This was us prior to going to "Meet the Teacher" day at our MDO program and truth be told, I was a hot mess thinking the girls would be scared/shy/apprehensive, but low and behold, they surprised me (just as they do all the time) and calmed my fears by their excitement and independence once we were in their classrooms.
My wild woman (AKA Carson) has me on edge as we have been dealing with major bouts of separation anxiety lately and I am nervous about how she will do in this brand new environment. I know once we get into a routine, it will become second nature and she will love her teachers just like CC did last year, but I am being honest with myself in knowing there will probably be some tears shed these first few weeks and this new transition will take time for all of us to adjust to.
On the other hand, Caroline was her natural sweet self when she went into the two year old class and started playing with all the toys, books, and other fun goodies. Of course she was disappointed when it was time to say our goodbyes and said "momma, I stay at skewl"...I think she will be just fine. :)
So say a little prayer for us today if you don't mind. At first I was thinking it would be for the girls, but now I think this mama could use a little lifting up, too..."the days are long, but the years are short".
