Aviana started summer preschool this past Tuesday and it was such an emotional week for the both of us. I felt awful leaving her crying in the arms of a stranger. It was probably one of the hardest things I've ever done. Her second day was on Thursday and it was even worse. The teacher had told us to go ahead and leave and Avi kept yelling at me saying "Mommy, I just want a kiss! I just want a kiss mommy!" It broke my heart that I had to just walk away from that (I had already walked back to her twice to give her a kiss). I had a breakdown and cried like a baby after leaving her classroom. I'm even crying now just thinking about how awful I felt. It was horrible. She goes back next week and I'm really hoping this gets easier for both of us.
She also started swim lessons and that went a little better. She was nervous and scared to get in the pool with the teacher at first, but eventually got comfortable and started to love it. We got really lucky with her swim teacher who was so sweet and patient with her. Avi already keeps asking when she gets to go back!
Last thing, I started my gestational diabetes diet this week and I have to say that I really don't think it's that difficult. The hardest part is cutting out the "white" carbs. No french fries! Ugh. I was nervous about having to poke my finger four times a day but it isn't as bad as I thought. So far my blood sugar levels have been pretty normal. There was one day where (after dinner) where my levels spiked, but other than that everything has been good. Someone mentioned to me that staying active will help with my blood sugar levels so I'm going to start incorporating an easy workout routine into my schedule. Please let me know if you have any other recommendations to help with this GD. The doctor recommended eating plain greek yogurt as a good source of protein but it grosses me out! It's so sour! What are some good foods that I could add to it to make it taste better?
Anyways, sorry for rambling and making this so long. I have been getting great feedback from you all and I hope you continue to leave advice in the comments as they truly do help.
Hope you enjoy your long weekend!
