Kindergarten has been great. My little thing 1 is just dying to get there everyday. He is a young five and will only be five here in a couple of months. I was nervous about putting him in with him being so little. He really had a rough day yesterday.
All the little ones lined up and got ready to leave as they waved goodbye to the teacher. I couldn’t see Thing 1. He was still in the class room. The teacher’s aid was there and was trying to calm down my son. Then after the last child was sent to the loving arms of his parents she signaled me to follow her. She said, they were partnered off for a dance they were learning. He had gotten to excited and too silly. (Very typical Thing 1- or any boy lol) Then when they tried to calm him down by switching parners (the teacher became his partner) he flipped.There are two class mascots and they get to go home every Friday and Monday. It went home with someone else, and so he flipped even more!
Luckily for him -and them- it was fifteen minutes before they were all going home. I am praying this isn’t a habit. I am supposed to "help" in his class on Wed. of next week. I am starting to have flashbacks of when I was in the Primary with him and how he struggled to do what he was supposed to while I was present. I am pretty sure he’ll be fine, but my stomach is all tied in knots for him.
This I totally saw in my mind’s eye happening. I was just amazed that it happened this late in the game. We’ll see how this next week plays out.
