a few things

nothing like starting your day off by torturing your 2 children. i had to leave both of them in their classrooms, screaming their heads off. with sadie, i know she's just adjusting still, but it's not getting better. i bring her special blanket and her special puppy, but she is inconsolable. i peeked at her through the window a couple minutes after i left her, and she was no longer screaming, just a soft-but-steady tear-less waaaaaah. with this distressed look on her face that just breaks my heart. even while she plays with the toys and toddles around the room. just unhappy.

and aidan, who was doing so well, has regressed too. probably about half the time, he was to the point where he would run in to the room and forget to even kiss me goodbye. and now i have to practically push him into the room, and when i leave he throws himself on the ground and wails. he eventually stops, the teacher is telling me, but it still is hard on me to watch.

did i make the wrong decision to have them in daycare? were we tons better off with cha cha watching them at home? which is better - them at home with cha cha but spoiled to death, or them in daycare interacting w/other kids but unhappy?

    Oh honey. That's so hard. I have no idea what to tell you. But I will pray it gets better quickly.

    I realize I have no children, but I believe that the socialization will be to their benefit. Parents get the tough decisions.
