Today's drop off for Finn was much the same as yesterday. He was tearful, but not crying. We walked Declan to his class line first. I'm trying to time things sl that we are not standing outside saying goodbye for so long. I don't want to just put him in line and run off because many of the parents stand and wait with their kids. But I also don't want this big, prolonged goodbye. So I was hopign that by going to Declan's line first, we could avoid this. Those kindergerten teachers really wait until the bitter end to go in which is foiling my plan.
Ironically, I think once he gets there, he has a good time. Several of the aides made it a point to tell me they dropped in during the course of the day to see what he was doing and each time he was not crying and was engaged in what was going on. Mrs. Angel said he was a little worried at lunch, but ultimately he was fine and he ate most of his lunch, which I always consider a good sign.
My goals is just for each day to be a little better.
