After 16 months spent together almost 100% of the time, you started Mother's Day Out today. You've been watched by other people since you were 10 weeks old and I went back to teaching but I felt like a routine would be better for you as you are getting older. I've been having mixed feelings about the whole thing. I know it will be awesome for you (and me! I get to go back to work part-time!), but I'm used to being in the same building as you and at an arm's reach if you need me. I know you'll be fine but it's always bittersweet watching you grow up and become your own person. Good luck buddy and have fun!
