1st Day of MDO

This face shows perfectly how our morning
went. Noah was a little grump. I mean, he was so
grumpy, he refused to eat his Flintstone vitamin
{something he would never do!}.

So, getting him to smile this morning before
heading to Mother's Day Out was not...

But all it took was a little car ride over to the church, because
once we arrived, Noah was a happy little guy. Stinker!

Headed to school...

Once we arrived, we got Noah checked in,
and headed on over to his classroom.

But he did not want to go to school.
My heart broke listening to his cries as I stood in the
hallway filling out paperwork. It was so hard leaving him.

I felt so bad..

But, I could see he was in good hands, and
I knew once he started playing, he would be okay.

And he was okay.
I came a little bit early to pick him up,
and as I was walking to his room, I met one of
his teachers in the hallway. She told me
how good Noah was the whole time, and that it
didn't take him long to calm down once I had left.

What a relief to hear her say that!

And guess what Mr. Noah was doing
when I looked in his room? He was laying
flat on his tummy taking a nap! There were
kids playing all over the room, and Noah was
sound asleep on his blanket. I couldn't believe it!

His teacher told me he laid down for a nap
without any problems and that she patted his back
for maybe a few minutes and he was out.
Poor guy was sleepy!

Overall, I think his first day of
Mother's Day Out was a success.

And my day, well, it was wonderful!
Of course, I missed my little man,
but it sure was nice to have some "me" time.
And I got so much accomplished-- it was great!

Yay for Mother's Day Out!

Glad to hear it was good for both of you. The girls went to a MDO for the past 2 years and loved it. It took Mara a few weeks to get use to, but after that she was running in the doors to go every week!

The first day is always the hardest, but you did great! It's always harder on the mom than the child.

It takes a little bit and then they are fine with it! Jo was great for the first 2 days and then got upset on days 3 & 4. This year she was sad for like 3 seconds when I dropped her off and then over it. They adapt so well.

Aww...yay for making it through the first day! I'm glad to hear all went well. That's amazing he was sleeping! That's my biggest worry with Ian. I haven't left him at the new place during nap time yet.

Awww! That is so sweet! I love the picture of him walking away from the camera. And that first picture is priceless! Haha! On Grace's first day at the sitter's house, her nor the other little girl were having there picture taken. They just kept running away from me! At least you got something to document his first day!
