It took only 5 days for Xander's first daycare experience to end in dismal failure.
Day 1: Went well what with the novelty and not realizing Mommy was leaving him there for 5 hours.
Day 2: Realized Mommy was leaving him for 5 hours, cried pitifully but allowed himself to be comforted.
Day 3: Disastrous attempt to leave him there for his nap. Stayed only 2 1/4 hours.
Day 4: Cried for most of 5 hours, except when daycare lady was holding him.
Day 5: After an hour and a half, daycare lady called to say it wasn't going to work and could I come get him.
He was so happy when Hari brought him home, as if to say, "I won. Nyah nyah nyah."
However, what he doesn't know is that I called the YWCA and put him on the wait-list for their daycare program. I'm hoping that with a bunch of kids and very experienced employees, and with a minuscule amount of daycare experience under his belt, that this will work out better.
Now the question is, will I be able to get any work done until a spot opens up for him?
