Preschool

Ms Thang started preschool yesterday. She alternated between being thrilled about going to her "happy school" and upset that I was making her go. We talked and talked about how much fun she would have and how she would get to ride the bike and listen to stories and sing songs and on and on. We pulled in the parking lot and she started to fuss and cry about not wanting to go. I tried to tell her it would be fun but she wasn't interested in hearing it. I finally said "Listen, you are going to preschool. You can go in there crying and upset or you can go in there in happy, ready to have a good time. How do you want it to be?" She promptly smiled and said "I want to have fun"

She was pleased to pose for a few pictures (only a few because when I tried to take one in front of the building, she told me NO WAY)

She was not pleased that Big S decided to share in her pictures though. They got over it and I found them playing together when I got there to pick her up.

The director said she did fine. She had a mild freak out, part way through the time. The teacher just told her that I was coming back soon and distracted her with something else and she was fine. She was happy to see us but has asked to go back again so hopefully that is a good sign for the future.

LOL I love the last picture. It's very MT. :)

She was ADORABLE when I asked her how school was. "I was a little sad because I missed my mom and dad." Seriously. Too cute.

Aww! yea for MT and starting school! It's a very big thing to be away from mom even if it is just for a few hours.

Yeah for you for a little bit of alone time =)

Hooray for pre-schoolers. I think Lizzie would be a blast to have in class.

So glad to hear that it went ok and she is feeling too "oppressed"
