My Maddie pattatie (niece)  is 4 today !  It is crazy how time and growth are simultaneously fast.  My niece is still a very independent person.  She was introduced  to daycare, weening her away from mama and exposing her to others.  I can definitely empathize with moms on the separation anxiety, especially if you are a stay at home mom.  You are their sole care taker and now they are off to a strange adult and strange little people.

I’m off to a bowling party, and hopefully I will beat the pants off my brother this time!
