I am so happy today, DD had her first day of Occasional Care all by herself (without me present, that is) and didn't cry! She was playing with all the other kids and giving lots of cuddles to the staff...she even let one of her help her walk! She usually doesn't like strangers, at all! She was sooooo good! And she's had a little drink of milk and is now happily asleep. Ok, so it was only an hour, it's still early days, but it's a better start than some of the other children there!
I just need to share this, because I'm so proud
However, there was one Mum there filling out forms or whatever and she saw I was in the waiting lounge (I waited around outside the first 10 mins to make sure DD was OK) and the Mum said to me that DD is a bit young for this (she's 9mths) and gave me a dirty look and a tsk tsk! W.T.F Seriously, there are some rude people out there, she has no idea of my circumstances of why my DD and I are there, I was so close to telling her to STFU, but I just said, "Well, it is occasional care...so I'm only doing it when I can't find a minder for DD"
Just put a bit of a damper on my mood, but meh, I'm so proud of DD ^_^
Has anyone ever said anything to any of you?
