Okay my two daughters started daycare last week for the first time ever.. I have a 3 and 1 year old. The first two days were so good for my 3 year old, but the third day was the total opposite.. She was crying and saying "no daycare" and that she wanted to stay home, which I was in shock because the first two days I literally had to drag her out of there. So the next few days she would just cry and says please mom I want to stay home, granted she spent her whole three years at home with daddy and I so I understand it is a big change. Well last night I told her that we had to take baths and get ready for bed because we had to wake up early for daycare.. she freaked out and said "No mom, no daycare.. daycare is scary" It caught me off guard because I don't understand why she would say this.. They both attend a center in a nice area and the teachers are very nice, they also tell me that she is doing wonderful.. So I don't know if I should be more concerned or is she just pulling my strings?? A part of me thinks that she just wants to stay home so she can do whatever she wants and watch TV all day which at daycare she cant do that... so opinions please!? Has anyone ever experienced this, is this normal?
