Here’s a post I put on another WordPress site, which I share with my mommy friends, called The Playdate Mommies… This isn’t really an update on my daycare situation; just more about my conflicted feelings.
And don’t worry. I keep my “divisive” feelings to myself. When I pick him up at daycare, I don’t get all weepy, such as “oh, my poor baby, don’t worry, mommy is here now!” That would just make me sick. Instead, we make mornings, evenings and weekends as special and happy as possible. In front of Alex, I remain genuinely positive, knowing that I’ll get used to it, one day at a time.
One interesting note in regards to breastfeeding: I thought that booby-time would be over, but I was wrong. My little one just adapted and continues to feed whenever we can, snuggling in the morning and co-sleeping at night. As he’s already caught a cold the first week in daycare, and roseola just last week, breastfeeding has been life-saver. He gets all the comfort that he needs and some good nutrition even though he’s lost his appetite.
