And off they go . . .

I remember saying I would never send my kids to daycare.  I WOULD be a stay at home mom, no questions asked.  But, then, life happened. And bills happened and mortgages and loans happened and well the search for daycares began.  And so, a week ago, I sent my two most precious possessions to be cared for by someone else, someone who was not me.  It was not easy and may or may not have involved a middle of the night panic attack where I suddenly could not breath and woke up Gash in desperate need of reassurance (dramatic, yes; the truth, sadly).  However, after I calmed down and after I shed a few (o.k. a lot of) tears on the way to work that morning, I realized that my babies were going to be just fine; I was going to be just fine.  That fact is largely due to Mrs. Hiam.  Thank God for Mrs. Hiam.  It has only taken me a week to fall in love with the woman taking care of Ashton and Mary Seegars.  Each day, when I walk through the door and I am greeted by Mary Seegars's giggles and Ashton's delighted squeals, I am reassured that we made the right choice.  Although my babies are with someone else during the day, we are all going to be just fine.
