Seeing that my daughter likes her new sippy cup makes me feel exhilirated.
The sight of her chowing down bite after bite of fish fillet made me grin from ear to ear. Most of the time she is a picky eater, so I guess you can tell that just by this sight, my heart is screaming for joy!
She demonstrated two new skills today: One is using a fork and spoon in a somehow correct way, and second, Removing her poopy diaper all by herself and throwing it in the garbage can, including her panty!
Today, in preparation for daycare the coming week, I cut her hair. And I am bursting out laughing watching her face while I was trimming her bangs. Her eyes were tightly closed , her face all crumpled up and her lips are curled up in a little smile as I passed the scissor thru her bangs.
Today, I realize that even though at this point in time, I am not with my child every moment of the day, There are still plenty of times that we can share before and after her daycare.
Today, I guess you can tell that I am still emotional over my daughter going to the daycare. But things are getting better.
Today, I remember that being her mother, I should be the first one to let her go, so she can see more of the world.
So today, and everyday, I am letting go.
Its hard when you know that you are all that your daughter needs. But then maybe, that is not true. There is a different kind of growing and learning that happens when I am not with her. And I have to let her do that.
Just let go a little , she will be fine…
