Tuesday was a rough morning for Mommy and Macy. As I previously mentioned, she has been having a hard time adjusting. The morning of, she repeated over and over again that she did not want to go. She cried the whole way there. When I took her in and sat her next to the teacher, she was reaching out for me and crying. It broke my heart. I actually left there in tears because I felt so bad leaving her. I just kept thinking, “Maybe she is too young for this.”
But, three hours later, when I went to pick her up, she was happy as could be. This was the first time she was all smiles as I picked her up. The teachers reassured me that she had her best day yet and didn’t cry at all after I left. She also participated in all of the group activities, which made me very happy.
Today, we had a few moans and groans before the drop-off, but once we were there, she was fine, and once again the teachers said it was a day with no tears! I’m glad that I was able to stick it out and trust the teachers advice (who are wonderful!), because I think (and hope!) that from here on out it will only be fun and learning. No more tears from Macy OR Mommy.
Until Christmas break when we have to go through separation anxiety all over again.
