I Don't Want To Jinx It ....

... BUT today is going pretty well, all things considered.

For those of you who don't know, I now have five, yes five, kids in my care. All under the age of four.

Emily is the newest ... and she has MAJOR separation anxiety; a real momma's girl. I was sure today would be hell ....


She only cried for ten minutes after being dropped off ... AND ...

... SHE TOOK HER BOTTLE FROM ME!!!! This is huge because she just wouldn't last week when she was over for a trial run.

Crossing my fingers that the rest of the day will be just as good!!!!

*****UPDATE 2:21PM*****

So far, it's still going well. Lunch went fine ... Jess was the only one who turned her nose up. She's pretty hungry now. Oh well, snack is soon. Emily wasn't too keen on it ... but it was also messy and I tried to feed her, which she really doesn't like - she prefers to feed herself. She did eat the buttered bread that went with it and she snacked on Cheerios.

We successfully went to the park today. Not too painful.

Emily then took a bottle from me this afternoon, Hallelujah! The young ones are down for nap now and the two oldest are about to go for quiet time.

Then blessed peace for an hour!!! Ahhh.

********UPDATE 5:12PM*********

The kids are all gone. And I am ready for a nap!

They were pretty good .... I really have to scoot out and pick up another booster seat cuz Emily does sooooooo much better sitting at the table with the other kids. Not a peep out of her!

And it all starts again tomorrow morning at 7:30AM.
