last monday, harrison had his first day of "school". we have enrolled him in a parent's day out program one day a week, from 9:00 to 1:00. he was so excited to be there, ran into the room, and immediately started playing with the toys. i kept telling him that "mommy was going to go bye-bye", which did not seem to phase him. that is, until i actually walked toward the door.
he cried. and i drove away wondering if i had done the right thing. but, upon picking him up, it turns out that he did GREAT. another mom even complimented how well (and how quickly) he calmed down after i left. he played well, interacted with the teachers and kids well, and he ate all his lunch. so, it was a good morning.
i picked him up at 12:15...knowing that he would need a nap before 1:00. and, of course, mother knows best. he was asleep before we got home. i got him out of his car seat, wiped his face and hands, changed his diaper, and put him down in his crib...and he never woke up!
