Maddy started preschool today.  Her very first day at school.

We met her teacher last week and before I even opened the door to her classroom, she said to me “let’s go to the car mommy.”

Meet the teacher went ok though, she played and did an art project.   But afterwards when I told her this week I would leave her there, she wasn’t too keen on the idea.  She wanted me to stay with her, like in our mommy and me classes last year.

So I spent the rest of last week talking the place up, reminding her the very first thing she would get to do was “outside time.”  What kid doesn’t love that?

And this morning she seemed ready to go.   Maddy’s preschool starts before Hayden’s school, 8:35am to be exact.  So Andy, Hayden and I all took Maddy to her very first day of preschool.

Which I think she liked  that Hayden got to be there with her.

We walked her in and got her settled.  And hung around for just a tiny bit, just to make sure she was ok.  She did ask me where her friend Farley (aka Charley) was.  I told her, she was coming,  they are in the same class.  Then  I gave her a big hug, said I loved her, gave her hand a kiss to keep and said I would be back.

And Maddy…She smiled at us and didn’t cry.  She was quiet when we left her, taking it all in.

I got a little misty eyed when we left her at school.  But it really did help me that she seemed completely ok.

When I picked her up, she was full of things to share:

*  Her favorite thing was outside time.

* She had a graham cracker snack.

*  She got to read a book, but didn’t have time to finish it because it had lots of stories.

* She liked the “Jobs” she got to do, and the froggy one was her favorite.

* She played with her friend Farley and some other kids.

* And my favorite thing she said, “It wasn’t scary Mommy, it was fun, you were right Mommy!”

And what did I do after getting Hayden on the bus….

I went to TJ Maxx….All by myself on a weekday, and it was fun:)
