Comments: School

Aaah, he'll be OK. From what I can tell The Boy seems to be very intelligent, and he should be able to adapt and survive without much problem.

Let him like school, let home be a place he loves. Did you get a little misty-eyed before, during and/or after the drop-off at the classroom door?

Lots of adjustment, this kindergarten thing. Especially if he doesn't like the girl he has to share a bench with! But I'm sure he'll adapt and do really super. Susanna is still a little unsure about kindergarten, but she is adjusting and doing better. Apparently, being 5/going to kindergarten is a lot more difficult than I remember!!!

The only day of kindergarten I remember was the day I brought my favorite squishy pink bunny eraser for show-and-tell and accidentally dropped it out the window of the school bus (I can't imagine why I was hanging such a prized possession out the window... Kids!) and showed up at Mrs. Lamb's class traumatized and weeping. I'm sure it only stands out because it was a bad day of devastating proportions in an otherwise pleasant kindergarten experience.

Could be worse, Lenise. The kindergarten day that stands out in my mind is the time I got into a fight with a friend (I think he broke something of mine) and I gave him a bloody nose.

On the positive side, it's still a joke among that particular group of friends. I talked to him last year at one point and he said "Man. We still talk about the bloody nose thing, and now my kid is in kindergarten."

Ah, memories of the hazy days of childhood.

I sympathize. When I took my daughter to her first day of pre-school, she was fine and I had sep. anxiety! I even spoke to the social worker who was there for the kids!
