About 90 minutes ago, Brandy and I dropped Alex off at day care for the very first time. More than that, this is the first time since he was born that at least one of Brandy, Amy or I have not been within earshot. The closest he has been to not being with one of the three of us was when one of his grandparents were watching him while we we elsewhere in the house. So this is a big step. For both him and for us. It is just two mornings a week for now, but still, gulp.
Of course, as we were saying goodbye and leaving, trying to get him to wave goodbye, give us a hug, whatever, he was very much just giving us a “Can’t you see I’m busy playing with this bus?” attitude and didn’t bat an eye as we walked out the door while one of the adults there sat and started to play with him.
