I Think I Need A Good Cry

I set into motion today putting Adam into daycare.  Not full time, just two half days a week, but I still feel like its letting my baby go out into the wide world without me.  I am not sure I am ready for that.

I know it will be good for him.  And for me.  But it is still scary.

You hear so many scary stories about bad day care situations, never mind what the Catholic Church is up to.  I am a firm believe that the world isn’t any more dangerous than it was when I was a kid, we just hear about it more.  But its different when its your little baby.

I think I would be less wary of it if he was older.  He can’t communicate yet so leaving him in someone else’s hands is a true test of faith.  If they hurt him he won’t be able to tell me, you know?

But I will thoroughly investigate all options.  Do site visits.  Do surprise visits once we’ve chosen one.

And pray a bit.

  1. It sounds like you have a good plan. Plus I think he’s old enough that if he were being abused he’d cry every time you left him in a way that would be different than the cry just because he doesn’t want to leave you.

  2. I cried my eyes out the first time I left Jonah at his daycare. It is hard but I think you have an excellent hold on the process. Micah starts preschool this fall and I do not know what I will do with those 4 and a half free hours a week…. cry probably , at least the first day.
