As I write this, the wind is blowing outside. While it has been overcast all day, it was balmy and warm this morning, but now there is a crispness to the air. A sign that change is coming - one season ends and another begins. And so things are changing in our family and in the life of our little boy - Jonah started preschool today.
Here he is immediately after I dropped him off:
His classroom has a door that opens out to this new playground:
When I went to pick him up, I snapped the above picture before the teacher told him, "Jonah, your mommy is here." He just ignored her in that "So what" kind of way - needless to say, I was not feeling the love. Promises to return and other distractions eased his departure somewhat.
When an opportunity arose at the beginning of the week for him to go to preschool, I started to get cold feet. Primarily due to the fact that the opportunity was for a 3 day/week class (9am-noon) versus a two day a week class. I guess my trepidation was unwarranted as he would seem to prefer 5 day a week class!
