Erin's First Day of School

Ready to go to 1st grade!

In her new classroom.

Erin with me in her classroom.

Ready for some serious learning!
Erin started school last Wednesday after Tropical Dud Fay finally left the area. She is in the same class as 3 of her friends from her last school so things have been easier on all of us. Her teachers all seem to be pretty nice.
The 2nd day of school we had one of our usual morning chats. It really was sweet.
Erin: I don't like 1st grade Mama.
Me: Why not Erin?
Erin: I miss my friends.
Me: Erin, aren't the twins & Alyssa in your class?
Erin: Yes, but I miss everyone else.
Me: Erin this is a great opportunity for you to meet new people & make new friends. Besides, don't you see your old friends in aftercare?
Erin: Yes I do. But I wanna play with them.
Me: Then we'll make playdates.
Erin: Really? Okay, then I'll go to 1st grade Mama.
What goes through a child's mind always amazes me. Each conversation should go this easily!

Erin looks soooo cute in her uniform - such a big girl!! Jade didn't have any problems with the transition, but Jasmine did, the conversation was pretty much like yours and Erin's. It's funny how sometimes just a simple answer, like the one you gave, suffices for the little ones life problems!!

Mary said...
