Today is the first day for Thyl to go to the daycare center of the VUB. It is hard to think about it but this will probably be the longest time he'll be without his parents since he's born... and today is only half a day. It is the first 'letting go' we have to do of him and I have to keep myself from calling them to check if everything is ok. It is what comes with the responsability of being a father maybe but I have to realize that from now on we'll have to 'share' our baby with the people who will take care of him there. Soon enough he'll start to recognize them as well as us and develop a familiar feel about both the daycare center and home. It leaves me a bit jealous, as if I am giving up some of the personal contact I have with my baby.
