Today Sam had his first day of three year old preschool.
He also started at a new school this year. We moved about 25 minutes away from our old house so it was just going to be too much to continue going to the old school. I was very sad about that because we had such a great experience there. Both kids learned and grew so much. I hope we have the same experience here.
This morning Sam did not want to go to school. When I told him it was time to get ready he ran away from me. When I came to find him he had a mad face and actually yelled, “I am not going to school! I am staying home with Mommy!”. Sam is usually a sweet and polite little man but he was not having it this morning. I just ignored him and started to get him ready. To be honest, I don’t know if that attitude was real or not. I know he was nervous, I could tell that on his face, but he did as he was asked. Once we were ready he was happy to go outside and have his picture made.
When we pulled up for him to get out, his eyes got big and he kept trying to give me hugs and kisses...we had already said our goodbyes a couple of times. I had to push him towards the door so the teacher could get him out of the car. He didn’t cry and walked right in but I felt bad having to give him a little shove out of the car. I can’t wait to go get him and see how his day went. I know he is having a blast. He just likes to “stay home with Mommy”.
