Preschool

Well, I thought it would be rough and it was. Leila and I were both a mess of tears when it was time to go. Ugh. The teachers say she did well, considering how upset she was and that things will just get easier. I'm praying they're right.

Here she is before preschool, when we asked her how excited she was to go:

She liked showing daddy the fun kitchen things!
When we picked Leila up she was still upset, but not nearly as upset as when we first left. Her teacher said she didn't cry the whole time, but a lot of it. After her rough morning we decided to treat her to a Happy Meal. She told us she had fun at preschool, but missed mommy and daddy. We missed her too!
PS - how cute is the "Preschool Princess" dress my friend, Heather made her?!

She is SO beautiful. Logan did terribly his first couple days of preschool too. If he can get better, anyone can. I highly recommend teaching the mantra, "Mommy always comes back."

It will only get better sweetie. I may not have the babies yet but i taught preschool and remember that it didn't take long before the kids were leaving the parents in the dust to run into class excited to see their friends and play. We are a social butterfly family and it won't take her long to adapt. Give her a big squeeze for me and tell her I'm proud of her (and her momma too!!) Love you!!!
