My girl started school last Thursday.  *Thank you to everyone who has shown such support through emails, tweets, and comments.  It's so wonderful to have you as part of the extended family*  I wasn't there for the first ever drop off, as I was at an audition.  But Andrew dropped her off.  She didn't want to go.  She resisted going into class, and eventually, when everyone was inside, he had to place her in class and just close the door.  When he left she was sitting in a corner sucking her thumb.

But when we picked her up, she was happy and smiling, and told us excitedly about the things that she did that day.  The teacher told us she was right into everything and had no problems.

Then the next morning came.  I had to drop her off by myself.  She didn't want to leave the house - hiding under a blanket for protection.  I had to threaten her : go to school, or sit in your room all day.  She went to school.  Cried on the way there, cried when I tried to take her to her class.  Hid behind me.  I had to slowly push her towards the door over a period of five minutes, until she was just inside then I had to leave quickly.  My last sight of her that morning was her crying after me.

Picking her up, she had a great day again. Went to the library, played, again the teacher said a fabulous day.

So this is what gets me.  She has great days, but cries and doesn't want to go in the morning.

*Sigh*  

*Double sigh*

    1. Thank you. I thought this dress was stunning when I saw it. It's also really breezy for riding the bike in heat and humidity - which I tend to do often :)

    1. Thanks. Sometimes, you discover really great art and mural work on the most unexpected of places. Once there was a stunning garage door!

  3. Started my baby boy at day care a few weeks ago. I've had the same thing. He weeps and wails when I say good bye, but then has a great day. It actually got worse for a week (he started crying before we went in to the building on the worst day). But it has been getting easier. Each time I drop him off, he cries less and he's more excited about getting started in the classroom and playing with the other kids. And when I pick him up now, he happily shows me cool things in the room. I think it just takes time for the kiddos to get used to the new place and new people; they need us to show them that we trust the place where they are and the people who we are leaving them with. But I feel for you. I'm not sure I've ever felt worse than when my baby boy is wailing for me and I turn my back and walk out. Such a horrible feeling. But they let me call to find out how he is doing, and he's always happy and smiling within a few minutes of me leaving. So it seems it's much worse for me than for him...
