Morning Sickness: A Google Streetview Tour

Of all of the blog post topics floating around in my head at any given time, this is the one I've always known I'd have to write. It involves all the things I most enjoy blogging about: my own absurdity, the indignities of pregnancy and parenthood, the things you aren't supposed to talk about in polite company. The topic of today's post is Morning Sickness.

The First Day of Daycare: A Tale of (Parental) Angst and Woe

Mark and I dropped off Avery for her first day of daycare this morning. You could say that the experience didn't bode well for the first day of kindergarten, the first day of high school, or (just cut out my heart right now) college drop off.

Oh... oh wait... you thought I meant Avery? Oh gosh no! Avery was fine. After about 0.5 seconds of leg clinging (squee!) she found a crayon to try to eat and she was all good. There was no wailing. No tantrum. No crawling after us as we left. We didn't even get a lip tremble. No, she just stood there at the teeny-tiny daycare table, holding a crayon in each little fist, deciding whether to put them to construction paper or her mouth. Brave girl.
