The little boy has taken the big step today. His daycare journey has started and he did great for the first day. I took day off today and watched him secretly for few hours. I have prepared myself for weeks that I should control my tears and turn deaf to his howling, that I should not run to him upon hearing the constant cry. But, he was just fine after an hour. Thanks to the care takers. They pacified him really well and carried him around until he was comfortable. He dozed off on the care taker’s shoulder and sat quietly on her lap when rest of the kids played outdoor. He didn’t play or mingle with other kids but observed them quietly as they played. I returned home with a light heart and then picked him up in few hours. He was taking nap when I went to pickup.
He is in half a day program this week and starting full time from next week. His schedule for next five years is set. Hope he will start to like the people at his second home sooner and create beautiful memories.
