Jen-I love that analogy! Dancing away from each other. That's a perfect way to describe it :)

Erin-It IS hard to put your child in someone else's care! Especially when you don't really know the person. We were thinking how cool it would have been to know the teacher and talk with her before school started.

Kristin-Good luck! I hope it all went well. I love that analogy too-a huge lap to embrace them all!


i am reading this as i get ready to go to bed, wake up and be the teacher for 12 preschoolers on their first day of school...if only i had 24 arms and a lap as big as the sea to hold them all...

and thank you for the chuckle.


Oh the screaming. I know it well...not from my own kids, but from my students. Kids have this magical sense that "If I scream about going to school I won't have to go." And, more often than not, parents give into it. It's hard to hand off your child to another adult and put your trust in your child's teacher that the screams will abate. Usually very quickly.

You are such good parents, and this is so, so hard! But it really is a weaning process and the three if you WILL figure out how to dance away from each other and then back together will get better! It sounds like you have some great teachers to help!
