Today was my first day at work, and Monkey’s first full day at daycare. I did get off earlier than expected and was able to pick her up an hour early. She didn’t want to let go of our daycare provider! She didn’t reach for me. When I finally took her, she wouldn’t even look at me. I couldn’t get a smile out of her until we got to SuperD’s school to pick him up. She finally thawed out after we spent a good 30 minutes snuggling and playing at home. Then I rocked her to sleep tonight, which I know isn’t great, but I just didn’t want to put her down!
SuperD is doing very well at his full day “summer school.” His teacher must have excelling classroom management skills, or else he’s still in the honeymoon period. I am impressed every time I pick him up with how well the kids are all behaving.
Tonight, SuperD told me, “I missed you a long, long time ago when I lived with my dad.” Of course we didn’t know each other then, but still…Break. My. Heart. I'm hoping my new work distraction will help the time between now and court (3 weeks for SuperD, 2 months for Monkey) go more quickly. Right now, time is dragging.
