Daycare Transition: Day 3

Not to jinx things, but so far, so good.  My son's been really brave in the mornings, with only a quivering lower lip to indicate he's unhappy about my leaving for work and  dropping him off at the daycare for the day. 

By the time I arrive to pick him up in the afternoon, everything is great.  Today he didn't even want to leave. 
"Come mommy, come play with me" he said over his shoulder as he trotted back to the carpet to continue what he was doing before I arrived.  I got him to leave by promising that we could return to the daycare tomorrow! 

As for the food, he's enjoyed chicken, rice and vegetables, and even some gluten free bread as part of his daily delivered lunch.  We're still providing his snacks from home.  Fingers crossed that this continues to work.

The only thing we need to do now is provide separate paint, modeling clay, and glue.  The centre makes their own clay and glue using flour, and the paint also includes wheat ingredients.  Since I want him to participate in all the activities, I'll be buying some alternatives this weekend and bringing them in for Monday. 

This has really made my transition to work much less stressful than I had anticipated.  I only hope that this isn't the calm before the storm...
