A VERY rough morning

Today was day two of school but it went so much worse than day 1. The novelty is already gone and neither of the girls wanted to go this morning. Grace had herself so worked up that she threw up on herself and ended up with hives. She had to be dragged onto the bus by the bus aide. I spent three hours so worried about her. The bus was 20 minutes late because of a mix up at school so I was totally stressed. When they got home they were both hoarse and red eyed and their journals said that theY BOTH cried the entire day. :D I am so sad that I have to send them like this. All they want to do is stay home and I have to MAKE them go somewhere they don't want to. I am just hoping the adjustment period is quicker than I think it's going to be...

we were told at our preschool that the second day is always worse than the hang in there. If after 2 weeks they are still kicking and screaming and sobbing all day, then perhaps reevaluate their needs, but I bet they adjust before then.

If going to school at this age is too much for them, you can always wait another year and spend this year dropping them off at other, less committal child care places. We did gym day care for 8 months before putting our daughter in preschool and I'm positive that's why she's fine with it.

best of luck!

First off... (HUGS) While Squeaker had a great first day when we dropped him off, no tears - his second day too was filled with tears... and the third day... which also included tears from his Nana. Today was his fourth day and he apparently didn't cry. I hope things get better... hang in there. I know it's tough. It breaks your heart...

Here's to hoping day 3 goes better. I hope they settle in.
And as the first poster said, if its really too much, wait and try again next semester or year. But make sure they give it a fair try. These are girls that you've said take a while to adjust to change.

Bummer :-(

Have you tried any exercises to get them excited about going to school? For example, reading books about going to school (Blue's Clues has one) or movies/shows about going to school. Also, at home you could have the girls draw a picture for their bus driver and teacher and then pump up the idea of giving their creations to their bus driver and teacher the next day. That might help them look forward to going.

It's hard, I know. Hang in there!

M - That is so funny you said that... we spent the afternoon drawing pictures for all the teachers and aides. :D

Great minds think alike!



About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
