|My brother Brad, myself and Makenzie after church|
Dirk and I decided the last time that we were at church that it is time to put her in child care at church. We couldn't pay attention and she would get frustrated, it was just becoming quite the ordeal. The week leading up to putting her in I was SO anxious. I never thought I'd be that parent but I just couldn't stop thinking of the germs she'd be putting in her mouth and what if another kid bit her or hit her or??? It was absolutely ridiculous because we all know that's what childhood is about BUT as a mommy I was just having such an issue with it.
Well we did it yesterday. The worker quickly took her from us and showed her the bubbles and she was fine. Not a whimper or a look back. We watched her from the window for a bit and then had my brother check on her midway through the service. He said she was doing great and was just playing toys. We came to pick her up and she was sitting in the middle of the room playing and having a good time. I am SO thankful that she did well and that we can now enjoy the church service and really pay attention. Just another milestone in our baby girl's life.
