Well, mom and I survived our first day at daycare, and let’s just say one of us did better than the other. Mom lingered a little bit while she dropped me off, but she eventually managed to leave the premises. I heard her come visit me over the lunch hour, but I pretended to be sleeping because it’s not cool to hang out with your mom when you’re trying to make new friends. She got the hint after a while, and reluctantly walked out the door. But 15 minutes later, she was back. Oh boy! (Just call me irresistible.) This time, I threw a blanket over my head so she couldn’t find me. I think it worked because she went back to her office and didn’t return until the end of the day. By 4:30 p.m. I was back in my mom’s arms, safe, unharmed and all in one piece! I greeted her with a smile and then we hugged for a moment, and just like that, all was right with the world. Hopefully she’ll remember that when we do this all over again tomorrow.
