Nevermind me.  I just couldn’t contain my GLEE at having two kids in school at the same time for three consecutive hours. And the best part??? I get to do it again on Friday. And then Monday and then Wednesday and then . . .

C had her first day of school today, and she did GREAT!

caroline first day school 2006 - 1

We had a lot of conversations about how she was not going to behave because she has a habit of making quite a scene when I drop her off places — even places she likes to go. So when she told me yesterday after orientation that she wanted me to stay at school with her, I knew I was in for it.

Consequently, I spent all last evening and this morning prepping her.

Example: You are not going to cry, right? You are not going to cling to Mommy, right? Finally I got her to promise me none of such behavior.

When we entered the classroom this morning, she looked apprehensive, but she was not clingy and didn’t give me any drama. Unfortunately there was a child who was putting on quite a performance. I mean, this kid was Freaking. Out. Poor little guy. C was obviously a little disconcerted by it all, but she still sat down at the table with her teacher and started coloring. I am so proud of her.

She was also very cooperative about getting her “first day of school picture” taken before we left this morning. 

So, we’re off and running with our new fall schedule! So far so good.

  1. Hurray for her and for you! All of mine started back today. My four year old walked in and took over. The four children on the other room who were crying and clinging to their mother’s legs didn’t phase her a bit. Or me. Other then a short prayer of thanks that it was not me!

  2. Oh my gosh! She is so cute!!I know a certain Four year old I could hook her up with in about 25 years or so…hee hee!!My guy started preschool, and boy, it’s like he’s waited his whole life for this. He is so happy now, all the time, and agreeable, and just full of joy. It really makes me feel good.I hope The Princess enjoys school!! (she’s so darn cute!)

  3. She is so cute in her little mary janes! I’m glad she did well. That little freaking out kid….that was my Nicky in every class from Kindergarden till fourth grade! *thank you zoloft*Your little pep worked like a charm. If she was able to sit through the other child crying and not break down…she is one strong princess!It was my nephews first day of K…and me is the epidemy of a mommas boy. My sister prepped him just as you did princess. We were all praying…and fretting over his first day. But he did great too. He came home and said…”I made two friends…didn’t talk when the teacher talked…and wiped my own poopy butt!” We couldn’t ask for anything more than that.Hope your day is relaxing!*peace*
