Hailey started preschool on Thursday. The day after she turned 3. A year earlier than her oldest brother and 3 months earlier than the other. I was nervous and I was scared. I tried to hide it from her. She seemed excited. We have been watching signing times school video for the last few weeks. It talks about the teacher, students and paying attention. Hailey was in love with her backpack and loves seeing the bus pull up outside picking up and dropping off her brothers.
The first day, the OT met us at the front door and led us into the classroom before anyone else came in. Hopefully to get Hailey acclimated to room before the chaos of the rest of the class filing in. Hailey was apprehensive and cried a little. I left at that point. I wasn't helping the situation. We received a good report that evening. The tears stopped shortly after mom left the room. Friday, she went again. This time with no apprehension and no tears. Whew...mom couldn't have handled more tears. This week will be her first full week. I'm crossing my fingers :-) For the record...mom hasn't cried...yet.
