Somebody hold me up!

Postby jenn » Wed Sep 08, 2004 01:20 pm

Ms. Jaidyn became a big girl in 1 hour flat!
Here's why:
1. I called a preschool down the street to inquire, just inquire mind you. (11am)
2. They had an opening in the afternoon program. (11:05am)
3. Today was the first day of school.
4. I run to K-Mart to get her the "Pak-Pak" she wanted- and a camera for me. (11:31am)
5. She went to school and never looked back! (12:15pm)
6. The director and teacher have labeled me the "the overbearing mother who won't leave and is sitting in the lobby for 2 hrs"
7. I did it, I left, I'm here at home sobbing and typing looking for human contact for I am soo lonely. (2pm)
8. My stomach hurts! (2:20pm)
9. I have another hour until pick up. (3:15 pm)
10. I couldn't be more proud of her under all this emotion!

Hugs to all the fellow mommy's who joined me this year.

Lots of love preemie parents!

Oh, Jennie, I'm here for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Aw, our little Jai is growing up!!! (; Isn't it so funny how well adjusted our little sheltered ones are? How does that happen?!?!?! You are too funny, waiting in the lobby - sounds like something I would do. ~ so good to hear there is someone else in the world as neurotic as I am. hehe. I, too, have been labeled as psycho mom I'm afraid. I'm sure I'm not IMAGINING the teachers RUNNING when my car pulls into the parking lot...(:

Hang in there!

Wendy,
Thanks a million! This has got to be one of the hardest day in my life as a mommy.
Can you imagine me sending her to 1st grade?!?! All day, no Jai?! Are they nuts?

I made myself a lil' promise to stay with her the first week, then I said I'll stay all day, then I left the room, then hung in the lobby all alone...I noted a problem when the director said she wasn't worried about Jai, but me! So I left crushed. I'm just sitting here in a daze stearing my clock down.
So thanks for listening to my whining...I'm so happy I'm not alone.
How's Noodle doing now? Old pro?

Love n' hugs!!!

Jennie ~

Noodle is so well adjusted it hurts my feelings. She is doing AWESOME in kindergarten, and really likes it. Such a goofball. She really is such a GOOD GIRL. Kindergarten is especially hard for me, though, because I don't get the interaction with the teacher like i did in preschool. I'm not adjusting well. I feel like I should be informed as to how her day was, and what is going on... The teacher just avoids me like the plague. 0: My husband wants to punch me in the nose, he finds me so terribly obnoxious when it comes to my noodle. (;

I can't wait to hear all about Jai's big day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don;t mean to delight in your misery, but....
Misery loves company, so welcome to the grieving school age moms club!!! hehe.

I went thru that last year when Whitney went to preschool. It was tough at first. Now Whitney is in Kindergarten all day except on Fridays. I like the free time this year, but do tend to get a little bored at times.

Good Luck with your first day. Hope it was good for her. Big Hugs for you!!

And, a drum roll please...

She was amazing!
No crying, no naughty moments, nada'!
When I got there she didn't notice me so I just watched for a min.
She was sitting on her circle @ circle time and then got up and handed her new friend a sticker she dropped.
I about died!
Then she noted my pressance and came up with a big hug and kiss and then told me all about her day..."storwee", "swide", and "yea'" to all my questions.
She even made her first dried noodle art project to bring home!
*sniff*
*sob*
Ya' know that one will be off for custom framing by tomorrow ;o)

Only downer was the teacher telling me about her soggy butt.
I didn't make it public that she isn't trained 100%
So I told the teacher it was a big distraction day..I'm sure she'll be ok in a few days and peeing like an old pro like the other kids.

This was the best/hardest day of my life.
I'm all smiles.
Prob' cause she's home now with me, but ya' know what I mean.

Thanks so much for being there for me!
Yup' never woulda' guessed my peanut would be going to school today when we got up.
But all in all it was a great day!!!

And with support like you girls, what more could a girl need.

Hugs and love all around!

AWW Big Girl Jai huh. How did Daddy react to knowing his baby is in school now?
I have boys so I am another story. I wait for the 1150 bus all day and dread weekends. Just kidding. Though I am serious when I say that I cant wait for another year when Isaiah can go with Brother to school. He is a handful and I could use 3 hours of peace.

hugs to you supa-freak!
sometimes I think cold turkey is easier for them
(yet harder on us....we NEED the prep time)
with Peyton it was a revelation that MOMMY HAS A BORING DAY! this week is week 2-so far so good.....but much like you, I lurked. I left and came back to peer in the window and saw my lil man wearing a fireman's hat and eating rainbow goldfish crackers! we beg for some quiet time for ourselves-but when we get it because they are on their way off to school, it's a whole nother story.
major hugs!!!
and hugs to the Pre-K Jai!

Yay, Jai!!!!

And, Yay, Jennie!!!

Good job! It's harder for you than it is for her, as you've found out. The teachers are used to kids "backsliding" with the PT'ing. Nicky didn't train completely until a few weeks after his 4th birthday. I just sent him to school in pull-ups and changed him when he got home until he was trained. I made sure he knew not to go poop at school. (He did twice, but they just took him to the 2yo room to change him.)

I'm so the opposite - I was practically doing cartwheels when I dropped Nicky off. LOL!!! There's gotta be a happy medium somewhere between you and me, Jennie.

Sandra, I hear you lady! I'm eagerly awaiting next fall when Kalen gets to go for two mornings a week. I'll miss him terribly of course, but by then he'll be 2, so I'm sure he'll be pushing a button or two. LOL
