It was a rather big day today. The girls survived their first day of day care! We found a really nice lady who runs a day care out of her home and we'll be taking the girls there a handful of days a month. I guess the girls did really well for their first day. They actually took a nap...which I honestly thought would never happen. Granted, the nap was only about 45 minutes long, but that's a whole lot better than I had feared! They didn't eat terribly well. However, they tend to eat one really good meal a day, usually lunch or supper. Today it happened to be supper. So I don't think it really had anything to do with being at day care.
They weren't even really sad when I left. Adalyn immediately went into the other room to play with the new toys. Alivia was a bit more hesitant. She clung tightly to me when we first arrived. But by the time I left (about 20 minutes later) she was pretty content on exploring her new surroundings. They're obviously not going full time, but it's just enough of a change to give them a little something new...new toys, new surroundings, new activities to engage in, new kids, etc. So I think this is going to be a good thing.
Oh yes, and the expressions on their faces when I came to get them? Priceless. They melted my heart.
