What's a Ning Ning?

Mummy~Hood: I left Noal for the first time at daycare today- I thought I might die...Why is it so unbelievably hard to leave your baby? Before I had Noal, I just assumed I would be that mum who would want to go back to work & wouldnt have a hard time but Im absolutely not...

So, as you all know from reading this blog or knowing me- Im a big softie mum...Tons of cuddles, kisses & doing things in a way that feels right and comfortable for both Noal & I...If you read about how I tried to transition Noal from co-sleeping to his crib, you will understand that I couldnt just drop him off at daycare and hope for the best...Therefore, like the crib transition we took daycare at a slower pace that made me more comfortable...A few hours everyday for a few weeks with me there so he could get comfortable with the workers & the environment- And then today a few hours on his own, tomorrow all day on his own & Monday when I go back to work its full force...

Im happy to report Noal did great- The worker was impressed with his eating abilities, no shocker there- My boy loves his food...Hes obsessed with the slide in the playground & played catch all day with the other little boy...Only time he was upset was when she tried to get him to nap & he would have none of it- Just kept calling out Mum Mum and crying...KILLS ME...He also would do something & be all proud of himself & then just shout out "Mum" like he does at home to get me to watch...
She was also really confused because all morning, especially around naptime he kept saying Ning Ning over & over...She asked me if that was his dogs name or something and I busted out laughing and had to explain that my good friend Jenns family for some reason decided to call breastfeeding “Ning Ning and it just stuck with all our friends & our babes...So, of course my happy little eater was calling out for them...Too funny...
 That little story & seeing how very excited he was when he saw me come through the doors made my heart so happy...God Im going to miss the day to day with my little man...Does it get easier?
