This week saw another first for us. This week you moved up to the toddler unit at the nursery.
For the past 6 weeks, the carers from the baby unit had been taking you over the toddler unit for an hour or so every now and then and you were fine. You got a little teary when they left you but soon got over it.
On Tuesday, we went to the nursery and hung your bag up on your new peg - and it all went downhill from there! This upset you because this was not your peg! Then when I handed you over to your new carer you wiggled and screamed and cried so hard I wanted to just pull you back out of her hands and run away.
But instead, I turned and shut the door behind me with your crying ringing in my ears. I sat in my car and quietly composed myself before I drove off to work. All day I thought about you and toyed with the idea of phoning the nursery to see how upset you were and whether or not I should take the rest of the day off!!
The clock ticked by so slowly!
As soon as I finished work I dashed over to the nursery to get you - only to be greeted by a very very happy, cheerful and bubbly baby!!
I was told that 2 minutes after I'd left you, you went off and played and had a lovely day! Your new carer loves you and finds you so funny and today I didn't feel as bad as yesterday for leaving you crying - (step up from yesterday's screaming) - but it doesn't stop it from pulling at my heart.
Love you always
