went about how I imagined it would when I first signed her up for this 2 day a week, 3 hour ‘mother’s day out’ program.
Despite all that we did to get her excited, she was hysterical when we left. While the other kids whimpered quietly, she was screaming, “NO! I NOT GO TO SCHOOL!”
We pulled up a little early and got to see her going inside from the playground, holding her sippy cup and the hand of another little girl. It warmed our hearts.
Then we walked inside, only to hear her shrieking in her classroom and see the teacher make an exasperated face at the TA about her. Upon her dismissal, we were informed that she cried pretty much the whole time…. except for recess.
Hope it gets better soon.
I think I’m going to need to send small gifts for the teachers every day, so they will like her.
At least she looked real cute in her apple backpack…. before the puffy red eyes.
