Tomorrow I go back to work, and Smacky will have lots of time with Granny, Gary, and her new friends at Kindercare.
Monday Smacky and I did a dry run to Kindercare. She stayed there for several hours, getting to know the teachers and conversing with the stuffed lion attached to one of the chairs. I did see some tear tracks when I picked her up, but they said she had a great day and even took two naps, which is much more than she does at home. I think the day was harder for me than it was for her, but who really knows?
Here is a photo of Gary and Smacky getting ready to start the day. Aren't they cute?
