My mom had told me about a week ago that she wouldn't be able to watch Lexi this week...and my sister, who is a teacher, couldn't watch her today, but can the rest of the week. So I had a predicament...solved by my company's backup childcare plan. We get 20 days a year...10 are free and 10 are $15. It's at a Bright Horiz0ns location...so I signed her up.
I was nervous walking her over there...this is the first time that she is with people she doesn't know. I thought for sure there would be tears. When we walked in, I took Lexi to the "infant/toddler" classroom and she was off. There were 2 kids there already and they expected 2 more for the day (5 kids total)...but all the new TOYS. O.M.G. She must have thought she was in heaven. I honestly don't even think she realized I left. She was too busy investigating all the new things.
I hope the rest of her day is as enjoyable for her...I might stop over there at lunch to "peek" in on her. I don't want her to see me (think that would make it harder to leave) but would like to see how she interacts with the new environment.
Now I just have to quell my tears and know that she's being taken good care of.
