First off I want to thank you all for your encouraging comments and well wishes, it's buoyed me up immensely...thanks! Day two is over because my sweet big girl is in bed for the night. I was pretty worried about today because I've been warned that the second day is usually worse. Well, I was pleasantly surprised that instead of an hour of crying and screaming, it only took about 15 minutes!! Yay! Kassidy stayed home with Dad today and I was pretty worried when I came home from work and Kevin said there was no napping while I was gone. Yikes! But I actually think that the lack of nap helped Kassidy to exhaust herself much quicker. I did have to rock her to sleep tonight, which is pretty rare for our independent girl. We've had much less asking for the binky today because I think she remembers that it's "brokie". I'm so proud of my big girl and her ability to deal with difficult situations. Hopefully we only have a day or two more before she'll put herself to sleep again without the binky.
Our little family is currently living in California, as Kevin has been attending pharmacy school here. He just graduated in June and we are on the job hunt! It's exciting and scary all at the same time. We have three children, Kassidy is 6, Korbin is 2, and McKinley is 9 months. We're missing family and friends, but making new ones and we love it! We love life and hope to catch up with friends, old and new, through our blog :)
