Today is the last day of school for both of my kiddos. While they’re excited to have “summer vacation,” this mama is overwrought with emotion.
You see, the girls will not be returning to daycare in the Fall now that I’m playing the role of a SAHM. And, well, we’ve been going to the same daycare since Grace was 3 months old. In fact, her current Preschool teacher used to be the teacher in her infant room back when we first started. We have formed relationships with the teachers over the last 4 years. We know them and even their families.
These women have watched my girls grow. They were there for their first tummy roll over, their first steps. These teachers taught my kids how to use a fork and spoon, and they’re the ones that taught Grace her ABC’s and how to spell her name. They’ve watched the girls personalities form and watch Grace transition from an only child to big sister. These women have become part of our daily lives. My girls love them and these women love my girls, as if they were their own. They’re part of our family.
