It's a sad day at our house.
Today is the last day that Owen and Anderson will regularly be at Mrs. Maria's...Miss Mia to Owen and Fia to Anderson. They can both say Mrs. Maria, but continue to call her by what they called her before they could enunciate Maria. We have been very blessed to have Mrs. Maria care for them for over the past 3 1/2 years...since Owen was 18 months and all of Anderson's life.
I remember how tough the decision was to pull Owen out of daycare to give at home care another try. Looking back, it's hard to believe the decision was a hard one as it has worked wonderfully for our family and hers. The kids have been safe, healthy and loved during their time at her house. They've had individual care and attention and a stable relationship with a care provider.
We are excited, but a little anxious (ok, maybe I'm the only anxious one) about the new adventure for our family with kindergarten for Owen and full-time preschool for Anderson. T minus 3 days before kindergarten! Yikes!
