Trial run at the sitters...

As many of you know, I am getting ready to return back to work and my precious little lady is going to an actual sitter for the first time. I was blessed to have my Aunt Pat watch her for the remainder of last school year after my maternity leave, knowing that I would have to look for something else at the start of this year. After several phone interviews and visits to homes, her Daddy and I decided on Miss Patty. So in 4 days she will be going to her new sitters while Mommy and Daddy are at work. She will be the youngest of 5 children at this in-home sitter and I think she will LOVE it once she gets adjusted. Not too sure who it's going to be harder on... Mommy or Karly. Tuesday I spent a couple hours there with her, introducing her to the other kiddos (who are all adorable) and trying to make her a little familiar with the environment before I leave her all day. And today, the plan was to leave her, by herself, for a few hours and get some needed school clothes shopping done, but needless to say, I only made it an hour...better than nothing I guess. She was TOTALLY fine, a little fussy crying here and there, but did much better than I thought. I really tried to shop and stay gone longer, but it just didn't happen.... here's to Mommy surviving this HORRIBLE experience, knowing in the long run, that Karly will be just fine! : (


  1. You made it! I am so proud of you! Good Job mom and Karly! See you on Tuesday.
