The Drop-Off

Everyone talks about how emotional it is when you drop your baby off at daycare for the first time, so needless to say I've been dreading this day for a while now. Even though I've been back at work for a month, but my mom has been watching Charlotte on the days I was in the office so it hasn't been a big deal.
Prepping is the worst part. You see, when Charlotte was with my mom, I didn't have to pack or worry about anything! Grandma always has diapers, wipes, bottles, formula and even spare clothes. But daycare, that is a different beast. I have to provide all those things plus sheets! I was running around last night trying to label everything and hoping I didn't forget anything. Think I have enough bags?!

Not only was I packing for the drop off, but I'm also trying to work out at after work so I don't have to do it when I get home. Needless to say I had a TON of bags. So much so that I had to have my husband help me load the car because all these bags plus Charlotte would have been impossible in one trip!

The drop off went well. I think being packed and prepared the night before helped with the stress and anxiety of such a big day. Everything ran like a well oiled machine because I also made sure that both out outfits were laid out for the whole week. The key is going to be to make sure I keep up with this routine every week!


  1. AW MAN..I just wanna hug you right now. I seriously cannot even imagine Savanna going to Daycare. To this day (she's almost a year!) the only people that have watched Savanna is her Daddy and my Mom. At our house, always. I would be a nervous wreck!

  2. I feel like I am going to be the EXACT same way if I ever have kids and have to drop them off!!!! I over prepare and over pack for everything, so I know I will do the same for day care!!

    Great blog, new follower here!!! I look forward to coming back :)
