Because it means I leave work in 15 minutes and pick Carson up from care. He's always so happy to see me and kisses me constantly from when I leave the front door until I strap him into his car seat. Seriously. I'm not even exagerating. I normally ask him for the first one and then he just keeps going. Who wouldn't love that?
I've heard (again from my wonderful friends and family who already have kids) that at some point they may not want to leave daycare. They'll be having such a good time with their friends that they won't want to leave. They've warned me not to take it personally and I won't.
Have I mentioned that I love having so many people who have already gone through what I have? I take advice and suggestions whereever they feel they can offer them, I love hearing war stories and how they've dealt with certain situations. I find sometimes when I try to offer the same help, I've gotten "Oh, my child won't do that." or "Oh, I won't feel that way." or "That's not going to be a problem for us". In a way that makes me feel stupid for bringing it up in the first place.
