Onto other big milestones, today I registered her up for Mother's day out--MDO. She starts on Thursday. I was not sure about this, in fact part of me hates it and the other part thinks interaction with other kids will be good for her. We will see. She will be going from 9 - 11:15. She could stay until 1pm, but I am not ready for that yet. Baby steps. I got the call last week, and immediately turned it down. However the incident of her kicking me out of the play area at Chic-fil-a entered my mind and I thought, maybe Meredith would benefit from a playdate with other kiddos and no mommies. So I called back and the spot was still available. So I went in today to let her check it out and register her with an open mind.....if she freaks out, I will turn down the spot and that is that. I carried on like any MDO mommy virgin.
"So my daughter is going to cry Thursday, really loudly okay?!?!"
"Uhm if she cries the whole time, you will call me right?"
"She can cry really loudly...I am fully expecting her to do this."
"She probably won't want to stay Thursday"
"What do I need to bring with her? Oh diapers right...and sippy cups, and her lunch...got it!"
"So she probably won't like it Thursday, but we will see!"
"Thanks so much, see you Thursday, okay Meredith are you ready to go?"
Meredith busy playing in the classroom....."no mommy no! Mizit pay wit kidz...pay wit kidz"
Yeah I am probably the one who will be crying Thursday....pray for me.
Silently I am still telling myself...."this is a good thing, this is a good thing!"
