One More Mommy

Preschool, Month 1

Luke has gone through a month of preschool now, and he's got it pretty down pat. The teachers report that the class is a smart group, they were involved and ready to go from day one, though they are acting up as they get more comfortable with the routine and each other.

He has never cried when I leave and is always happy to head to school. He has two best pals, one of whom is a friend we've known a couple years, and the other is a new kid they picked up. His friend's mom volunteered in the class last Tuesday (we're required to) and she reported that the three of them spent much of the time playing together. When I picked Luke up last Thursday, I saw all the children on the playground, and those three were chasing each other.

At the end of the day, they march in from playing outside while the parents wait in the hall - a three year od parade. Luke always has a proud cat-that-ate-the-canary smile on his face, and never runs to me as others have done to hug their moms. They have to go sit down in class, you know, there's none of this hugging in the halls! (He always gives me a big hug in the classroom).

He's done more art in preschool than he does at home, which is something I really wanted him to get from classes. I do as much as I can, but there's so much to gain from seeing other kids doing something.
