First day at kindergarten

A very Happy New Year to everyone, I know I had been MIA for some time. Pardon me, as I was busy with my daily dreamlike nausea and puke. I was also busy scooting around for a new school as it’s about time for the little sheep to attend school.

Wednesday: First day at school.
The sky were still gloomy and dark outside, I woke bb up while he was soundly asleep. It was the first day of school on wednesday. He dragged himself up while I get ready his uniform. He was somewhat jolly well happy carrying his Bob the builder’s bag and put on his Mickey’s socks and shoes before heading to school. All excited, including mommy and daddy.

They were already many little cuties at school when we arrived. Some were sobbing softly, some loudly while others happily entertained themselves with toys. I helped bb with his shoes in the shoe bag and sent him to class right away and I left him. He was perfectly cool and played with toys when I peeked through the window. Later I went in to the class again to chat with his form teacher and say goodbye to him. That’s when the horror scene started. He pretended not to hear me at first but facial expression changed immediately when I was ready to leave. He clang on to me and started crying hysterically. My heart ached seeing this, however I got to be firm. I left him crying in his teacher’s arm.

Today is the third day, he was very reluctant and already crying at home refused to put on the uniform, Sri has to coax him to put it on and he was so manja, he wanted Sri to piggyback him to the car. The moment my car reached the school, he started crying, tears were already thick in the car. Gosh! I feel so bad but darling, fees are not cheap; it’s for the better of you.

I really hope that he could do better at the following week. Does your kid cry their way to school? What do you do to calm and soothe them?

I LOVE THE SCRAP.... VERY nice...

As for bb crying... eee... after a while he'll be over it... trust me... i know... i was a crier when i went to school... try and reassure him, saying things like, u'll miss him, and u promise u will come after school and pick him up as soon as u can.... I saw that working for a few cases.... :D

Opps, sounds familiar!

It might take time.. but remember, don't force him into what he cannot get used to.. since my boy is still young, I decided to try again later.. :)

Good luck dear!

He will adapt eventually. The trick is to get them acquaintance with a favourite teacher. Like my Emily, she has her favourite teacher and always looking forward to go to school to see her. However it takes times, she stopped crying after 2-3 weeks. We just have to continue to encourage them.
