About Me

Name: Elleoz

From: Fort Mill, South Carolina, United States

I am 32 years old and have been married for 6 years. I had two children under 2 (hence the blog name), but now they are actually 3 and 2. Maybe it is time to change the blog name? Drama Queen is 3 and Wildman is 2 (15 months apart to be exact). I have a Bachelor's Degree on Criminal Justice from Applachian State University (Go Apps!) and have been at my current place of employment for going on 7 years.

    What I Am Listening To

    First Day
    They say change is a good thing right?

    To get everyone up to speed, AM and I visited the new DC together and made a decision. A very hard decision but one that I think (and desperately hope) is the right one. As of February 11th, both DQ and WM will be attending a new day care facility. The DC seems to really have their stuff together as far as daycares go. I popped in unannounced twice and didn't see anything that was alarming. It is an older building and there are probably 85 kids or so total but they are well within the established teacher/student ratio. The director has been there for 15+ years and most of the teachers there have been there for many years as well. I even talked to DSS to check on the reviews & complaints and they stated that there hasn't been anything that I should be concerned about at that location. It is run by a church and occassionally they have an issue with equipment or such, but there have not been any serious violations or abuse reported. And DS's teacher stated that she would start him in underwear when he started coming. YEAH!!! Maybe he will finally catch on and get potty trained. The whole pull up thing isn't working for me or him. I may ask her to hold off for a week or so though so that he can get used to the new place first. I'll have to talk to them about that.

    But overall, we are happy with our decision and we told the kids they would start going to school soon and they both seemed really excited. I just hope that the transistion isn't too stressful for them or me :)

    OK~ back to the present. Today is their first day. All weekend we talked it up that they were going to start school and they both seemed really excited. I walked them in and it was all a little overwhelming for all of us. The DC Director and the kids' teachers weren't there yet, so it was a little of a shuffle to get them where they needed to go. The looks on their eyes made me want to cry...so wide with amazement and confusion. DQ went right into her room and I didn't hear another peep from her. I did hear the teacher tell someone (who I assumed was her) to put her shoes back on. I forgot to tell her that they don't take their shoes off. I then took WM to his room. All he wanted to do was go play on the slide so he was a little upset. I left him and put his bag and blanket in his room and took a peek at him before I left. He still had his coat on but was standing in the room watching TV and had stopped crying. I was a little sad that I didn't get a chance to hug and kiss them goodbye, but I know that at least for now it is better to keep the goodbyes short and sweet so that they don't get a chance to get upset.

    I cried all the way to work and I am trying to keep myself busy so that I don't think about it too much today. I am sure that I am probaby more upset about the whole thing than they are. I just worry. I can't help it. I worry most about WM since he is still so young and used to his old routine. DQ just rolls with the punches. I am sure that I will drive them crazy today and probably for a few more days until we all get used to it. I am going to call them in a few minutes to make sure that they got all settled in and things are going ok. I have thought about going in at lunch time, but I don't want them to see me and get upset when I have to leave again. I might sneak over and peek in the window at nap time to see how they are doing. Obesses much? :)

    They say change is a good thing. I am sure it will be, but I don't like change. It gives me too much anxiety.
