.... but I did!!! Shutup Crying

Aaralyn's first day of kindie, I cried before we left the house, I cried at the school as soon as one of the teachers said to me "wow, you're doing good mom", right about then I lost it again Crying

Aaralyn was fine, with just a little bit of nervousness when she started seeing all the bigger kids coming in while the kindergartners were waiting in line to go in their classroom. She did say to me at one point after hearing alot of the children's mom's speaking to them in Spanish "but mommy, I don't speak spanish very well" LOL.. I don't told her not to worry that the kids and the teachers would all speak English. She also said to me, "mommy, why are there so many brown kids here?" Confused Embarassed even though we had a talk about that last night, I told her we would talk more about that later after school/work.

The staff all seemed really lovely and all the kids were saying hi to all the teachers and principal (head of school) and the teachers new everyone's names from all different ages, I was impressed by that very much!

So my little baby is now officially a school kid! With a back pack almost the size of her to prove it! Wink

Aww bless Tammy, I know i will just the same when Lolly has to go to school. Upset Although i have a sneaking suspicion that she will love it and just run off into the crowd shouting 'Bye Mum'! LOL. Rolling Eyes

I'm so glad that everything went well though and she seemed to go in fine. It sounds as if the teachers have it all sussed and are great. Thumbs Up
I hope Lolly's school will be just as good when she gets to that stage.
As for the back pack, i remember those days well. I love seeing all the little tiny's going to school carrying back packs bigger than than them, they look so cute. Love
I hope you got some pics of her in her uniform hun? I bet she looked so smart! Xx

It is a big milestone! I'm so proud of how brave she was, even after she saw me cry, she put her hand on mine and patted it Love ... I told her they were tears of happiness.

It's just killing me that I can't call anytime and check on her like at the pre-school. She was not feeling well yesterday so I hope she's getting through ok.

It's also going to be her first time in the after school care program which she will be from 2:30pm until about 5:30pm when I get her after work. I hope she does ok with that too! I met the director and the assistant the other day and I really liked them. We walked in unexpected and both were sitting and helping the kids there do their homework.

So, she goes full day today and then doesn't go back until Wednesday but then will be full days monday-friday after that.

Thanks for the tissues Alex Thumbs Up

Well guys, she had a great first day!! Was very happy to see me when I got there to pick her up (along with Mike and Amber) but she wasn't ready to leave the after school care center either... that made me happy Happy

She acted as if it was no day out of the ordinary LOL, just another day at kindergarten! I was so worried about her today and how her day was going, I should have known she'd be totally fine. The director and the assistant at the after school program both commented on shyness Rolling Eyes nicely sarcastic because she's sooooooo not shy LOL... of course she had hugs for all the kids there before we left Love That's my sweet girl!!! Thumbs Up

Aww, Hooray! So glad she had a fantastic day hun. I reckon she had a ball. Clapping
It must be a relief for you knowing she enjoyed it. can't imagine how hard it must be for people who's littluns cry and say they don't want to go. How do you make them when they like that? Xx
