Brooklyn Decker's Emotional Video Sums Up the Struggle That Is the First Day of Daycare

The model and actress posted a video of herself sobbing after dropping her toddler Hank at daycare for the first time. 

Model and actress Brooklyn Decker just shared a super-honest video with her followers. In the clip, the 30-year-old is driving and sobbing, talking to someone on the phone about having just dropped her nearly 2-year-old son Hank off at his first day of daycare.

Alongside the emotional video, Decker wrote, "Hank's first day of daycare was the WORST. For me. It was the worst for me. He was completely thrilled. He didn't even turn to say bye. 'Peace out, mom'" Ugh! Talk about tearing at your heartstrings.

“It’s horrible,” Decker says in the video, wiping away tears. “Oh my gosh, he just walked off – he was totally fine! ... There was this sweet woman, she just grabbed his hand and was like, ‘Okay,’ and they just walked away.”

So many moms have been there! It's anything but easy parting ways with your L.O. But as one of her loved ones in the clip pointed out, the reason Hank was A-OK is because Decker is an awesome mom who's raised a strong little boy! Cheers to that.
