I didn't go to work today, 'cause I am still sick. Ugh. But I did take Lil M to daycare for the first time in a week and a half! She seemed to do ok with it... she was there for 5-6 hours. She got home, had dinner, had her bottle... I put her in bed. She cried. :( And normally, when this happens, she doesn't cry but for 2 minutes or less and she's fine. So, I let her be for a few minutes. She seemed to fall asleep. Ok then. Or not.
About 45 minutes later, she woke up fully and would NOT go back to sleep. I tried to get her to sleep by holding her in her room. She dozed off, and then woke right up when I put her in her crib. Oh no. So, I tried telling her it was sleeping time and to lay down and sleep. She went ape-sh*t. She stood up and cried and wailed. Then she made herself so upset she threw up. Oh no.
So, when I went in the 3rd time (all in about 10 minutes), I changed her clothes and brought her downstairs and held her. We normally have 20-30 minutes of Mama hugs/holding most every day. Not every single day, but most of the time... So, apparently, she needed to fall asleep with me tonight. At 10:30pm. Holy mackerel. I hope she does better tomorrow and this doesn't mess her up too much.
They are also moving her to the next room up at daycare. Which means, another change. And I know she's been happy having Mama home for quite a few days. Next week is going to suck.
Anyway, I am also glad I have had the extra time with her. I knew going back to daycare was going to be a bit tough for a few days. Which is why I wanted to take her back part-time this week. I'm hoping she will do better next week, but I have my doubts, obviously. Have a good night.
