The girls are pretty much inseparable.
For the last 10 and a half months they have done just about everything....together!
Wherever one goes, the other is sure to follow.
They are like two peas in a pod.
Sarah and Reagan have gotten so use to having each other right there by their side that they are a little lost when they are not together.
The summer is over, the cooler temps have moved in, the leaves have begun to fall from the trees, and school is back in session. Lots of changes going on all around us and Sarah and Reagan are about to experience a BIG change in their daily routines.
The girls are starting Day Care this morning and they will no longer be together every minute of every day. They both have been placed in age appropriate rooms within the facility. Sniff, sniff.
A few weeks ago, we were faced with having to make a change in our child care. It was unexpected and definitely threw me for a loop. The girls have never been in a real day care and the thought of sending them to one made me want to cry...... Okay, I will admit it, I did cry....A LOT!
Pat and I have been juggling, with the help of my parents, for the last 5 weeks. I have been trying to put off the inevitable, but we cannot keep going like this. We are trying to balance career and home life with no extra help for the girls during the work day and we just cannot do it anymore. We had to bite the bullet and officially enroll them.
I know they are going to make new friends and in the end it will probably be a good change for them.
There is no doubt in my mind that Sarah will thrive in this type of setting. I am tiny bit concerned about Reagan just because she has not been home quite a year yet. I hope that she will adapt to the new environment and will understand that no matter what, Mommy and Daddy are coming back to pick her up at the end of the each day.
As is usually the case, this will probably be more difficult on me then it will be on them.
Everyone says change is good and sometimes things happen for a reason.
I hope this is one of those situations that results in something that is better for the girls.
Even though they are going to be separated during the day, I hope the bond they share will remain as strong as ever and the time they do have together will be that much sweeter.
We are due to arrive at the day care around 8am and Pat and I plan to stay a bit until both girls feel secure enough for us to go.
Praying that we are able to escape without tears..... from them or me:)
Will update later to tell you how it went.
Wish us luck~

They are, in my opinion, her BEST SET EVER and I am completely addicted.
