my little guy has been going to his childcare/preschool center since he was 3 months old. . .today when i dropped him off. . .he cried. . .for the first time. . .
he is in the process of transitioning to the pre-k classroom, and today was the first drop-off there
i felt so badly for him and i knelt down and gave him a giant mommy hug. . .we walked hand-in-hand to his old classroom (which is mess because they are cleaning the floors) to peek in then agreed we'd walk back to his new room for drop-off. i remained upbeat but was sympathetic to his sadness.
the teacher, Miss Ginger is wonderful, sweet and kind - with a little boy of her own at the same school. she offered Owen a computer game to play - something he enjoyed when he visited the room yesterday.
he agreed. . .but was still sad and clingy. . .i could feel my own tears. . .even though I have been dropping him off at this school for 4 years. . .he went over to the computer. . .a little frown where his bright sunny smile usually is. . .and my heart broke just a tiny bit. . .
change is hard. . .for adults and for kids. . .how do you help your kids cope with change?
catch you soon -
