The past few weeks has been full of firsts. Lily started Kindergarten, Emmy started preschool, and I began teaching preschool.
It seemed like Lily had two first days of school. Her first day was 45 minutes long, and a parent (me) had to stay with her.
The day after that short session, I took Lily to school for an hour-long assessment with her teacher. Since the teachers were testing all the Kindergarteners, we had to wait three whole school days for Lily to go back to school. Her second first day of school finally arrived, and after all that waiting, I didn’t blubber like I thought I would.
After seeing big sister going off to school, a week later it was finally Emmy’s turn. Yippee! Not only that, but Mommy started school on the same day as Emmy. I started teaching preschool in a different classroom at Emmy’s school. Sorry, no picture of me on my big day!
So far, no tears have been cried by anyone who has to go to school. And we weathered just one temper tantrum by an unnamed 5 year old, which really wasn’t about school but rather something about Mommy being unreasonable. Ha.
