Today is Ariam's first day at the shiny bright dream daycare. The one with the Chinese lanterns.
I cannot say that I've been feeling completely settled about the decision to move her.
But this morning we arrived and they had a "Welcome Ariam" sign on the toddler room door. As we walked into the main reception area everyone came out to say hi and make a fuss. Ari was so very pleased with herself and her grand reception. She granted many smiles and kisses. When we went into the toddler room she noticed the play kitchen immediately, made a beeline to it, and was still there when I said goodbye half an hour later.
She's such a big girl these days. It's hard. I wish I could keep her little forever. And yet I love to see her growing into such a happy sparkling little toddler. (Lately Ariam has been saying "happy" or "happy baby" when she's in a good mood.) :)
The new daycare has an online video camera. I'm about to log on and see what she's up to before I get down to work.div>
