Thanks for the welcome back! Good to be back. Won't say I don't miss Hawaii, though...
So after her rough night of adjusting, Maiya seems to be back to herself. She slept just over 12 hours last night, and ended up being late for school today because she slept in, hah. My poor girl, though... Before school, she had NO clinginess or separation anxiety. The first day we went to check out her school, she looked at me and said "Mom, when are you going to leave?" Now that she goes there regularly, she's started getting a bit clingy when I drop her off. She tells me she doesn't like this school, because I can't stay with her, and she doesn't want to go. I told her all I do is work when she is gone, and she tells me she'd rather stay home and work with me!
Myles, it is not easy, for sure! That's why we get out of the house EVERY SINGLE DAY. I couldn't literally stay home with her, even one day!
Oh poor Apple! Lesson hard learned for Kai, I'm sure. I'm glad you found it in time and she is healing.
Our heat wave here supposedly got up to the triple digits while I was gone, which is pretty rare. Now that I'm back, though, our highs are high 60s to low 70s... Boo! Naturally, the only two weeks we'll get of hot weather- when I would happily go swimming- were while I was gone. Figures!
