I'm so sad ;(

As I am putting away Mikka's art/crafts this week, as I look at them I can't help but feel some twitch on my heart... sigh...

Thursday night, our daycare lady called me to break her news that they are moving out of state in 2 months because her husband found a good job offer in Pensylvania. He did try to look around for a job locally so they could keep the daycare and wouldn't have to move but that didn't workout for them.My heart broke as Mikka and the other kids in her daycare (there's 2 other girls who go to her and an 8 month old boy) love love love her so much! She's their 2nd mom pretty much. Plus the care she has for the kids is just unbelievable!

Mikka learned so much from her - crafts, reading books, pretend plays, dress-up, singing, dancing, puzzles and a whole bunch of other fun stuff they do everyday. I'm not one of those crafty moms so imagine how proud I am whenever my daughter comes home with crafts and artworks she did at Ms Terrie's. Regardless whether its just a page of coloring book with my daughter's scribbles and doodles or some paper with stickies, I feel so lucky that our daycare lady's commitment to stimulate the kids learning in every possible way is just remarkable!

The picture on the right shows 2 of Mikka's "artworks" that always make us smile and be proud of our little girl. She did them with the help of Ms Terrie of course! In a couple of months Ms Terrie and her family are leaving and I don't know how it's going to impact the kids. I hope they're still young enough to get traumatized by this.

Anyways, now we're on the lookout again for another in-home daycare as daycare centers are not even an option for us. We're not putting the kiddo in a daycare center, period. The small in home daycares is what we think is best for her until she's ready for preschool.

Preschool... wow, that's like next year already! Somebody stop the time from flying sooo fast!
I know there are other stuff going on around that are way more sad than this... but I'm just human, come on. We come to love Ms Terrie and her family and them leaving just really broke my heart ;(
