Yesterday was Kayleigh’s first day back to school. She was all excited to go, couldn’t even stand still for her photo. So happy, happy as she got in the car, pointed and screeched at the school, walked in all proud… then grabbed my leg before we could fully enter the classroom. She then refused to let go and after it became too long of this behavior and the teacher pried her off of me, she started crying big and loud. She had been holding on so tight that I literally almost went down to the floor when the teacher pulled her away. She was still crying as we walked down the hall but it must have been a good day in the end because she was quite happy when I picked her up. She quickly turned very cranky though, guess she worked and played hard.
Today was easier, no tears when I dropped her off. I thought she was going to cry, just inside the door she stopped and turned toward me. But this time, she handed me her half-eaten crackers with cream cheese and indicated that she was good.
Here’s hoping that this semester will bring some improvement. Her teachers said today that she said “hamburger” but I really find that hard to believe…
Now, E-boy, he’s back to school the day after Labor Day.
