First day of school, first day of school!

For those of you who have already begun school for this year, this comes a little late, but better late than never, right?

Me: "Molly, did you have a good day at preschool?"

Molly: "Yes. There was a little girl crying too."

Me: "Oh. Why was she crying? Did she get hurt today?"

Molly: "No, she wanted her mama. She was saying, 'I want my mommy.'"

Me: "Oh. Well, did YOU want your mama today?"

Molly: "Nah."

Me (understandably upset, mind you): "Well! Did you want your daddy, then?"

Molly: "Unh uh."

Me: "So you wanted your brother? You wanted Bubba at school, right?"

Molly: "Heck no!"

So, as you can see, we are extremely concerned about Molly's awkward transition phase, and we are really hoping that she gets this shy, awkward phase worked through quickly.

Yeah, right.

We had the same "transition" into kindergarten issues with our oldest. I was worried she'd be a shy little wallflower. How wrong I was!
