Parker had mixed emotions about starting preschool today. He couldnt wait to get dressed and wear his new backpack but then kept saying things like "Im shy. How am I going to make friends. Mom dont leave me." But as we were driving to his school we talked about how to not be shy, how to make friends and that I would stay for a few minutes until he was comfortable... we got there and he kept right to my side. Every time I said I was leaving he would tell me he wanted to hug me (I swear I got at least 20 hugs/kisses - which Im not complaining.. it was rather cute!) About 5-10 minutes later he warmed up and I then left. After school was over, I picked him up and on the way home he told me how much he loves school and all about his day. I knew he would love it!
