Sigh of Relief!

Today was Munchkins first day back to school. I have to say I was a bit nervous. We were out of town for the meet the teacher, see the classroom, orientation jazz, and knowing that she is such a creature of habit I was afraid of what was going to happen when I dropped her at the curb to some strange ladies in a completely different part of the school.

She woke up this morning and of course, she didn't want to go to school. She wanted to be in her old class with Miss D and Miss L ..... I was able to distract her and remind her of the fun things there would be in her new classroom and told her that I was sure she would be able to say hi to her old teachers today.... Then I begged promised I would get her a special bribe "first day back to school treat." She conceded and even acted somewhat excited.

I dropped her off to people that I haven't met either, which didn't help my nerves. I cried a little tear when I saw how her new teacher greeted her, my heart melted, she didn't give me a second glance and I was a distant memory as I drove off watching in the rear view mirror.

I picked her up (early of course) and the first thing she said? "Mom, I want to stay here all day long!!!" She was ecstatic and I was happier than I can even explain.

Today was a good day.
