today is the first day of my preschooler. her schedule of class is from 8am-10am. i was surprised that we didn't have a "drama session"-no crying, no tantrum, no peeping from the classroom's window. i'm happy she met new friends and this is a start of her gradual independence do you remember your child's first day of school?

i think it was more traumatic for me: two weeks or crying, trembling, shreaking from my little boy. two weeks of me being in the room with him all through his classes. his second year of schooling will start on tuesday but i bet he wouldn't cry anymore.

My daughter's first day of school was when she was five years old and starting kindergarten. I was so scared about that day, I didn't know what I was going to do while she was home with me and I also didn't know how she was going to deal with it because it was the first time that she was away from everyone that she was familiar with. I walked in with her on that first day and she did great, shy at first, but that is her typical personality. After that, she was fine and she loved her teacher and classmates.

I do not have any child yet but I happen just to witness some drama that you are expecting to happen between you and your own daughter. The child was really crying hard that she won't let her parent live her side so the parent decided to stay on the class until the end of the period. I do not know what happens next on the other day.

Oh yes, I remember my sons first day of preschool like it was yesterday! He also didn't give me any quarrels at all that morning. He was happy to get to school and meet his teacher and classmates and he just had a heck of a day. At the time I had 3 other children, a small baby who was crawling, I don't remember his exact age, a 2 year old girl and 3 year old boy. Luckily I had a friend with me because the 2 year old and 3 year old were the ones I had trouble with. Once at the school they played for a few minutes with the others until we had to leave and that's where the trouble began. My friend and I literally had to drag those children out of the school house, screaming and crying. They could not understand why in the world mommy was leaving bubby behind. One lady commented as we were trying to get them to the car, "Oh, they don't want to go to school" and my friend told them, "No, they are crying because they want to stay with their brother." It was quite a site! [b][/b]CICILIA and DANTE'S NANA
