Wearing her back pack and holding her lunch bag.
Realizing that the backpack needs to come off!
Running to me since I wanted a picture....gave up the backpack and opted to hold just the lunch box......Lovey Lamb comes to school with us, some kind of comfort is best at this point.
This is from my cell phone....at school...looking a bit sad, Mom was a bit frazzled and trying not to cry. She held Lovey Lamb off and on all day, and cried off and on all day(apparently most of the kids cried off and on all day).
All in all for never being away from family (me, glenne or her grandparents have always taken care of her) she did well for the first 2 days. Her 2nd day she knew where she was going when we got there and started freaking out a bit. I went in and showed her the toys but she was not letting go of me, so when i moved she cried. Her one teacher came and showed her some toys and picked her up so I could leave. As I was leaving I heard her crying Mama, Mama. She did do better on the 2nd day. She played and interacted with the other kids and did not cry much.
When leaving school the playground is right next to the steps so I can stand there and see her. I of course watched a few mins to make sure she was ok.....and she is. She has 2 teachers ....and the director is in and out all day too. There are only 8 kids in her class too. I know she will love it and I will be sad the day she runs in and does not say good bye......as I am sad now when she cries cause I leave her! The day she runs to play at school will be a good sad day. :-)
