Too hard.

Today I took my son to pre first day of school. It was only for 1 hour while the kids got to meet each other and their new teacher. I had to leave the room for about 10 minutes, and when I got back he was in a melt down. I wasn’t allowed back into the classroom so I could only observe. He was crying and shaking and coughing on his own tears. It really pissed me off that the teacher wouldn’t let me get him. UGH!! It just broke my heart. He’s only 3 1/2.
I hope he’ll be OK on Thursday, which is the real first day of school. He’ll be one of 16 students with 2 teachers. Last year he was in a class of 9 children, and he wasn’t thrilled by that. Now it’s almost double.
What’s motherhood without a little heartache, right?

    Oh Dear!
    Breathe in . . . . breathe out, now repeat that over and over.
    He’s going to be fine. I know you know it, and it’s hard to see kids get so worked up and not comfort them.
    Before you know it he’ll love it and the worry will be a distant memory.

    Never easy to be a mother. When they grow up there are always other things to worry about…..I would never be without any of my four though 🙂

    I can’t believe the teacher didn’t let you back in. I guess she thought it would be better for him or something. I hope that the real thing will go much easier on him.
