Day 4

Today is the Malayna's fourth day in preschool. She hasn't told me that she has a bellyache yet, so I'm hopeful that drop-off will not be too horrible. She's excited that mom-mom will be picking her up and that she'll see her friend Lily. When I talk other parents about her crying when I drop her off, a few of them have told me to "just wait until she doesn't even notice you leaving!" Implying that somehow it's better that she's upset that I'm leaving and that the opposite is worse. Really? Do they think they're making me feel better? As a matter of fact, I can't wait for that day!

You should go to the library and check out a really cute book called the Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn. It's a sweet story about a racoon who hates to leave his mother for school. I think she could relate and might like the remedy!

I LOVE that book - we bought it the other day! We kiss each other's hands before school, and today she kept kissing mine while crying. Poor little thing!

Just wait - it stings when they skip off without even a backward glance at you!! Even worse: The first day you put a kid on the school bus!!! (k)
