Last Day of School
Jackson's last day of Mother's Day Out is today. Next time he goes, it will be to a different program. He has been in a class with older toddlers - who in fact were already toddlers when Jackson, still a baby, started. He has learned so much over the past few months and I can't help but think he's been challenged in a great way by being with the older kids. I am so attached to the teachers and the program director who have been so kind, encouraging, and loving. Hopefully they won't think I'm weird when I show up with my camera this afternoon and if I get a little teary saying goodbye. I should be getting him ready right now but since his class is having Wendy's for lunch, I don't have to make him yet another grilled cheese sandwich today. Woo hoo! The truth is I've had Jackson enrolled in two programs - it's a long story - and I've just been choosing based on my work needs each week which days/place to take him. I feel like I've been two-timing them. Every "Oh, we missed Jackson last time!" makes me feel like a jerk. So while I'll really miss this place, it will be good to shake that guilty feeling! If and when my dad reads this he'll be sure to lecture me on false guilt. Thanks in advance, Dad!
