After Buddy was born, everyone reminded me that they grow SO fast. Frankly, I didn't think a 2lb, 5oz baby was going to go gangbusters on me. Next thing I knew, he was in preschool. He loved it and merrily went along, barely glancing my way when I was leaving on the first day.
Today, I repeated this process with Sissy. Whew, they do grow so fast! She was eager to get started, but she did at least stop long enough for a hug and kiss. Then, she disappeared into the front school doors, being led by her teacher.
Next year, she'll be in all day Kindergarten and I expect she will enjoy that as well and exceed.
Today, one little girl came to ask if they were in the same class. They aren't (I think there are 2 afternoon pre-K classes), but we did find out that they will start Kindergarten at the same school next year (it's different from the pre-K school they're at now). Perhaps they will be in the same class there!
The little girl asked what her name was. Sissy hesitated and then spelled her actual name, then I had to translate because I didn't know if the new girl could put it together and know all the letters (there are only 3, but still).
Anyhoodle, I did NOT cry - but I WAS nervous. In fact, I was so nervous, I almost forgot to drop off the tissues I had bought for the class.
She has been there almost an hour and still no call home, so I'll take that as a good sign!
I'm excited to find out how her first day is! :-)I'm off to do some housework, keep my mind off of stuff, ya know?
