First day at Mother's Day Out

Filed under: Toddlers Preschoolers, Childcare

I know I should be scouring the Internet for fabulous finds and products, but I just dropped my precious boy at his first day of Mother's Day Out. Today marks the first time that he will be cared for by someone besides myself, my husband or our rarely-used babysitter. What does this mean for me? Three and a half hours of uninterrupted toddler-free time!

I'm sure I will grow to adore this little break once a week, but right now, all I can do is stare at the clock and wonder.
Is he having fun? Does he miss me? Will he eat all of his lunch? Is he being a good boy? Is he going to take a MONSTER POOP and stink up the entire classroom?

I'm sure he's having a great time, as he didn't even shed a tear as I left the room. (I, of course, can't say the same for myself.) Still, it's so hard to watch your little ones grow up. Tell me, what was your first "official" drop-off like? Did you cry?
