I'm not a small talk person outside of close friends. Not at work, not at the park, etc.

So this carries over to daycare drop-off, pick-ups. Sometimes I leave and have this awful feeling wondering if the teachers think I'm rude, don't care about my son, etc. I'm curious how you approach it?

I usually say good morning, and pass along anything important (etc: he already had breakfast), then I'm gone. This morning I have felt awful bc there were several people in the room and I did nothing more than make eye contact across the room with his teacher. We also often struggle with crying drop offs so I try to get the hell out before he has time to realize what's happening.
