Today is Kennedi's last day of Children's Morning Out for the year. Yes, that does make me want to cry because I do enjoy my 4 hours of alone time a week but that is about to end in a few weeks anyway.
Kennedi started out the year by crying when I left her and it broke my heart! Soon she would go into the classroom and not cry but still be a little unsure of things. Again, that was hard to watch! There were a few days that I wanted to go back and get her (OK so that feeling did not last too long).
Then, all of a sudden, Kennedi started to reach for her teachers and could not wait to get into that classroom. As nice as that was to see, it made me sad to know that she did not always want or need to be with me. But then again, that did not take long to get over (on my part). I started to enjoy that free time.
Today I brought Kennedi in for her last day and her teachers handed me a photo album of Kennedi throughout the year. They turned to the first page and it really hit me how much she has grown in the past 10 months. I knew not to look at the other pictures until I got into the car (good decision!).
I was so excited to sign her up for next year's CMO because I am going to have her in 2 days a week. I know she will love that! For a few moments I even thought about registering Ryleigh for the infant room. Don't worry, I didn't, at least not yet. I will wait and see how it goes and I can always add her after it starts if they have room.
But here is a video of me flipping through the pages of the photo album. What a difference a few months make in the life of a toddler!!
I wish I had set it to music but it was done in a hurry....
