My daughter started pre-school this past Friday.
She will go here in the fall for “official” preschool, so I figured she might enjoy taking their summer camp preschool a couple days a week so she will be fully acclimated and ready for the fall program.
On her first day she was a little apprehensive, but I assured her I would stay until she felt “comfortable”.
“Mom”, she would say as we talked about it, “it might take me a little while to get comfortable. You might need to stay until I talk to a few people”.
I assured her I would stay. She continued to affirm that I would remain until she was comfortable.
After we arrived, she nervously exited the car and took my hand, walking with me inside the building.
We were immediately greeted by a very friendly gal who engaged Hannah and said it was “gym” time!!
Hannah followed after her without so much as a “bye, mom!” or even a glance in my direction.
I however lingered a few extra minutes, watching her play.
Turns out, I was the one who needed to get “comfortable”.
