But from the moment we walked through the daycare door, we became part of a family. It became SO much more than a daycare to us. She learned so much, made great friends and was truely LOVED. It was so much easier to go to my job knowing that she was in a warm and loving environment. For this, I am eternally grateful.
At pick up, I cleaned out her cubby, hugged her teachers and began to cry. As we walked down the cement path towards my car, it was I that was nervous and scared because I knew Lily’s whole little world would change and we would have to get used to trusting someone else with our child. As if from instinct, Lily grabbed my hand and started skipping as if to tell me that she was ready for the change. “C’mon, Mommy, I’m ready to gooooo!” she said.
I thought, “Can we just walk a little slower today? This is going way too fast.”
Look out Pre-K….here we come!
