I Just Dropped My Almost 10months Old Son at His Day Care
It’s already been 3 hours and I’m no less anxious than 3 hours ago. Is it normal? I ask myself. Then again I answer what is actually normal? Is there any normalcy with babies. Because every child tends to have their own way of learning things.
I live one and a half hours away from his daycare centre. We have booked him in for 8 hours, which means I can easily go home and enjoy my first ever “Me” time after being pregnant. But I am still here. Just a few blocks away from my son. Just in case he needs me. Or I need him. I have a big interview coming up next week. I am supposed to prepare myself for that but instead I am here.
I don’t know how much my child is dealing with his separation anxiety for the first time but his mumma is not doing well. I hope to pass this few hours in hope that my baby gels in well with all those little fellows and gives me a big smile. So that I can hide my tears and smile back.
