Sierra’s first day of school

Sierra started preschool on January 31st. At just a few months past her second birthday, I don’t feel that she really needs to go to school yet, but since her baby brother is going to be born any day now and I won’t be able to keep taking her to Mommy & Me classes, she’s going two mornings a week, just so that she can have some regular social interaction with children her age.

I was worried about how Sierra would do at school. She is very attached to me and, before school, had never been left with anyone other than a relative. For many weeks leading up to school, we talked about how she doesn’t have to cry because Mommy always comes back, and that some of her friends might cry, but that was okay. As we got closer to her start date, I began to feel more confident that she would be okay, but I was still worried about leaving her. Then the big day came, and when I walked her into that room of screaming 2-year-olds, the look on her face was priceless. She looked confused, almost bewildered, as if to say, “What in the world is everyone carrying on about?!?” My (little) big girl has not shed one tear in her classroom since school began, loves her teachers, and gets so excited about working on projects and going to the gym at school. I’m so proud of her!
