Transitions

It was a week of transitions – the new preschool, new “friend” Tita living with us – lots of new stuff for all of us!

All in all, the week went as expected.  It was hard.  It was hard on Nathanael and it was hard on us.  It’s hard to believe he’s only been there for a week – it felt really long!  Probably because leaving a sobbing child who begs you to stay “just 5 minutes” is incredibly heart breaking.  I def cried as much as he did.  The good news is I feel really good about the teachers and pre school environment.  And I really like the director.  So, I think we will be fine but – boy oh boy – is it hard!  He also brings up some of his buddies from his old school and that’s incredibly hard as well.   That’s the part I feel the worst about.  He keeps asking about his “good buddies.”  Oy.

He’s got a bit of a breather.  They are closed for in service days today and tomorrow.  So, I stayed home today and tomorrow he goes to Grandma & Grandpa.  Wed will def be a grind but that’s just the way it goes.
