Well, the decision was made. I called Mrs. Shelly last Wednesday, had a great, comforting conversation then stopped by for a visit. Addison played with the other children, of course still keeping her eye on mommy. When it was time to go, Addison was not ready at all. I left her house last Wednesday knowing that this was a good decision. The best one I could make with our circumstances. Yes, I still would love to have that personal 'nanny'/ housekeeper, but this is reality and the job doesn't supply that kind of money... ha ha.
Anyway, today was her first day. I woke up early enough to stay with her for a little while to help with the transition. She cried for about ten minutes after I left, then was good to go. Mrs. Shelly said that she did much better than we both had expected. She played, napped, ate good for Mrs. Shelly and played some more.
Our first day was great!
Sorry, no great first day picture! Didn't think that through this morning.
Thank you Father for the comfort of today and the guidance and peace in the decision.

Suumer is Over

Well, today is a sad day for me, it is officially my last Summer day with Addison. I start back to work tomorrow, we have our faculty meeting in the morning and the children start coming on Friday. Lisa and I have already been in the classroom trying to get it all together and since we started this Addison has become EVEN MORE clingy than she already was. NO I am not ready for this next transition. Especially since we are still in the unknown of where or who Addi will be staying with. I know that's tomorrow but my options are slimming down and I just can't get settled with the idea of childcare and another option I might have. Will take Prayer and Suggestions!?!
