George’s First Day at Daycare

Yesterday was George’s first whole day at daycare – I can’t believe it, he’s so grown up now! He’s had two settling in sessions last week of a couple of hours at a time but this was his first full day there. It was an emotional roller coaster of a day so I thought I’d…
