Today was an exciting day! Rory started pre-kindergarten. We were thinking that she wouldn’t be able to go to preschool this year just because of the feasibility of me getting her picked up, dropped off, taken to daycare, all of that. The timing wasn’t working with my work schedule, and I was a little bit disappointed. But last week, there was a last minute cancellation at the one school that would work for us, and we got the spot!
Last night, she had picked out her outfit and told me a million times what she wanted to bring in her lunch. When we got to the school, I was getting her out of the car, and when she saw me grab my camera, I could tell she was a bit annoyed. “We JUST need my backpack, mom,” she said. LOL! I had grabbed a photo at home just in case, but she did let me get a couple more when we got there. I have to admit that I laughed at her reaction as we walked into the school and saw the halls filled with kids. I think she was a bit intimidated by all of the kids she saw there. But as soon as we got to the room, she was off, and didn’t really care if I stayed or left.
And the best part of it all…when I got there to pick her up, she said she wasn’t ready; she wanted to play some more. I reminded her that she had to go to daycare, and immediately her face lit up. “And see Cohen?!” It made me smile to hear her say that. I guess she missed the little stinker.
