Ashlyn's first day of preschool was not exactly what I had hoped for. She cried. You know, that hysterical crying with big tears rolling down her cheeks. It broke my heart to leave her in the classroom so upset.
At our preschool, the teacher calls the parent if the child is inconsolable after 20 minutes. I left her at 8:50am.
Once 9:10 came and left without the dreaded phone call, I breathed a sigh of relief. When I picked her up, she looked so happy and kept talking about the "cookies" that they had for a snack.
So we survived Day One. Hoping the drop off Wednesday goes a little smoother.
