She made it a week....

So I should have written this post last week, but just didn't feel like it because I was bummed out.

I knew that I was probably being naive thinking a new daycare would just instantly fix all the biting...and it didn't.  She made it a week.  Three bites last week  Two on one day, one a couple of days later.  Two were squabbles over toys, the other one was a "big" kid helping too much.  I get it.  She was frustrated.

But I feel so bad that I haven't found the "thing" that teaches her this isn't okay.  Usually, I feel like I know her so well, and now I just feel like I'm missing something...

Drop offs in the morning are a bit rough too, and we're both struggling with that.  I can literally count the number of times she cried in the mornings going to her other daycare, and now the mornings are filled with lots of tears.  When I pick her up in the afternoon she is great, just playing away, but I really hate leaving her crying every morning.

I know this is a big change and she's still adjusting, but *ugh* I really hope things even out before we have to introduce preschool in a couple of months...


  1. Hold on sweet momma. You will both find your way. You really will.

    Joe,who is 9 now and yes, typical, bite like crazy at Claire's age and it did not last forever. It really did not. And crying, would you laugh if I told you that Caitlin, is 23 and cried up until her senior year in highschool? That is no joke either

    Just trying to make you smile and let you know, this too shall pass. I promise.

    Love to your two love bugs and to you, hugs from a not so much wiser but a much OLDER mommy of six.

  2. I am thinking about you both! Hard way to start your day...hugs n big smiles

  3. That does sound tough. But lot's can change in a few months time, hang in there, hopefully it is just a passing phase with claire.

  4. I'm so sorry you are having a struggle with this. It just breakes your heart when your little one crys when you leave them somewhere. But there is hope. The fact that she is happy when you go to pick her up says a lot. Things will get better. You are doing all that you can when it comes to the bitting just know that it won't last. There is a hope just beyond the horizon you just need to hang in there. We are all pulling for you.

  5. ((hugs))! I hope it gets better soon!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what is on your mind.
