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!
