Doesn't that sound like a children's book title?!?! Well, actually she is going to Mother's Day Out! We tell her she is going to school so that she does not think that her mommy does not want to spend the day with her!
Here is my big girl before we were off to school!
In all honesty, I have been really torn about what to do. Send her to MDO or keep her home?!?! It boils down to mommy needing one day a week to get some things done. I think it will make me a better mom to her and I think I will value my time with her more. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE LOVE LOVE being at home everyday with my girl. Believe me, I thank God everyday for the opportunity. But with daddy's work schedule and Cilla's lack of napping, mommy needs a few hours a week to herself. A day I can once again feel efficient with my time. Possibly to shower for as long as I would like and not worry about what she doing. To sit down at the computer to get some work done. To not have to feed a hungry little mouth every three hours! So hopefully, I will get lots done on Tuesdays and we can have much more Cilla and mommy fun time the rest of the week! In the mean time, our little social butterfly gets to make some new friends and be in a different environment for one day a week. I think it is going to be a good thing for everyone!!!
AND on a fun note: I dropped Cilla off at school and on my way back out to my car a gal stops me (I still have my Razorback Alum tags on my car!) and asks me if I am from Arkansas. Turns out I AM and she is, too! We went to the same high school and we grew up in the same neighborhood! We were just a couple of years apart in school!!! Turns out we had tons of mutual friends. How bizarre, but fun! Thank you, Lord, for small coincidences that brighten our days!!!
