I read through alot of the posts where women state stuff like not being comfortable with leaving their babies with "strangers" and honestly, I never felt that way. Sure there have been times I felt sad to leave my kids, sure there are days that I wished I could have stayed home (more for me because the hustle bustle of work/drop off/pick up/lunches/getting up early/cookign dinner late, etc).

Something tells me that Daniel would not survive in Catholic school for a second.

I don't think you are bizarre at all. I think it just means that you found good childcare. Personally, I dont feel bad leaving McKenna at daycare because she's been there for almost 3 years, I completely trust them, and it's almost as if they're her extended family. Plus she loves going to play with her friends and going to class. It's nice to have daycare that is such a good fit.

LIza's a tough kid too and i'm noticing this year she has gotten exactly ONE birthday party invite... so I understand believe me.

she's VERY over the top dramatic (you're stunned I'm sure) and comes on very strong and that puts alot of the girls off -- she wanted a sleepover birthday party and I was dreadingit b/c I don't think other than her best friend many girls would really want to come. But she has AWESOME friends who are boys so i suggested a swimming party where she culd invite her "boy friends" too and she just LIT UP.

phew.

I get the feeling Liza and Daniel are very alike. Daniel is extremely artistic and dramatic. It's funny, because my husband, being the Guy Guy that he is, is surprisingly supportive of exploring the arts

I am with you.
I also wanted to state that when I dropped my baby off at daycare the first few times, I did not cry. My situation was probably a little different than most, but I had recently come out of a pregnancy where so many people were scaring me with so much untrue stuff. I was being warned about multitudes of things, and one of them was that I wouldn't be able to work because I had a child. I heard tales about daycare eating up your whole salary, how you'd loose your job from them calling you all the time to come and get the baby, how they would neglect the children and the babies would get diaper rash from never being changed, etc. When I dropped dd off for the first few times, I felt good, soooo good, that we were able to get on with our lives. I had been on cloud nine since her birth, because all these catastrophes weren't happening the way everyone said they would. I was even able to maintain breastfeeding for a while, even though so many said that would be too hard, too. So many things were happening in our favor. I couldn't be upset.
