First Day of School-"Mom's Day Out"

5 A.M. Wake Up Call
Mami has been stressing about this day for a week now and apparently for good reason, it was a very rough three hours for poor Nadia. First, Nadia was awake at 5 a.m. (we think she had another bad dream) so we brought her into our room but she never went back to sleep. When we got to the church, Nadia was pretty excited, but the fear quickly took over as the other children that were dropped off before her began to scream and cry. Nadia soon joined in as one of the teachers took her into the room. Immediately I found myself crying, which I knew would happen. When I returned to pick her up, all my fears had come true. Nadia was so upset that she vomited on her blankey, so it was taken away from her (the true source of comfort-even more than me) and she never truly bounced back the entire 3 hours! Now the stress I was feeling will linger on until my poor baby adjusts...I pray that sooner than later both Nadia and I will find comfort in going to Mom's Day Out.

Oh I am so sorry. I am sure she will adjust soon. Maybe you can bring two of her favorite blankets just incase she gets sick on one of them again. Or another toy that she really loves. Once she gets to know all the other kids she will love school! Keep staying strong!
