Anya’s (second) first day of school

Yesterday was the first day of Anya’s second year at pre-school, although I guess technically last year didn’t count as a year since she didn’t start until December. She’s going three days a week, currently from 9:30 am until 12 pm. We’ve been prepping her for the last week so that she’ll know her teachers’ names, which friends of hers will be in her class, etc., and reminding her that even though I leave her there, Mommy always comes back. Her first day went very well – no tears, and it only took a few minutes before she was comfortable enough for me and Lex to leave. When I picked her up, her teachers told me that she surprised them with how well she speaks, because for the first half of the morning she barely said anything and they thought she wasn’t really a talker yet. Then out of the blue she told them, “My mommy was telling me all about you!” and from that point on she was very chatty. I said she’s often shy and quiet in a big group or unfamiliar situation, and they said they highly doubt that’s going to be an issue this year. Yay!!!
