We did it!

Today I decided to leave Ryleigh in the nursery at MOPS. I went in early and checked it out. Met with the caregiver and left Ryleigh in her hands. I think thats one of the hardest things Ive done. I didnt HAVE to, but I knew if I kept her with me she would be disruptive and fussy sitting at a table with nothing for her to do. I checked on her ever 15-20 min (maybe more)....lol. Every time she was fine and playing with a different toy. She played off by herself, which was fine with me. The kids range in age from 6 weeks to 18 months in there. That makes me a bit nervous considering they start the biting phase soon. Today there were 4 kids total and Ryleigh was the youngest one. When I went to pick her up she was watching the TV. I thought it was funny, because we dont watch cartoons here. We watch the news and Today show. (I dont make her watch them they are just on...lol) She was probally looking at the TV thinking where is Matt Lauer and Meredith Viera? LOL

Shelby loves cartoons. Gabe takes over the tv in the mornings so she gets to watch all kinds of things. Glad you had some time to your self. it is nice to know that ryleigh can be away from you if you ever need to leave her at a nursery like that. Shelby would freak.

What a milestone, after going through trying to get Rebecca settled in at playgroup part of me does feel its a good thing for then to be left with others for even a short amount of time. Sounds like she was loving it - btw not all kids are biters Becca never was
