Some parents worry about their children heading off to school, or daycare, because of the tears their children shed. I don’t have to worry about that particular thing.
Today, I dropped off the little one at a Kindergarten prep course. Her very first class, very first time in the building, and very first time meeting these people. She was off and running away from me before I even got her coat off. Didn’t look back, not once.
When I came to pick her up the teacher said, “Look who’s here to get you!” She turned, took one look at me and frowned, “You forgot my snack, ’cause I had snack time!”
Yup, no issues with independence or being left alone. Really, we’re the transportation and snack providing machinery in her life.
