*I participated in the National Pork Board Porksgiving program as a member of One2One Network. I received compensation but all opinions are my own.
I remember the first day I left Miss K at daycare like it was yesterday. The day is still fresh in my mind. I was leaving my baby behind and heading off to work and it felt terrible. I had a 20 minute drive to work and all I thought of was her, I proceeded to work 8 hours and all I thought of was her, I had a 20 minute drive home and all I thought of was her. Get the drift? I could not get out of that door fast enough on my first day back from maternity leave. The little girl was waiting for her Mom and I was bound determined to get there stat. End of story. People do not get in my way when I’m on that mission!
Luckily for me I was blessed with an amazing daycare Mom. A woman that I have grown close with and shared the ups and downs of motherhood with. She’s there to kiss the boo-boos, give hugs and encouragement, and reinforcement when they need it while I’m at work. And most of all love on my sweet girls as much as she can.
She makes it easier to get in the car and drive away every morning from two of the most precious things in my life. I know they are in great hands and they love her to the moon and back. In fact, sometimes they love her a bit too much! For example, when I come to pick them up and they don’t really want to come home with Mommy. Or when it’s the weekend and Miss K asks if she can go see her because she misses her. It breaks my heart and warms my heart all at the same time!
To all daycare providers out there, thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us Moms out! You are trusted with the most precious of things every day and we are so grateful for all the patience, loving and nurturing you give our kids day in and day out. It’s not an easy job and we know that! You make a difference in so many young lives!
Today I am here to say “Thank You!” to my daycare provider. She goes above and beyond the call of duty from the Halloween costumes she crafts my kids, to the baby doll bed she made for Miss K to the cookies she sends home for Daddy. She has no idea how much I appreciate her every day!
We are also here today to celebrate “Porksgiving”! You might wonder what “Porksgiving” is exactly? It’s celebrating the holiday season and those people in our lives that give back in inspired and unexpected ways!
