just what i needed to hear

You know those people who always know the right thing to say at the right time. I am so freaking lucky because I actually have a few of those people in my life. I have a whole lot of stuff going on right now and Ive been feeling a little stresed and emotional about it all. You can read about some of it here and some other stuff is just not for the blogosphere...

After a kind of rough going day dealing with all the issues surrounding Jenna and daycare, and my guilt and her happiness...I open my email and I get this amazing note from one of those people in my life.  It doesn't really matter who she is, but she reads this and I hope she smiles when she does, because it made my day.  It's exactly what I needed to hear, when I needed to hear it. 

I was concerned about you when I read your blog from yesterday. I know this is a very difficult time for you and there is nothing anyone can say or do to make you feel better. However, coming from someone who did the same thing and survived (not without tears) I can tell you that everything is going to be fine. Once you see how much fun she is having and how tired she is at the end of the day from all the fun and exciting activiites you will begin to feel better. You will also start to cherish the time you spend with her over the weekends even more and if you still have trouble you also know that you have a pretty terrific support system to help YOU deal with this transition (Jenna will be fine).

I so hope I can make other people feel better after a rough patch like she did for me.


  1. whoever sent you that note makes ME want to go to daycare, I mean send C there. It is going to be great! yeah for good friends! have a great weekend. do something NOT stressful :)

  2. My son goes to daycare once a week, but both the hubs and I are home all summer since I teach and he is laid off. There is potential for my hubs to be starting a new job soon and of course I will have to go back to work in less than a month. The anxiety is creeping in. It's invading my sleep and my days. I know Eddie LOVES daycare. He has proven that. But I am the one who doesn't do well with being away all day every day. I am scared. I am anxious. I wish I could put the brakes on summer. Let's hold each other's hands!

  3. Thanks....That made my day!

  4. How awesome that you have people in your life like this! It's always great when you have support from friends and family.
