I’m lying in bed , typing this , beside a sleeping 3 year old and 5 year old . Both cried going to school and play school today . Both , had no problem going in with dad ! Mam also had to work today so I was late for that too !
I had long chats this evening , but both are adamant that they miss me too much and so they will not be going to school tomorrow ! Oh and my husband goes away working tomorrow too !
I know from previous experience with my daughter that she was always fine , when I left it ,was the actual act of separation , that she found difficult ? But it’s not any easier to deal with now .
I found these poems on the Internet I thought they were adorable and reassuring . Most of us are in the same boat ,lost at sea looking for comfort from other parents .
K is for Kindergarten—hip, hip, hooray.
I is for imagination we use everyday.
N is for numbers—we know one, two, three.
D is for drawing, the best you can see!
E is for exercise to keep our bodies strong.
R is for reading books all day long.
G is for good friends. We made more each day
A is for the alphabet we know how to say.
R is for remembering everything we learned.
T is for treats every Friday we earned.
E is for excitement. This year we’ve had some.
N is for next year. First grade here we come!
I love this
The First Day
I gave you a little wink and smile
As you entered my room today.
For I know how hard it is to leave
And know your child must stay.
You’ve been with him for five years now
And have been a loving guide,
But now, alas, the time has come
To leave him at my side.
Just know that as you drive away
And tears down your cheeks may flow
I’ll love him as I would my own
And help him learn and grow.
For as a parent, I too know
How quickly the years do pass
And that one day soon it will be my turn
To take my child to class.
So please put your mind at ease
And cry those tears no more
For I will love him and take him in
When you leave him at my door.
Any advice or tips anyone ? I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences
