Farewell to Our Daycare Family

Friday, August 29tchange aheadh marked the end of an era. It was our last day at our beloved daycare.  We had been there since my sweet Munch was just three months old.  The teachers, the directors, and the other families had become our family.  I know that those friendships and those teachers have shaped my daughters’ lives in ways that I am just beginning to understand.  Those amazing women took care of my babies, and we were leaving our nest to spread our wings at elementary school.  The education that the girls received was phenomenal.  Our decision to have both girls at elementary school together was two-fold: time and money.  We saved a bit on daycare costs by having both girls in the same childcare.  We only have one pick up and one drop off now!  That has given my husband, myself, and our girls at least a half hour back to our hectic days.  It was so bittersweet to leave our daycare behind.  I cried when I picked up the girls for the last time.  Like so many moments of their childhood, my sense of loss overwhelmed me.  God bless our amazing teachers!  We will be back to visit!

    Well-said . . . it’s a transition that I’m not fully looking forward to. Next year, I know, is going to be hard (CJ will be in kindergarten, Leila will continue preschool)

    • Last year was really tough John with my oldest being in kindergarten. This year’s transition caught me unaware since my littlest is in the same school. It’s just that they’re in elementary school together. It really hit home that they are independent and not my cuddly babies anymore.
