My Heart Outside My Chest

I just dropped Keegan off at daycare. I cried a little when I first got in the car. But then I was okay. Tom is so not worried which helps me feel better. I know we picked a good place, I just love him so much.
I stayed with him there for two hours and watched the routine and the other kids. I let his teacher change and feed him. Right now he is in a room with toddlers but on Monday, when the new babies show up, they will put him in the infant room.
I always think he looks so big but not next to those guys. But he seemed relaxed and enjoyed exploring. Now if I can only stop thinking about the look on his face as I left. Not sad, just unbelievably trusting.

(Edited at 1:50pm) The house is eerily quiet.
