Ok, so I bawled my eyes out this morning when I dropped Cait off. I cried again when I told Rob about it. And again when I picked her up and heard she had a rough day.
But I really like being back at work.
Jill is doing great, she is a daycare superstar. She started with full days and loves it. She asked me today if I would pick her up a bit later then yesterday so she wouldn't miss free play and snack. She has even made a new friend.
I don't worry about how Jill is doing.
I worry about Cait though.
Through the worry and pride I really like being back at work.
I like organizing the paperwork and labelling the books. I like sorting the toys and setting up the centres. I like talking with my colleagues.
I have been doing a lot of that last one!
I know that Cait will settle in. I know that Jill might have some rough patches.
Same for me.
Ask me again next week if I still like being back. I have only gone 2 days, I think I might still be in the honeymoon phase!
