A Hard Day Ahead

As you know I run a daycare in my home and have been doing this for 9 years. I get to care for some wonderful kids on a daily basis. Right now I have one of the BEST group of kids in my daycare. I have my son Austin age almost 5 lol, my nephew James age 5, Laci age 2, Bella age almost 2 and then there is Mathew age 3. Mathew is the one who is making this day a very hard day today. Mathews Dad is in the Army, he gets transfered every 2 - 3 years. I have had Mathew in my daycare for 2.5 years and they are leaving today Dad got transfered to Colorado. This is wonderful for their family since Mathews Moms family lives there so they will have family with them all the time now. Mathew is a sweet little boy who can throw some of the biggest fits in the world but then make up for it after with hugs and kisses. He has a kind heart and loves to be around little ones that he can bring toys to and play with. He will be leaving today at about 4 and by 4:01 I am going ot be in tears. I can usually hold it together until they leave but I am not sure I will be able to with this one. He reminds me of my oldest boy Travis. He has be with someone who will keep their thumb on him or he will walk all over you but if you get the bluff on him and make him think you are a tough cookie then he listens and grows into a well desiplined sweet little boy.Mathew also has two older sisters. In the begining I wasn't sure how his oldest sister Emily would take to me she was very guarded. But.......once she realized I wouldn't hurt her little brother she warmed up to me and we developed a wonderful friendship. Taylor is the middle child and has a wonderful spirit about her. She is her own woman she loves fashion and is one of the most stylish girls I have ever met. I am going ot miss all of them soo much so I just pray that I will be able to hold back the tears so the kids don't see me cry.

You put the "care" in Day Care.

I hope they send you a postcard or Christmas letter now and then.

Iknow it is going to be tough. Those kids are very lucky to thave had you in their life - especially Matthew. I know how often you were ready to pull your hair out and yet you love him a lot. Hang in there.

Love, Mom
