think that I cried the day you started and now I’m crying on your last day as well. But at the same time, I’m selfishly excited to spend my days with you, for the next 10 weeks.
In the words of Poppy, “we’ll sing and dance, and hug” but will I be enough? Will you like your new brother? Will you be bored because of the time I will need to devote to him? Will you miss the weekly art projects? What about the baby yoga? Does Miss J read the stories in cool voices that I just can’t match? Will you miss your friends who gave you friendly competition to lift your head a little higher, crawl a little faster, and stand and climb on everything?
I don’t know what the next 10 weeks will bring us, but I hope it doesn’t disappoint. I hope you will love it as much as you loved school. I hope we get to do all the fun things we did when it was just the two of us. Outings to the park, picking out books from the library, trips to Trader Joe’s and Target, and maybe even sneak in a visit to the zoo or a playdate or two.
Here’s to the next 10 weeks. I will cherish every day that I get to spend with you!
Lots of Love,
Hey Mom’s – Any advice on transitions? Have you ever had to take your child out of a healthy, loving environment, to try something new? How did it go? Were you creatively able to make daycare work for multiple babies? We’re getting a nanny, and I’ll tell you all about that soon, but right now, I’m still heartbroken to change my little girl’s world, when I know how much she loved her school.
