Life is moving forward after a couple of very disturbing days. I have been forced to remember what is important in life is my family and friends. There is nothing more important than protecting and fighting for my children's well-being. The past two days I have focused my energy on just that. The good news is that it has forced me to remember how precious my children are and remind me about how much I love them. It is true that crisis can tear people apart. It can also bring people together and that is what has been happening in our home.
I spent today with both of my boys. It was wonderful to spend time with them and remember how great they actually are. We had a home visit from our foster home consultant who confirmed my beliefs about the past few days and that I am making the right decisions regarding day care. I spoke to a child psychiatrist with the school district who also confirmed my instincts and told me I was doing a wonderful job and to keep doing whatever it is I am doing with my boys.
Jacob, M and I also toured two daycare centers this morning. They both seem to be very good centers and the kids enjoyed visiting both centers. I was happy to see a young boy who had difficulty at a previous day care with M thriving in the new one. He seemed really happy and to be doing great. I look forward to seeing his mom again and discussing how great he is.
I did decide to enroll both boys in the last center we saw. They were excited to learn that their first field trip will be to a dairy farm to milk a cow. They will also be riding a yellow school bus once a month for field trips. For my kids, that is a dream come true. I really think this daycare will be a good fit and hope they succeed there.
I don't know when the boys will be changing day cares yet. It could be as early as Tuesday or as late as in 2 weeks. It really depends on what the director at the current center says. I'm just happy we found a place that they appear to be happy at. I really hope the transition goes well.
Tomorrow will be a full day. We need to drop off paperwork at the doctor and at the new daycare. I need to take some paperwork to my job that I was suppose to turn in on Wednesday. With all of the drama at daycare I completely forgot about it so I hope they won't be too annoyed. We also are planning a playdate with some good friends over the lunch hour. It will be a much needed chance to relax and just get away for awhile. Then our friend, P, comes over tomorrow night. I'm not sure what we will do with her yet but I am sure we will have fun.
