Default Now, I understand why parents cry!

...when they see you off to school for the first time.
This morning, my daughter (28 months old) went to day-care for the first time. It's a full-day day care because my wife is a full-time student (and part-time bartender) and I have a full-time job. So she's there from 8 to 6pm every day.

It was so hard for me to let her go!!!
She looked so puzzled and sad, and it didn't help that she started crying as I was leaving. But I totally snuck back in to see how she was doing 2 minutes later before I completely left. And she was playing with other kids already.

Still, this morning was really tough.
All morning I've been thinking about how she's doing.

Any other parents feel my pain in here?
And yeah, I totally had a few tears as I was leaving...

I don't know that feeling of seeing your child leave your side, even for just 6-8 hours. But from reading your post I can somehow telepathically relate.

And you'll cry again when it's kindergarten and again when they sing in the school play or hit their first t-ball and run for 1st base, repeat and rinse all through their days.

I have 3 and it's never become mundane watching them reach their milestones of life.

kind of off topic but this morning I was at Starbucks there was a mother in front of me and her 2 year old was smiling and waving at me, batting her eyes ... cracked me up and the mother never knew what was going on and it made me realize how much of our children's lives we miss. it's like you think you know everything even a baby is doing but in reality they have this whole little secret world only experienced by them

If you made this post on facebook, I would have clicked "like".
Glad to know there are other parents on this forum besides me, although from your post I can tell you're a bit older then me (unless your 3 kids are young). But since you spoke about other milestones, I'm assuming they're older...

Well, I work till at least 5 and my wife works at a restaurant 3 days a week (Mon, Tue & Fri) from 4-11. She has classes from 2-5 the other two days, so 6 is when we can pick her up.

Don't make me feel any more guilty then I already am asshole.

For about the first 30 seconds after drop off. then it's play time!

True story, my youngest cried her eye's out the first day of kindergarten, second day some tears but you knew she'd be OK third day "bye dad"

Last day of kindergarten before summer vacation I pick her up, we're walking to the car and I hear *sniff. Look down she crying because she already misses school. Turned into a complete blubber fest for the next 20 minutes, kid was beside herself was completely devastated by her impending summer vacation

Took her a full 2 days to calm down she loved school and her teacher that much. She's still loves it that much, this year she had her backpack ready to a month before school started

Who leaves their child in day care for that long? I know most times both parents work but that is a lot of hours to be in a day care. This is the most important time in her life too. She would technically be longer at the day care than she is at home.

The people at the day care are technically more like her parents than you. In regards to teaching, talking and playing with them.

That New York minute eh? They can be in day care long but at the age of 2?

I don't know about this.

I have a 21 month old girl at home, and I don't think I could of done what you did. I know you had no choice, but man that must of been tough.

Luckily for me I have a stay at home mother in-law that watches my kid while we're at work.

Glad you waited till Kindergarten to leave her. I think at 2, it's very early to leave them.

this.

Most couple or people of our age group have in-laws/parents to watch. Leaving a kid in daycare at 2?

My buddy needed help scouting and screening daycare providers and you would never believe the crap I see. I would not trust any of them. If you are going to take your kids to daycare make sure it's a bigger and more established one. It may be pricey but well worth it. Considering what I have seen out there.
