Picked him up and now he's fast asleep! I really do love Warren...everyone is so sweet and he's very well taken care of! Please remind me that I said this on Monday...It would seem that my psyche is better off taking him to daycare because it reminds me of what a great place it is. I'm not 100% convinced that daycare is what I want for him long-term (but I also don't have any other option right now). But, as far as daycares/preschools go, Warren is top-notch!
We got up this morning bright and early...seriously, I am SO not looking forward to doing that everyday again. Ugh! Anyway, I got up about 5:50 and started to get ready. My goal was to have him at daycare by 7am. It was a test run for the days that I'll drop him off in the morning. Unfortunately, We got there about 7:20. I was kind of shocked! There's really not much else I could cut out of the morning routine. All that's left is to wake up even early...good thing we did the practice run!
When we got there, it was just him and one other baby. Looks like he'll get lots of personal attention from 7-8/8:30 when most of the rest of the infant room gets there. According to his daily sheet, he was there 5 hours and was barely awake for 2 of them. I'm amazed at how much better he naps there than he does at home! When I picked him up around 12:30, he was mid-nap...again! I'm glad he sleeps better there, and I'm glad they're stimulating him enough to tire him out so much!
When I went to pick him up, most of the babies, including him, were asleep. Just a couple were awake and they were getting one-on-one time with one of the teachers over at the floor mirror. They helped me pack his stuff up and get him in his carseat without waking him up. When I was there on Tuesday, I watched the wipe away one of the baby's tears with a tissue. That just struck me as going the extra mile.
So, all in all, I just feel really good about Warren. This all brings me back to that post from a few days ago where I realized that it's the fear of missing things that's my problem. That's still very true. But, at least I feel better today....just going to have to take it one day at a time for awhile!
