Bold move?

Ok, I did it....

I enrolled Lanie in a local church pre-school! It was hard. They let her sit in the class room while I looked around and she didn't even miss me! She didn't even blink twice. There she was being all perfect and quiet for these strangers. She listened to every word they said! Argh. That's all I have to say about that.

No, I have more.... How could she?! She doesn't listen to me all day long unless there is something in it for her. I usually stay away from bribery but there are some days like when we're going out and she HAS to have a nap otherwise she'll be too cranky to behave and I'll say "We can't go do unless you take a nap." How could she not even care that she'll be left there without me? Okay, okay... it's 3 days a week for 2.5 hours but tomorrow will be the first time that I will leave my baby somewhere and have to drive away without her. Jena has class tomorrow too for 2 hours. So BOTH of my babies. Jena will miss me-- she's going to cry and scream, etc. Lanie... probably won't even remember who I am until I pick her little butt up.

Oddly enough... Lanie is napping right now. And I didn't even have to yell at her to get her to take a nap. Let's hope that this is what she needs to help her through her days. She's actually been asking to go to school for a long time now. Jena, I'm trying her there for a month to see if she adjusts to now having me around. She never did get used to the gym so, we'll see I guess. I better take some tissue with me tomorrow because I will cry my eyes out when I leave.

Awww they do grow fast don't they? My oldest never missed me but my youngest was a real clingy one - both made me shed tears...

It's tough, isn't it? I know it was for me. Luckily, we still have a child at home that needs us.
