Monday, 27 January 2014: Forty Three Weeks Old.
Ayla went on her first play date today, to the adjoining hotel room for a play with our friend’s 3yo daughter.
Man, I am going to be such a mess when I go back to work and Ayla goes to day care!
Ayla was only next door and she was gone for only 30 minutes but I was aware of every second as it passed by.
Don’t get me wrong, it was great to know Ayla was out of the way and in safe hands while I was busy packing up our stuff, but goodness knows what I’ll be like when we’re apart for a whole day!
The thing that struck me the most was the wondering what Ayla was doing, what funny antics she was pulling or what new lesson she was learning.
I wasn’t worrying about whether she was safe or getting in to trouble, which surprised me a little bit, but I think the fear of missing something important was harder to reason with.
