First Time You Let Go
Sooner or later you're going to hand your baby over to somebody else, turn around, and walk out the door, gritting your teeth as your child shrieks behind you. Now you can enjoy some of that "free" time that sounded so good just a few minutes ago. But can you? You've been dreaming of this moment, but now that it's here, you're having second thoughts. Get over it. What the babysitters and preschool teachers have always told you is true -- the baby stops crying once you're out of sight and gets down to the exciting business of tasting all those new toys. Now stop blubbering and go have a cup of coffee.
