First Day at Preschool

AA enjoyed her first day of preschool (3 year olds). We have her signed up to go twice a week.
She cried a little when Daddy left, but her teacher said that after a few minutes of sitting in her lap, AA was up and playing with all the new toys at the school.
I went to work. I was at work and missed all the wonderful "firsts". What a suck Mom I am! BUT, Daddy was very good to remember to take before pictures; leaving the house for school (we were told to dress her in play clothes).


AA checked out the school room before Daddy left her there for the day (9:30-1:30).


We are pleased that there are only six kids in a classroom with the teacher. And, AA was successful giving the "sign" to her teacher when she needed to use the potty - so no problem there!

The schedule for the month shows lots of learning time for shapes, alphabet, colors (crayon time to color) along with a science topic (fruits is a science topic?), book and story time plus a special prayer each week. This week she is learning to say: Father, We thank you for our hearts, legs and arms and for our good food. AMEN! She brought home a cut out heart to show us.

Daddy said she lit up with a huge, bright smile; so very excited when she saw him coming to pick her up! She was ready with book bag, pictures and projects she had completed. Wow, what a relief. I was stressed!

Now, will she get upset going back for her second day knowing that Daddy is leaving her again? We shall see..... Stay tuned!

You do realize that college is just around the corner right?!?!?

I cannot believe she will be 3 in just a few shorts weeks. What a blessing pre-school sounds like and what fun for her to be with others her age to interact and grow.

The husband missed the Tongginator's first day of school as well. Somebody's got to go to work. That does NOT make you a "s**k mom." You are an incredible momma!!!!! Congrats to AA on her first day of preschool.

You are an awesome mom!!! So glad AA had a great first day. We had a couple of issues the first day, but then had an awesome second day. I completely understand the nerves!!!!

Dita said...

Yaaaaaaaa!!! Looks like AA had a wonderful time.

I'm always the dropper offer and her Daddy gets to be the picker upper AND the recipient of those yummy great big smiles and hugs.

They're growing up fast! Elizabeth started pre-school on Monday, 8/31/09. Check out the pics when I picked her up at my FB. She goes by Faith there (Elizabeth is really her second name) and she's going 3 days a week.
