I am so happy to share that today when my hubby and I dropped Daisy off at our churches nursery, marks the second official time that she hasn't broken into hysterics when we attempted to leave. I set her by a big shelf of toys and her face lit up with a big smile and she immediately began playing. I gave her a big kiss and walked out quickly to nothing but peace and quiet. This is the first time in 16 months that leaving Daisy has been pain free for all of us and I have to say it is the most amazing feeling. Some mom's never experience a child with separation anxiety and I often wonder if it is hard for them to relate to what it feels like for those of us whose hearts are worn ragged by it. It is no fun at all. I am not sure if this season is going to last but, I am sure soaking it up!! I get to walk away without any stress, worry or sadness in my heart and it is such an incredibly peaceful feeling for me. So, now I know how mom's feel who don't deal with separation anxiety...this is Heavenly! I know she is having fun and it makes it so much easier to relax and enjoy my time wholeheartedly. Thank you Lord this little step of progress!
My little girl loves to climb into her toy basket and play. I think it's so funny to see her body all squished inside the small basket and to see her happy as a clam pulling random toys out from under her hiney. She is such a crack up! She found her toy phone and chatted on it for a while and that is when I ran and grabbed my camera to capture this silly memory. The wicker basket directly next to her is full of my music CD's and she knows she isn't supposed to open it but, every now and then I will notice the lid is bulging and when I open it I usually find a toy or a sippy cup full of spoiled milk hiding underneath. hahahahahah Love being a mommy!
