The 1st Day


DEEP breath....

Okay, I did it.  

I made it through Lovebug's 1st day of Preschool.  I survived.  

BIG *sigh*


It's very hard letting someone else have your baby for couple hours with D along.  It's hard for me to trust other people  with her, because they don't know as much as I do.  But I give them what information they need to know to take care of her and I am only a phone call away if the unexpected happens.  It helps that I live only 5 minutes away too!

This morning Lovebug walked into her room like she owned the place.  (I wish that I could have gotten a picture of that!)  She said good morning to her teacher and got her coat and back pack hung up in the right spot. She even took her folder right over to the teachers desk and put it in the basket.

I'm SO very PROUD of her.

I still can't believe how brave she is....

I did get a call from her teacher, Mrs. C.  this morning.  She couldn't get the strips to read (for some reason) and had to poke her 3 times because of an error message.  Lovebug just sat there and told her "It's was okay, it happens sometimes".  ( I could hear her in the background over the phone.:)

Thank goodness for Dexie at that point!  Since we couldn't get her finger poke to read, I  just had  Mrs. C tell me what Dexie said so I had an idea where she was at (238) and went ahead and told Mrs. C. it was okay to give Lovebug her insulin.

Lovebug did have a little accident today, of course, because that was the ONLY thing I FORGOT to pack in her backpack!  A change of clothes!

It ended up being a pretty good morning.  Mrs C. was confident with Lovebug's diabetes care and Lovebug  was happy.  What else could a mom ask for!

The first day of preschool is always a tough one! I know the anxiety for us mama's!! I'm so happy that despite a few glitches, you can still chalk it up to a successful day!

So happy for you and Lovebug! Just think: it was a "pretty good morning," and it's only going to get better from here! :)

Yay! I am so glad it went well Heather. I know it can be a stressful and anxiety provoking time...on top of just "normal" feelings about a child without "d" going to preschool.

I hope the week continues to go as successfully.
