My son’s first day at preschool

by admin on September 18, 2008

Yesterday was a big day in our little household. Our oldest started preschool yesterday. Having never had him in daycare and only a few nights away from home at the grandparents this had the makings for a pretty big change (at least in my life).

He zipped into the classroom and went right over to his teacher to get his name tag. No looking back. No apprehension. He just got right down to business. Made his old dad pretty proud.

After checking on the pickup policies with an assistant teacher I was turning to leave thinking I wouldn’t even get a ‘good-bye.’ He spotted me from the other side of the room and came over to give me a hug and kiss (without any prompting from me, mind you). Such a big guy!

His after school report consisted of this – we played McDonald’s, had a snack, played in the sandbox, and colored. What didn’t he like? The work. Playing was fun, but he didn’t like the work.

I asked him what the ‘work’ was and he responded, “the cleaning up part.” ­čÖé

I told him that if that is the worst part of school, he will do just fine.

Did he make any friends? I asked him who he played with and he said, “everybody, we all had name tags, but I couldn’t tell what they said.” He said he had a good time playing with “a round-headed kid who was really nice” and I asked if his name was Charlie Brown. He didn’t get it.

Hope his day #2 is going well.
