a house full of survivors!

Well everyone...I SURVIVED! Charli went to daycare today and she did GREAT and mom did okay too! She was so excited to get on the floor and play with the kids, and the kids liked it too! Sounds like she was so busy learning everything again that she didn't care to eat or nap when she normally does! That is okay with me, I am glad they everyone fell back into place easily! I heard that she was interested in the steps and the chair! Those are two things we don't have at home, so they were new to her! It felt so good to walk in and see her so happy! She kept wanting to give Lynn hugs before we left. I love that she loves it there!

I forgot to mention that Charli started "blowing" kisses yesterday - she blew her first kiss to Grandma Preister on Sunday!

Here are some pictures of Charli from the weekend...

I wake up SO happy!

cute teeth!

Hi Brenda - I'm so glad Charli had such a good first day back! Those days are always harder on moms and dads than the kids (I'm very proud of you as well :)

I will continue to pray for more tastes of the normal routine for you guys. Anna

So glad to hear that Charli loved seeing her friends again! Hope that the rest of your week goes as well as the first day did!

That is great that EVERYONE did so well the 1st day back to 'normal'. That will make it easier tomorrow and the rest of the week. Have a great 4th.

I'm glad that Charli's first day back at day care went well! I hope the rest of the week goes as well, and it gets easier for mom!

I am SOOOOO happy to hear that Charli's first day back at daycare went so well!! She probably LOVED playing with the other kids and being down on the floor with them. What a ball I bet she had! I know it was hard for you to do, but I am SURE Charli had a blast so that's very comforting. Go Charli!!

I was thinking about you guys yesterday. I am so glad to hear that Charli had such a good time, and that you made it through too. Isn't such a blessing to see just how much fun they have at daycare?

Aww, that is so great to hear about daycare. I know they all missed Charli very much. She is such a little joy. I can tell just from the pictures that you post. You are so blessed, Brenda!

P.S. Those are some cute little toofies! ;-)
