Today was Misty's first day back to work, and as such, it was also Emily's first day at Kinder Care. Misty has been dreading "abandoning" her baby, so I took her instead. Since I'm off Tuesdays and Wednesdays I could have kept her at home, but we figured it would be easier on Misty if she had a couple days to get used to the idea of leaving the baby with strangers, without having to be the one to actually drop her off at the day care.
Everything went fine, of course. Emily has been taking bottles without much trouble for the past few days, so I was not surprised to hear that the child care professionals were able to get her to take them. They sent her home with a little paper detailing her day. Emily reportedly made friends with Carson, Emmie, and Brittany; she got to enjoy singing, storytime, and floor play; and
she was happiest when being cuddled and in the swing.
