Ethan’s first day at Pre-school, 18 months

Well, it definitely wasn’t a perfect day, but it could have been worse. Ethan cried when I left and I got an update around 11:00 that he had been crying off and on all morning. He refused his snack at snack time.  I felt so guilty all day long. It was an emotionally draining day for me.

I didn’t feel this way when I left him at daycare for the first time. Maybe it was because he was younger and not so aware that he wasn’t with mom and dad, no crying happened then. I’m sure he felt like he was just abandoned with a bunch of strangers.

There are 3 teachers in his class and, apparently he would get upset when the one that he had been with most, left to use the restroom etc. He seemed to be doing quite well when I picked him up at 5:00 however and he was playing with some dinosaurs (which he loves)!

His first lunch was:

Cucumbers, whole grain crackers, chicken tender, string cheese and sliced apples. He pretty much ate everything!
