Hey, how are things going with your son? Is he adjusting well? I haven't seen a post from you in a while and I was wondering how things were going there.
My daughter has only gotten worse. Instead of just whining at drop-off, she is now crying and screaming and clinging to me like the world is ending. I spent 25 minutes with her at the sitter's house today with her in my lap while she got acclimated to the change and she still freaked out. Her sitter had to restrain her from running out the door. I have no other options but to go to school so I had to go, whether or not I liked it, which I didn't. It's been like this since last week. Any ideas? I tried the book, "The Kissing Hand" and we have been doing that. We are still co-sleeping, we still snuggle each morning and talk abotu what the day will hold. We tried the calendar you did with your son but she's not too interested in it now. I spend 15-25 minutes each morning with her at the sitter's house and we give lots of hugs and kisses. Her sitter says she calms down within 10 minutes and is happy all day but I feel horrible about these drop-offs. Of course the sitter knows to call me if she doesn't calm down within 15 minutes or so but I feel like I'm letting her cio, which I've never done before and do not condone. What do you suggest? Anything? I am at my wit's end. I stress all day about it because I know she was so upset. As I walk out the door I hear her screaming, "mommy take me with you," "mommy I want you to stay with me for a few minutes." She looks like the world is coming to an end. HELP!
