One year ago today, I dropped you off for your first day at Montessori in the Infant room, and I had my first day back to work. I was absolutely heartbroken to leave you. You were still so small, and no one knew you like I knew you. Right now, I am blessed to be home with you for a short time, but this day was absolutely a tough one. It was our first time apart in about a year.
Looking back, the socialization and the environment were all good for you. You learned, played and grew. Although I was sad to leave you, it was great for you to be apart from me for a few hours while you explored your new environment.
