Pre-K for my Baby K

We took K to his first day of pre-Kindergarten today. It was "kinda hard." His words. My feelings.

With all the books, puzzles, crafts, and a brand-new playground, I don't think the day was all that hard for K. It was a short morning of singing and playing with his best bud S. He got to use "zissors," which Mummy never allows at home.* And, he had us in tow to help with indoor shoes and cubbies.

It was definitely hard for me.

It was hard to not be furious with K's dad when he mentioned, the night before, all the things K needed for school. (More so, since I had had to miss the orientation meeting due to work.) It was hard to get us organized to be clothed, fed and out the door on time, even with Dear A to watch the baby girl. Most of all, it was hard to see my little baby boy at the playground surrounded by older kids on recess. He looked so tiny.

The next class is un-parented. I think it might be "kinda hard" on both of us.

*In my defense, we have stainless-steel-chop-through-a-raw-dead-bird scissors, so its not like I'm being crazy paranoid.

Such a great time - all that learning and playing. My kids loved, loved, loved playschool at Campus Pre School - way too much fun. And I learned to love it too...

I hoping it works out that way... right now neither K nor I are all that keen on the "come on, come on, hurry up, come on sweetheart, it'll be fun, come on, hurry" morning routine! :-)

For both my kids I found it better to put them in Afternoon pre-school to avoid the morning rush. Just sayin....

@Big Mama....K's still napping in the afternoon and I couldn't give up that moment of sanity, for me & Dear A :-)
