First day at daycare

These posts will be a mixed up in date order but it's catch up time...
Yesterday Kaiden had his first day at day care. He's going two days a week (Thursdays and Fridays) until my work days are sorted out/confirmed and then we will drop one of the daycare days and Brett will do a Daddy daycare.

We spent a little bit of time together at daycare on Tuesday and Wednesday as a warm-up and he loved it! Lots of cuddles from other babies (especially the chicks), exploring from one end of the grounds to the other, babbling and enjoying an afternoon tea. I was a bit worried about how he would go being away from us, being that Kaiden has only had one day away from both of us and that was back in April/May last year when I had my wisdom teeth out.

There was no need to worry....he loved every minute of it and when we came to pick him up it was like, "OK you're here, now I'm off to explore over here...." Living up to his nickname of Kaptain Kaos, one of his first actions of the day was to proceed to climb up the stairs of the little fort in the outside area and proceed to try to go down the slide...until he was stopped! He was apparently very pleased with himself. He ate all his meals, had a good nap, had loads of fun. *Sigh* life at home with Mummy will probably seem so boring now.

I was a bit sad when I dropped him off, another milestone in our lives, but there are still so many more adventures to have!

P.S. Pretty sad but the carer said that Kaiden knew when the camera was being pointed to him and turned around and smiled! That's my boy....

Glad to see that he has adapted well. It will be really good for him as well as you.
