Lucas goes to Mother's Day Out one day a week. I enrolled him for many reasons-- to learn, to socialize, to play with other kids his age, and to give me one day a week to run errands and pick up the house by myself!
At the beginning of the year, my sweet boy would sob and cling to me for dear life. I second guessed my decision to send him, but pushed ahead anyway. Now, he walks right in, waves to his teachers, smiles and says, "Bye, Mom!" I am glad I decided to keep him in. I love seeing him happy and well adjusted. He does have one requirement though-- he must take green blankie with him for a little security. And I oblige.
