Well, I did it! I went to a MOPS meeting yesterday with the boys. Every fiber of my being was not wanting to go to this because of the boys and how they would respond.
I dropped the boys off in their class, not lingering, just dropped them off and then went to my class.
I met some moms there and ate brunch -although my appetite wasn’t there cause I was nervous about the boys.
Listened to a great devotional and heard a great speaker who talked about speaking encouragment to our kids.
Unbelievably they were in their class for OVER 1 1/2 hours! The whole meeting I was expecting someone to come tap me on the shoulder to come rescue my boys! I have to admit I left the meeting a few minutes early because I was dying to find out how the boys were doing.
As soon as the boys saw me they had a meltdown…awww!!! My boys!
The teacher said they did well for the most part and would cry once in a while especially if another kid was crying in the room.
Overall they did good for their first moppets class.
It took a few minutes for the boys to get their cries out after being reunited with me. A quick bottle fix helped them to relax and they slept the whole ride home and stayed asleep till about 1pm that afternoon!
I don’t know how moms who work do it! I would have the hardest time leaving my kids in childcare all day. I think it’s harder on me. Oh well, I’m growing…I’m doing what I know I need to do as a mom. My boys survived and they’ll continue to get better about being in childcare when it’s needed. They’ll definetely have their objections but I know it’s good for them to experience this.
