Big Girl Bottle

I have a blue water bottle I carry around with me almost every where I go. My kids at school know my bottle by sight...and now so does Caitlin.

She stares at the bottle and watches the water move inside. After reaching for it for a while I finally let her have it at the park this weekend. She didn't actually get any water from it, but she enjoyed gumming it anyway!


Our first day at day care went as well as can be expected. I cried when we dropped her off. I really didn't expect to, but I did. She was fine right away though...she was attracted to the teacher's glasses as soon as she held her. Honestly I am glad that I get to do the pick up and not the drop off...I lucked out with the better end of that deal. I do not envy the Irishman having to leave her each day...and I know he doesn't either. The ladies that work there are fantastic though and have been there for years and years.

I labled by bottles wrong and I am going to have to use tape on them. I hate the idea of tape on the bottles. I know it is stupid, but that really bugs me. However the bottles have to have her name, contents, date and time prepared AND date and time recieved all written on them. I was just going to use sharpie and clean it off each night but they put tape on the bottle as soon as we got there to "fix" it. Oh well...I'll get over it.

When I picked her up they said she cried at nap times. They hadn't seen the lovie we brought for her in my bag of goodies. Hopefully that will help today. She was asleep when I picked her up...a process that took forever. By the time we woke her, took a picture for the family wall, changed the diaper, talked about the other things they didn't realize I'd sent in her bag, and they reassured me that she was fine it took almost 45 minutes. Add to that a drive home and I was exhasted.

And now we have to do it all again...

I have that same water bottle and my girls love it.

Wow. That's a lot of info to put on the bottles. Bummer that they have to use tape, too. I HATE the idea of tape on them also.

It gets better and easier each time.
